 Neighbourhood Watch Warning - Cold Callers

Bedfordshire Police are aware of Cold Callers operating in the Bromham area.

We ask all residents to be mindful when approached by anyone offering to carry out work on your home or garden.

It is always best to ensure you are totally satisfied that the individual or company are experienced in the line of work being offered and that they can offer genuine references that will allow you to check previous work carried out.

If in doubt, do not commit.

Please report any suspicious individuals or activity to Bedfordshire Police on 101

Neighbourhood Watch has changed dramatically over the past few years and is in the forefront of fighting new types of crimes that criminals are turning to as well as informing the public about local issues.  Bulletins are now issued almost weekly informing the community of crimes, scams and bogus activities.  We desperately need street co-ordinators to forward these bulletins onto their local communities to make people aware of the new crimes.  Many of you are aware of the savage cut backs in Police resources and Neighbourhood Watch has become the eyes and ears of the local Police dramatically reducing crime in areas where they are active.

Bromham itself is a relatively 'safe' village compared to some areas in Bedfordshire so let's not be complacent and ensure by all playing a small part we can keep our village this way.
