Good Morning,

The City of London Police, in partnership with Get Safe Online, has put together a National Cyber Crime Survey. Its purpose is to learn about people's awareness of online safety and experiences of cybercrime, with a view to improve our knowledge and understanding and to help provide a better response to victims. The results will help police forces gain a better idea of the challenges they are facing. If you have a spare 15 minutes, we would be grateful if you could complete a short questionnaire.

Bottesford NHW Alert: Keys Found / Door to Door Sellers

Keys Found
If anyone has lost a key ring with a yale key and one other please contact NHW. Found on the High Street by the bust stop near The Thatch.
 
Door to Door Sellers
Whilst the advice is not to buy goods at the door, anyone coming to your door wishing to sell items must hold for a Pedlar's Certificate. Certificates, when issued, will be laminated and contain a photograph, and they expire one year from the date of issue. They have the name of the issuing police force on them. The trader must carry this when trading. If the pedlar fails to produce a valid certificate upon demand, he is guilty of an offence and can be prosecuted. It is rare these people carry the correct documentation and therefore they are trading illegally.

 

If you have someone selling items at your door please contact the police by ringing 101 (Non Emergency number).

Bottesford NHW Alert: Thefts of Tools from Vehicles- Advice from the Police

Leicestershire Police is urging van drivers not to leave tools in their vehicles overnight after 26 attempted or successful thefts from vans have been reported over the past week.

Chief Superintendent Andy Lee, Commander of the Local Policing Directorate said; "We have received a number of reports from across the force area of theft or tools from vans.

"The majority of thefts have been taking place overnight on driveways of homes but we have also seen some occurrences in hotel car parks. I would encourage van owners to take precautions, both at home and when staying overnight in hotels, to reduce their chances of becoming a victim of this type of crime.

"These tools are essential for people to carry out their jobs, and without them their livelihood can be affected. We are urging people to follow the advice below to ensure they don't fall victim to tool theft."

To help protect your property we recommend;

  • removing all tools from vehicles overnight

  • purchasing a sign or sticker advising that no tools are left in your van overnight

  • parking your vehicle in a garage if you have one

  • consider alarming the vehicle or fitting an internal security cage

  • if you park on a drive, installing security lights

  • visibly marking your machinery and tools

  • if possible, parking your vehicle close to a wall so that the doors cannot be opened

  • reporting any suspicious activity to us immediately on 101

If you would like more information on how to protect your vehicle and property from thieves please visit our vehicle crime pages

Bottesford NHW Alert: Burglary in Long Clawson: Footpaths - Dog Fouling

Burglary in Long Clawson:

Overnight into the morning (16/06) there was a burglary of a property in Long Clawson. A laptop displaying ARLA logo, a hard drive and a bag containing shotgun cartridges were stolen. If anyone sees any of these items in the area, has any information, or has seen anything suspicious, please call Police as soon as possible on 101

 

Footpaths - Dog Fouling:

NHW has recently received a number of complaints about dog fouling of the footpaths surrounding the village. The path up to The Beacon and the old railway track running at the west end of the village have been identified as particularly bad. Fouling by dogs is not only unsightly but it is a serious risk to health particularly to children who may not be so careful as adults as to where they walk. If you own a dog please take responsibility for clearing up after it and for keeping the surrounding footpaths clean and safe. Thank you.
