The purposes of this page are to provide general advice about security and to post specific news, warnings, etc. Suggestions for content welcomed.
Please could you email me with any information relating to crime on the estate in the past 12 months no matter how small or insignificant as we need to make all aware.
Whilst collecting email addresses over the last couple of days I have been informed about break ins to suspicious individuals and possibly a bogus gas reader on the estate.
Some of you live close to elderly residents that maybe vulnerable so if you see or hear anything suspicious please check that they are ok
We all need to look out for each other and not be afraid to call the police.
The more proactive we are the better.

THIS IS A RINGMASTER MESSAGE FROM HILLINGDON CRIME PREVENTION DEPARTMENT.
Residents of Hillingdon are presently receiving telephone 'cold calls' from a company called Crime Prevention UK regarding free alarms.
Their intention is to arrange for a representative to visit your home, where you may be offered a free alarm, but they may want you to sign up to pay the monitoring charges.
If you receive a 'cold call' you are advised not to give out any personal details and not to agree to any visit.
For advise regarding burglar alarms please contact your crime prevention officer on 0208 246 1779 or Trading Standards on 01895 250111 information cam also be obtained via website www.metbumblebee.org
On 24/03/2011 CAVENDISH SAFER NEIGHBOURHOODS were contacted by a local resident regarding what they perceived to be a leaflet purporting to be a current charity clothing collection, that they believed to be suspicious.
The leaflet details a HELPING ARMS COMPANY LIMITED REG NO 7119680 apparently supporting UNIVERSITY COLLEGE HOSPITAL.
The leaflet uses the word charitable in an attempt to suggest the organisation is a charity. The phone number given does not accept incoming calls.
Enquiries reveal that this is a bogus charity whilst we have no descriptions of suspects or vehicles used any information would be useful.
If you observe persons distributing these leaflets please contact police immediately or alternatively contact your local safer neighbourhood Team.
