Operation Oaklands – Tackling crime across South Cambs
The format for Operation Oaklands is changing this week; each Neighbourhood Sector team will be covering a village on their beat for a three week period. Three South Cambridgeshire villages will be included at the same time.
Officers will focus on crime prevention measures, and provide security advice to residents in order to combat burglary, vehicle crime and theft.
South Cambridgeshire is a large rural community, and crime analysis has shown the area does not follow an identifiable crime pattern, as you might see in an urban area. Therefore crime prevention and intelligence led patrols are key factors to reduce crime levels.
Regular information and updates will be posted via Ecops (www.ecops.org.uk) and Neighbourhood Watch messaging (http://www.ourwatch.org.uk) as well as on our twitter account http://www.twitter.com/southcambscops
Officers will be offering residents Smartwater property coding kits for a reduced price of £10, plus shed and window alarms at cost price.
Please find below a guide with dates when we will be visiting various villages and towns over the coming months. If you need advice on home, shed or vehicle security and don’t live in the villages listed below, please call 101 and to speak to your local PCSO.
