We are fortunate to live in an area that has a relatively low level of crime compared to other parts of Cambridge and the UK. This is something that the Trumpington Meadows Community would like to maintain. A Neighbourhood Watch scheme was put forward as an agenda item at the Trumpington Meadows Annual General Meeting on 22 February 2018. The proposal received an overwhelmingly positive response amongst residents present at the meeting who wanted a proactive approach to crime prevention. Trumpington Meadows Community is now in the process of setting up the scheme.
Cambridgeshire Neighbourhood Watch
Neighbourhood Watch is the largest crime prevention movement in England and Wales with 8.7 million member households. It is a community based scheme that aims to reduce and deter crime and encourage strong neighbourhood relationships. It involves neighbours working together by watching out for each other’s property and alerting police of suspicious activity. It teaches residents to secure their property, be aware of their surroundings, communicate with their neighbours, and help combat crime before it happens. Register your interest in the scheme by navigating to the Contact Us section.
In an emergency always dial 999. You should call 101 to report crime and other concerns that do not require an emergency response. If you want to report a crime, but you do not want to be identified to the police, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or report a crime anonymously via the Crimestoppers website.
Anti-social behaviour covers a wide range of unacceptable activity that causes harm to an individual, to the community or to the environment. Keep a record of any incident of anti-social behaviour, including dates, times, details of anyone involved and what happened. Please refer to the list below for the relevant authority to contact:
