Great Dunmow remains a relatively low crime neighbourhood but we recognise that if you have been a victim or witness of crime the perception may be very different.

In order to combat this fear of crime we will continue with high visibility patrols in the town. We also engage on a regular basis with partner agencies such as the local council and housing associations to find alternative ways to combat crime and address other issues in the neighbourhood.

With Christmas only a few weeks away, we thought it would be timely to remind you of some crime prevention advice which might get overlooked in the haste to get everything ready. These simple steps will help to ensure that your Christmas isn’t spoiled by criminals.

Out Shopping:
- With crowded shops, the pickpocket has more opportunities. Stay alert and be extra careful with your wallet or purse; never keep them in accessible rear trouser pockets. Purse dipping bells are available to buy from the Uttlesford Neighbourhood Watch website ( for 50p or from Saffron Walden Police Station.
- Keep your chequebook, and any debit or credit cards, safely out of reach and out of view.
- Park in a well lit area, lock all doors and windows and do not leave presents in view. Try not to return to your car to leave purchases in the boot before continuing with your shopping as thieves may well watch car parks for just such a chance. Arrange to collect heavy items from stores when you have finished all of your shopping.

At home:
- Keep presents out of sight until last thing on Christmas Eve and if you 'hide' or store larger items such as bicycles in the shed or outbuildings, make sure they are very secure. There is a useful shed alarm which can be bought through the Uttlesford Neighbourhood Watch website (as above) priced at £15. You can also find tips on the website for other ways to keep your shed secure.
- Dispose of packing carefully; empty boxes left outside advertise that you have new goods inside.
- If you go out for the evening make it look like someone is at home by turning on lights and the radio. Don't leave curtains open as potential thieves can see in.
- If you go away for the holiday period use an automatic timer for lights and ask a trusted neighbour to watch your home. Don't forget to cancel newspapers and milk if you have them delivered and have your neighbour take mail into the house.

Out on the town:
- Busy places make it easier for the sneak thief; don't leave bags over the back of your chair and keep wallets and purses close to your body.
- Avoid any potential disturbances on the street and stay with friends if you can.
- Make sure someone knows where you are going and make prior arrangements as to how you will get home.

Winter motoring:
With the bad weather now upon us please be careful whilst out and about. Here are some tips to make your journey safer:
- Check your vehicle before using it especially the windscreen wipers and screen wash.
- Make sure you have enough fuel to get to your destination.
- Keep warm clothes or a blanket and a torch in your vehicle.
- Make sure you have food and drink with you in the vehicle.
- If possible make sure you have a fully charged phone with you in the vehicle.

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