Scheme Title: St Edmundsbury Rural North No.26 ‘Troston’
When Police conduct house to house enquiries after a crime has occurred, they often find that people only then report something that had been seen or heard earlier and that was possibly suspicious or odd, but which had not reported at the time.
On it's own, something might seem odd but trivial, and people might not think it worth reporting. However it is very often a missing part of a much bigger picture that may very well (and often does!) lead to the identification and conviction of offenders.
If it looks suspicious or odd, no matter what it is, not matter what time it happens - PLEASE call it in on 101 or, if it is an emergency, 999. Calls to 101 from both landlines and mobile networks cost 15 pence per call, regardless of what time of day or how long the phone call.
it’s one of the most successful crime prevention initiatives ever, based on a simple idea and a central value shared by millions of people across the country.
