Neighbourhood Watch

Thefts and Burglaries.

 

Recently there have been a series of offences within Pattishall Parish including thefts from vehicles, gardens, number plate stolen and an attempted burglary (in which the burglar was disturbed and managed to get away). This is happening in surrounding villages too.  The Police believe this is part of a much bigger series of offences being perpetrated in South Northants.

 

Please make sure your vehicles, sheds, houses and gates are locked.  If you are a victim of a theft please report to the Police (even if you didn't lock your property).  

 

CCTV

 

The Police are very interested in any CCTV footage showing suspicious persons/vehicles. 

  • CCTV must be produced to the Police by persons owning it so that it can be exhibited properly and provides continuity of that evidence for CPS and ultimately Court.
  • CCTV will only be evidential if it shows a person committing an offence.
  • Any Stills or CCTV forwarded by a third party may be used in intelligence – to allow the Police to quickly circulate to officers to try to identify an offender but they still need the original footage.
  • CCTV that just shows a person only can be used to corroborate that they were present in a location but does not prove they committed the offence.
  • If residents are struggling to create stills or a copy of the footage then they can contact the Police direct. They will try to get an officer to come and assist.

 

Please remain vigilant and continue reporting any suspicious incident/persons/vehicles on 101.  Sometimes the phone is not answered – this is because 999 phone calls at that time are so high there is no one to answer 101.

 

However, if you phone 101 from a mobile there is a call back option.

  • If Offenders are nearby       call 999
  • If a crime is in progress       call 999
  • Injury caused/threatened     call 999
  • In an emergency                 call 999
  • If a life is at risk                  call 999
