NOT BE COMPLACENT
Swanland is a low crime area but this can lead to easy pickings
for an opportunist - keep doors, windows, cars & sheds LOCKED
Village is covered by about 35 volunteer street co-ordinators who
meet together every four months to review any incidents of crime.
A Police Officer usually attends co-ordinator meetings to answer
questions about security and to review the latest crime reports
for Swanland and the South Hunsley Area.
Co-ordinators can act as a focal point for any crime based problem.
They can inform their neighbours of any security warnings from the
police, and keep an eye on empty houses while the owners are away.
Fortunately we have relatively few problems in Swanland.
the past year some new co-ordinators have joined the Swanland group
but more are needed. In particular we need more help in the following
areas: Greenstiles Lane, Styles Croft, Woodside, Easonby Close,
Waudby View, The Green, Crowther Way/Close, Queensbury Way, Dale
Close, West Leys Road, Kemp Road (Bottom end ), Chantry Way East,
Beech Hill Road and Westerdale.
