Neighbourhood Watch - June 2017

Change in counting rules in burglary 

As reported last month, from April 2017 residential burglary will now include all buildings or parts of buildings that are within the boundary of, or form a part of, a dwelling and includes the dwelling itself, vacant dwellings, sheds, garages, outhouses, summer houses and any other structure that meets the definition of a building. 

The impact on the change will vary across boroughs but is likely to show close to a 12% increase on the current burglary dwelling figures. You may notice the change in weekly and month crime figures. 

Smart Water kits 

All except four cheques have been cashed and codes have been sent to over 100 residents.  There were many more who expressed an interest in a Smart Water kit but did not send a cheque.  If you want to know more about smart water or have any questions please visit the smart water website
