Update

[updated 02/02/16]

**REPORTS OF CRIME**

If you believe you have been a victim of crime, please call police on 101 and ask for the crime bureau. Details will be recorded and you will receive an investigation reference number. This can be forwarded to insurance companies if you are making a claim. If relevant an officer will be allocated, but in some cases you will be informed the case will be closed unless further evidence comes to light. If you prefer you can still report crime directly at your local police station. Please check our website for opening times and locations.

**ECM smart phone APP**

PLEASE NOTE we have been advised by the software engineers that the smart phone APP is working again.

**LOCAL COMMUNITY MEETING (LCM)**

Please check the events tab for more details and dates.

PLEASE NOTE: on occasions, an officer may not be available to attend the meeting due to urgent operational commitments.

**ESSEX COMMUNITY MESSAGING**

Please sign up to www.essexcommunitymessaging.org for accurate email notifications of acquisitive crime in your area, sent directly from Essex Police and partners. The service allows you to select multiple postcode locations for example if you wanted to keep a check on the area of where a relative lives that is maybe not on the internet. Sign up is very quick and your details are not shared.

**FORD FIESTA**

Fiestas remain the favourite vehicle choice of thieves. Not only to be stolen, but also to have parts stolen from and items from within. Alloy wheels should be secured using decent locking wheel nuts and also consider a 'tilt' activated alarm. In addition to wheels, spoilers and body kits are also being stolen. Our crime reduction officer has spoken to Ford and there are no plans to modify how these parts are secured, so owners need to consider other methods of security.
Wherever possible; vehicles should be parked with the front end close to another vehicle, wall or garage door to make bumper removal difficult.

**NIGHT TIME ECONOMY**

Rayleigh has a good night life and following the closure of venues in other towns, Rayleigh is getting busier. To address this officers are patrolling on foot on Friday and Saturday nights into the early hours of the following morning. We have already seen a reduction in incidents being reported.

**BURGLARY**

Details of most burglaries in the District are circulated via ECM and social media. Permission to circulate is sometimes refused by the victim.

The internet is full of useful crime reduction advice or you can contact our Crime Reduction Officer Emma Clark on 101 ext. 490533. We strongly urge you to improve your security in any way you can. Perhaps even create a neighbourhood watch scheme?

BUY A SAFE for your jewellery!!! Jewellery is still the most sought after item although ‘Apple’ products and laptops are also popular. Jewellery should be kept in a safe which does not necessarily have to cost as much as you think. In some cases valuable or sentimental items are stolen which would more than justify the relatively inexpensive purchase of a safe.
Smashing the glass on rear doors still seems to be the favoured method of entry but forcing front doors has also emerged as a method.

The best way to protect your home is with an alarm system. Adding an alarm really is worthwhile as it will deter a burglar from hanging around long enough to take lots of items or search your home. Other deterrents include: Dogs, PIR or low level lighting and gravel drives. UPVC doors especially those with an external handle should be secured by a key.

**CRIMINAL DAMAGE**

It is very difficult to prevent damage as they can be committed so quickly. The offences occur sporadically and all over the neighbourhood. Often these are committed without any warning or without reason.

**THEFT FROM MOTOR VEHICLE**

Secure your vehicle and remove all valuable property.
Popular items to be stolen include; car number plates and wheels, designer sunglasses, SatNavs, money, wallets, keys and laptops! There isn't really a limit though as thieves will steal anything on offer. !!!WARNING - SATNAVs ARE NOT SAFE IN YOUR GLOVEBOX!!!

**NPT MOBILES**

Essex Police is facing an unprecedented level of demand for its service and there is a need for us to concentrate our resources on meeting this demand, especially in areas that present the greatest threat or risk of harm to the public and the more vulnerable members of our community. We are continually working to provide a high quality service and to ensure consistency we have decided to withdraw the use of Neighbourhood Policing mobile phones. In order to ensure that you receive the most appropriate response to your call we ask that you use the 101 number for non-emergency calls and dial 999 in the case of emergencies. The Neighbourhood Policing Team mobile phone messages will now redirect callers to 101.

**NOISE NUISANCE**

Police do not have any powers in relation to dealing with noise. Your Environmental Protection offices at Rochford District Council are charged with investigating matters of noise. In most circumstances the problem can easily be resolved by politely telling the person about it, if they do not know it is a problem they cannot deal with it. If after a reasonable amount of time nothing has been done to solve the problem, you can register your complaint. You can do this by completing the on-line form ‘make a complaint about a noise’ www.rochford.gov.uk or if you require any further advice you may contact them by phone on 01702 318111 and ask for the Environmental Protection Unit, or e-mail customerservices@rochford.gov.uk

In some cases the noise may be a police matter under ‘anti-social behaviour’ for example a party being held on a regular basis when parents are away. Regular meetings are held between the police and District Council community safety department. If you are in any doubt or for more advice, please contact us.

**COMMUNITY SPEED WATCH**

The CSW scheme has been running for just over a year in Rayleigh & Rawreth. There are currently 9 recognised sites the volunteers can use. CSW is a partnership between the local community, local authority and Essex Police. Volunteers are trained to use speed detecting devices for the purpose of gathering data on motorists who are speeding. Volunteers are playing an integral part in improving the quality of life by reducing anti-social behaviour on the roads but also raising the awareness of the dangers of speeding.
If you would like to take part as a volunteer or to find out more details; please contact Cllr Ian Ward at Rayleigh Town Council on 01268 741880.

**SMOKE ALARM**

Do you have a working smoke alarm?? Have you ever discussed an emergency escape plan with your family - should a fire happen?? For further advice call Southend Fire station on 01702 614433.

**NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH**

To find out more information on whether your street is covered by Neighbourhood Watch, or how to start your own; please contact the NHW team at Rayleigh on 01268 770519. NHWRayleigh@gmail.com
NHW are now on FACEBOOK. Search for 'Rochford District Neighbourhood Watch' group.

**CRIMESTOPPERS**

Crimestoppers are an independent charity organisation and calls to them are anonymous. You can report information on; crimes, who is committing them, drug users & dealers, amongst other matters to 0800 555 111, www.crimestoppers-uk.org

You can take action in a number of ways to help make your neighbourhood a safer place to live, work and visit.
