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 Trumpington Meadows Community would like to maintain. We are in the process of setting up a Neighbourhood Watch scheme and to do that we need your support – please register for the scheme.
Trumpington Meadows Community would like to have a Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator for every street in Trumpington Meadows. It’s a rewarding and important role that can bring a whole host of benefits to you and the community. Read more about becoming a Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator.
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 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, photos and details of anyone involved and what happened. Please refer to the list below for the relevant authority to contact:
eCops is an email messaging service from Cambridgeshire Constabulary and Neighbourhood Alert. It is a free service providing local crime information and crime prevention advice. It works alongside Neighbourhood Watch to bring you messages about your local area. It also allows you to feedback information to Cambridgeshire Constabulary to help them police Trumpington Meadows effectively. Register for eCops.
Kate Daisley, chief executive of the Neighbourhood and Home Watch Network for England and Wales, says: ‘The benefits of knowing your neighbours is self-evident – it is not just about taking in parcels when others are out but keeping an eye on properties when you are away.’
Thank you very much for your support and helping to keep Trumpington Meadows safe for everybody and we look forward to seeing you at our next community meeting.
