Neighbourhood Watch Notes for March - April 2020


  • Whilst there been a good deal of rain at least the days are getting longer! A date to note – the clocks (spring forward) during the early hours of Sunday 29th March.
  • During January changes of Police personnel based at the Belper SNT, (& elsewhere) took place, so my challenge was to ‘generate’ a new contact for Kilburn SNT. This I, eventually, managed to achieve on the first Monday in March. Contact was made with PCSO Connor Smith (currently a member of the Belper SNT). He has kindly provided some feedback:-
  • Holbrook – it has been reported that a few scam telephone calls. Happily no fraud has occurred, as money needs to be taken for that to be the case. Nevertheless residents should remain vigilant; never provide any bank details and it’s best to put the phone down if a scam is suspected.  (My son simply rests the phone on his desk and says nothing – as he takes the view that it’s is costing the caller – and that they’ll ‘get the message’ !)
  • There has been a few, suspicious, door-salesmen who cannot comply with a ‘No-Callers’ notice. Simply be polite, bid them a farewell ‘no thank you’, and shut the door.
  • There have also been reports of parking disputes – the issues could be rectified if people were more considerate.
  • Kilburn – whilst it’s relatively local, being but some 2 miles away, it’s as well to be aware of incidents thereabouts. A few cases of ‘drunk in control’ of motor vehicles have been reported. People should think, very seriously, before drink-driving.
  • There have also been a few parking disputes too. Again – the issues would be rectified if folk were more a little more considerate.
  • There has also been some criminal damage. If folk could install a home CCTV it would help in almost every case.
  • Apart from the above have you seen anything that you regard as untoward.
  • To the passer-by it’s not obvious as to what arrangements the Autistic School has carried out to alleviate congestion – especially when some cars are parked half on/off the road near the entrance. On the other hand care needs to be taken, by all, on frosty mornings too – and when passing the cars parked on the grass verge.

Crime Prevention Advice for Garden Sheds


  • Make sure there are no tools left in the garden that could be used to attack the shed.
  • Lock all windows.
  • Cover up the window so people can’t see what is in the shed.
  • Fit coach bolts or non-return screws (use to replace all screws on the hinges and locks).
  • Use a hasp and staple to secure shed.
  • Fit a padlock (certified to BS EN 12320 minimum Grade 3)
  • Please ensure that your property is positively identified – by the use of, say, an UltraViolet (U/V) Pen.

If you need Crime Prevention advice, contact our local Police Officer – refer to details above.
