Suspicious Behaviour

Three hooded males were captured on various cameras trying car doors and peering into basement windows along Ashburnham Place and Ashburnham Grove this morning - Monday 28th January - between the hours of 00:23 and 03:15 today. They were obviously looking for vulnerable properties / cars to break-in to.  Don’t let them easily get your valuables. Ensure you car is locked when you leave it and DO NOT leave ANYTHING on display in your vehicle.

Also, I have just been advised there was a burglary in Brand Street where entry was made via the front door. PLEASE ensure you bolt your door at night. Entry can be made easily via just a Yale lock.

Can I also remind you that we are trialling SmartWater in the Triangle this Saturday, 2nd February. There are still kits available to reserve. Please email me if you would like one - ata.secureteam@gmail.com.

WHAT IS SMARTWATER® 
SmartWater is a way for police to definitively link your valuable items to you. Almost invisible to the naked eye, the advanced liquid glows yellowy-green under UV light and every bottle has a unique forensic code. This means if an item is recovered by the police which is marked by SmartWater, such as a bicycle, the police can use forensic analysis to identify the address and return the bike to its rightful owner. It can be used to invisibly tag all your valuable items, from watches and jewellery to laptops and mobile phones. The application will last approximately 5 years and it's almost impossible to remove. To date, the use of SmartWater has had a 100% conviction rate in court and has been proved to reduce burglaries by 85%. 


There are 100 kits to be given to residents within the Triangle. To receive your kit you will need to be available on Saturday 2nd February between the hours of 10am and 2pm so a member of our Safer Neighbourhood Team can visit you and provide you with your unique SmartWater kit. They will also happily provide general crime prevention advice at the same time.
