At last week’s Safer Neighbourhoods Ward Panel meeting a small number of residential and motor vehicle burglaries were reported by the Police in the Triangle between July and October. There were five residential burglaries; one on Blackheath Road, two on Egerton Drive and two on Greenwich South Street. Although any burglary is one too many, these figures are encouraging in that they continue the downward trend compared to this time last year and since our Beat the Burglar leaflet was delivered to households in the Spring which you can refer to here. Beat the Burglar
Over the same period, there were two motor vehicle thefts around Devonshire Drive/Guildford Grove (probably mopeds) and one theft from a motor vehicle in the Catherine Grove area. Motor vehicle crime including the theft of mopeds, motorbikes and bicycles continues to be an ongoing issue throughout Greenwich.
Crime figures are listed on the met police website - select Text view for Greenwich West.
