Keeping safe

Lower the likelihood of theft or damage to your car.

There’s been a spate of broken car windows on the estate and its surrounds, and the advice from local police is to make sure you leave nothing – not even small items of clothing or shopping – on display, as most of the crimes are committed by addicts who are desperate to fund their habit.

The cost and nuisance of replacing car windows usually greatly exceeds the value of the items stolen, so it’s worth the effort.

If you see a crime as it’s happening, please call the police immediately on 999.

Think before you click!

Cyber crime is increasing, with more people reporting phishing emails in recent years. If you receive an email or text message asking you to follow a link to give sensitive information such as a password or bank details, be mindful this is likely to be a scam.

Don’t respond to it, but also don’t ignore it. You can report it by forwarding suspicious emails to nfibphishing@city-of-london.pnn.police.uk or through the Action Fraud website.
