Rolvenden Neighbourhood Watch Scheme
Thank you to all the residents involved in the scheme. The NHW scheme continues with success because of the members,the joint area Co-ordinators: Jenny Wynter and Pam Murphy.
There are over 100 active members and there is a need to be proactive rather than reactive.
A reminder of the need to get details of any suspicious behaviour of people/vehicles:
Vehicles: registration number/make/model/colour
People: age/skin tone/hair/clothes/gait/distinguishing marks
There are still issues with:
1.Bogus callers - fake police officers, reps from the utility companies/distraction burglaries
2. Scams - e-mails and telephone callls. Don't open e-mails where you don't recognise the sender and be careful not to open attachments. Do not give out any personal details
Rolvenden NHW has strong links with Biddenden NHW.
Don't advertise that you are going on holiday on Facebook
Crime prevention downloads are available at: www.kent.police.uk/yourguide
25 - 50% of crimes are preventable
A tip to remember for burglaries: "daytime look, nighttime strike" - be suspicious of unusual daytime activity - people watching properties.
Thank you again to the NHW community
