He encouraged all to report any suspicious activity/crime – citing issues on Ford Road, including deposits of small silver cans to suspicious vehicles.

101 for urgent calls, 999 for urgent response alternatively Reporting non-emergencies online. To view the online reporting section of the constabulary’s website visit www.cambs.police.uk/report/. The live webchat function is available by clicking on the green icon on the bottom right of the page.

In October last year (2018) Cambridgeshire Constabulary re-launched their website with added functionality to report non-emergencies via specially designed forms or a live webchat.

The live webchat option enables people to communicate directly with a member of staff in the control room, just as would be the case when calling 101. Online forms are processed in the same way as a call and the person reporting can expect a response within 24 hours.

Due to the high level of demand there are often queues when calling 101. Reporting online is quick, easy and free of charge.

Superintendent James Sutherland said: “In the digital age people are doing more and more online. I’m pleased that our website now has increased capability to allow people to contact us in this way.
The system went through a thorough testing process and has been used successfully thousands of times since being introduced.

“Feedback from a recent survey suggested that some people wanted to communicate directly with a person rather than submitting an online form. The webchat function allows people to do exactly that.
Report submitted online are treated in the same way as when people call 101 and will receive the same outcome.”

Neighbourhood Watch

The Neighbourhood Watch scheme in Hail Weston as you may know requires volunteers.  The task is not too onerous.  As a start a new member on the Parish Council, Peter Mailer,  has offered to try and help, so there is at least a point of contact.

Peter  is hoping to contact the appropriate local community police officer to meet some of us at the neighbourhood café in the Village Hall hopefully in January.   This hopefully will enable Hail Weston to perhaps understand what we should be doing to protect what is ours and improve understanding of running an effective Neighbourhood Watch scheme.

Peter has recently joined the E cops website, Cambridgeshire police and Huntingdonshire police.  By registering with eCops, you’ll receive news and appeals, local crime information and crime prevention advice – direct to you as an e-mail.   Any interested residents, can if haven’t already join here: –                                                              https://member-registration.neighbourhoodalert.co.uk/108/Join

In the meantime if you see anything suspicious or interested in helping please contact petermailer@btinternet.com as well as using the normal routes to contact the police!

Reporting Footpath Issues

With the winter weather we have noticed that some of the footpaths in the Parish have started to become rather difficult to pass. The people to report this to are CAMBRIDGESHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL, using their “Report a Problem” Service.

What to do:

It’s simple, easy, free and is the quickest way to report an issue to the right people.
