September's Neighbourhood Watch
The Police have warned that there has been an outbreak of residential burglaries in the Ealing Road area of Brentford. Burglar(s) have been entering properties through windows that have been left open. The Police wish to remind residents to keep all doors and windows closed and secured even when leaving the property for a few minutes. Residents with garden sheds containing gardening equipment are also reminded to keep their sheds locked at all times.
Due to an increase in local bicycle crime, the Police would like to remind bicycle owners never to leave bicycles unlocked even for a short period. Use only good quality locks available from Cycles Stores, and if you have quick release saddles or wheels, remove them when the bicycle is not in use.
