e-Cops: useful information and worth getting connected


e-Cops are ‘weekly beat updates’ by email to anyone who’s signed up. David is and he’s just got the latest email which summarises recent criminal activity in the ‘Histon beat’. The Histon beat includes the two county divisions of Cottenham, Histon and Impington and Waterbeach. The same territory covered by the regular neighbourhood panels.

The crimes reported by e-Cops are rarely major but they are a part of a background of low level crime which is painful if you’re on the receiving end and generally disturning when you know it’s going on. By alerting people to what is happening they can take precautions and perhaps provide useful information which might result in an arrest.

This is what’s in this week’s e-Cops:

There seems to be a recurring trend at the moment of thefts from motor vehicles and theft of pedal cycles. Please don’t leave any of your valuables in a parked car and do make sure that your pedal cycle is locked up when you leave it. At least then you have made it a less appealing target.If you have any information about any of the above crimes please ring the police on 0345 456 456 4.Kind regards,Your local neighbourhood policing team.
