|Lindsay Gardiner (Police, PCSO, South Cambridgeshire – Cambourne)
We have recently had reports of suspicious activity in a local village involving people going door to door offering to clean windows and carry out general maintenance to properties. We recommend that you research online before saying yes to their services, ask for a card/ leaflet with their details and obtain a written quote.
Whilst there have been no specific reports received from the police of crimes relating to Haslingfield, there are surrounding villages where the police have reported crimes relating to burglary or shed break-ins, vehicle thefts or thefts from vehicles. The police encourage everyone to take a few extra seconds to check that their vehicle or home is secure before leaving it and removing any items of value from view.
The police are encouraging residents to do the “Bad Wolf Test” which is a security quiz aimed at homes in South Cambs. Stay safe and take the bad wolf test = www.tinyurl.com/Bad-Wolf-Test
Remain vigilant. If you see anything suspicious, or, anyone behaving suspiciously please report this to the police on telephone number 101
