Watch out for these suspicious chaps on a motor scooter. They rang my doorbell and waited to see if anyone was in. When I answered the door they shot off. Note the pillion passenger is not wearing a helmet. I reported this yesterday to the police by calling 101. If you see them you should do the same.

*Lock garages and sheds so garden tools and ladders can’t be used to break into your home.
*Keep side gates locked and wheelie bins stored behind them.
*Use timer switches linked to lights and a radio so it appears that someone is at home.
*Invest in a safe for valuables and sentimental items and securely fix it to a solid surface.
*Install a visible intruder alarm system – burglars don’t want to be seen or heard.
*Keep side and rear boundaries high to restrict access and front boundaries low to remove hiding places.
*Photograph and mark valuables and sentimental items with your postcode and house number/name. Register items with serial numbers at: immobilise.com

TO REPORT A CRIME CALL 101
The robbery, which left the proprietor very badly injured, took place on Monday 19 August between 10 and 11pm. If you have any information please contact DC Quigley at Bromley Police Station on 020 8284 99665 quoting crime reference 3315424/13. You may receive a reward.
Alternatively, if you don’t want to give your name, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
Across London there has been a growing trend of stealing cycles from garages and sheds. In your role as NHW coordinators could you please ask all of your NHW colleagues to be particularly vigilant to this type of crime and advise local communities of the benefits of two good quality locks placed on cycles (as thieves generally carry only one type of tool) and securing them to an immovable object. Audible sheds alarms are also a great deterrent and please lock away tools.
To successfully deal with this type of crime the MPS seeks information as to where these stolen cycles are being taken to and sold from. We would ask NHW and cycle clubs / enthusiasts to contact police if they become aware of any premises (residential or other) where different cycles are being regularly seen there. A recent arrest found a male with 3 stolen cycles in the living room of his flat and he was busy filing off the serial numbers. Many stolen cycles are being sold through the Internet. Cycle enthusiasts who regularly visit specialists sites can help the police combat this type of crime by reporting web activity and adverts which lead them to believe stolen cycles are being sold. It is the cyclists with specialist knowledge who can assist police by being our eyes and ears against crimes being committed against your community
Anyone having information or concerns should contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
The consultation runs from 7 January 2013 – 4 March 2013, and MOPAC are hosting town hall meetings in every London borough throughout January and February. The Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime, Stephen Greenhalgh, and senior Metropolitan Police officers will be sharing a platform at each event to answer questions and discuss the issues.
The Bromley borough event is being held on 28 January 2013 at 8pm at the Great Hall, Bromley Civic Centre, Stockwell Close, Bromley, Kent BR1 3UH.
Russ Winn tells us that several people in the village have received an email purporting to come from the Metropolitan Police sent by Michael Fox. It is titled “Urgent Message from Michael Fox – Metropolitan Police”
After consulting with the Safer Neighbourhood Team it is understand that whilst there is a Michael Fox at the Met he has NOT sent anything like this out. They added that on NO account should it be opened but reported to the Team on 07920 233857 or 0208 7212605 ASAP
Don’t let YOUR email account get hacked. Set a hard to guess (but easy to remember) password on your email accounts. A simple suggestion is to use a mixture of upper and lower case, then substitute numbers for some of the letters. Don’t use your date of birth, pet’s name etc. Free accounts such as Hotmail and Yahoo are particularly vulnerable.
