Priority 1: Dwelling Burglaries
There have been a number of burglaries in the Shotgate area, mainly in the Avenue's. The majority of these burglaries are from the front door being forced open and entry being gained. To combat this, Wickford Neighbourhood Policing Team have given local residents advice through the door to protect your property and during the evenings and early hours of the morning police patrols have been increased. If you hear anything at night that sounds out of the ordinary, please contact the police. We rather it be a false alarm than an actual burglary taking place.
