Crime Prevention Tips
When out shopping lock the doors and windows of your car, sounds obvious but most vehicle crime occurs to insecure cars.
Don’t leave anything on display in an unattended vehicle. Even a jacket can appear as an appealing target to a thief.
Never store your car’s documents in the vehicle.

Also tuck in your car’s wing mirrors and put the aerial down to discourage vandals.
Recently we have been targeted by car thieves who will steal the property contained within your car or the car itself.

In order to reduce the incidence of what we refer to as car crime, please consider the following when parking and leaving your car unattended.

1) When parking at home, always use your garage (assuming you have one) lock the garage and car doors and close the windows. If you don’t have a garage, try to park in a well lit open place that’s overlooked by other homes. More chance that someone might hear or see something and tell the Police about it. Criminals don’t like to get caught.

2) Keep your car keys in a safe place, even whilst at home, so that anyone breaking into your home won’t be able to steal your car too.

3) When using public car parks, try to use one where possible that is monitored by an attendant or close circuit television (cctv).

4) Remove the stereo if you can.

5) Don't keep valuables or important documents in the glove box. Leave the glove box open to show there's nothing inside to steal.

6) Have the windows etched with the car's registration number.

7) Get an alarm fitted to your vehicle. If a thief knows your car is alarmed they are more likely to look for a softer target.

That is our 7 point plan which if followed may reduce the likelihood that you, or a member of your family is subjected to car crime.

The following locations were highlighted recently, as suffering from an increase in graffiti across the wards of Shoeburyness.

Police are working closely with other agencies and local schools in an attempt to identify persons responsible.
Please contact police as soon as possible, if you see any offences being committed or have any information in relation to this to increase the chances of detecting these offences.
Community Speed Watch
Community speed watch is a partnership between the local community, local authority and Essex Police. They are a team of volunteers trained to use a speed detecting device to gather data on motorists that are speeding, in an attempt to raise awareness of the dangers of speeding and anti social behaviour on our roads. Where appropriate the driver/registered keeper of offending vehicles will be sent a letter regarding their driving manner. Persistent offending may well be further targeted by police.

Should anyone wish to become a volunteer for the Community Speed Watch, and can spare one or two hours a month, please contact your local Policing Team on 07710 086590 and ask for PCSO 7630 Vanessa Toohey.

Neighbourhood Priorities were reviewed at the last NAP meeting which took place on Wednesday 29th January 2014 in the Police Office at Shoeburyness High School, Caulfield Road commencing at 7.30pm. All local residents are welcome to attend future meetings.
The next Neigbourhood Meeting (NAP) will be on Wednesday 26th March 2014 starting at 7.30pm. The location as always is the Police Office at Shoeburyness High School, Caulfield Road. Come along, make your contribution to Policing priorities in your community, have your say!

To avoid becoming a victim of burglary, always lock external doors and windows when the property is left empty, even if just for a short time. Use window locks (a burglar is less likely to smash a window to gain entry). Don’t leave spare keys outside or in a garage or shed. Lock all sheds as tools from a shed could be used to gain entry to your house. Use timers or leave lights and radios on, as this will create the impression that someone is in.

If you have any information you wish to pass to your Neighbourhood Policing Team please contact us on 07710 086590 or please call 101 and asked to be connected to Shoeburyness Police Station.

In situations requiring urgent police attendance call 999.

All non emergency situations the new national number is 101.

On Wednesday 19th February we completed a speed check in Delaware Road, Shoebury. Delaware Road has a maximum speed limit of 30mph. Over a 3 hour period we found the following :

49 speed records with a maximum of 39mph
9 verbal warnings,
1 section 165 vehicle seizure – for no insurance
1 ENDORSABLE Fixed Penalty – for no insurance
1 requirement to produce driving documents - may result in a Driving Without a Licence.

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