...no one knows your immediate area better than you, and now you have a facility with which you can be heard. In the past, many observations and pieces of intelligence from members of the public and concerned citizens have not been listened to. Many times as residents of the area, we have been aware of trouble brewing: gangs gathering and spoiling for trouble, con-men in the area, dodgy characters looking in car windows, people selling drugs, the list is endless. But, over the years, we have learnt that unless an incident is taking place at that moment, other issues take priority.
The truth however is that the police intelligence department do want this information, they value it and have been fantastically supportive of the development of a system to collect this information confidentially. All reports made are stored safely and the local Safer Neighbourhood teams, Police intel units and your local co-ordinators are notified that information has been reported. When the authorised personnel log in and respond to your report you are notified by e-mail.
In addition to this and thanks to a further commitment from the police, if you register on the system you will be given access to the police crime stats reports for your immediate area. A weekly report that will enable you to see exactly what crime has been reported in your street (no house numbers). This will enable you to take precautions against perhaps an increase in burglary or car theft or simply feel reassured that you have a downward crime trend in your area.
