Break-in Bluebridge Road - did you see anything?
« on: November 04, 2017, 11:51:40 am »
Herts police say a house in Bluebridge Road was broken into on Friday night November 3 between 7pm and 10.30pm. Apparently the occupant wasn't in the house at the time. The local PCSO, Samantha Griffin, wants to hear from anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious in the area during those three and a half hours. You can contact her by email on samantha (dot) griffin (at) herts.pnn.police.uk or call on 01707-354192. Samantha is also asking any local residents who know of elderly people who might appreciate a visit from the local community officer to discuss home security.

As usual, there is a pathetic lack of detail from the police, which would allow the other residents of Bluebridge Road (or indeed other roads) to find out if there is anything they could do differently to avoid the same fate. Whilst acknowledging that the resident concerned may not want to be identified, there are any number of questions which could be answered without giving away identification. e.g. Did the house have an alarm system, and was it armed? How was entry gained? Which side of the road is the property - i.e. should those houses backing Gobions be more wary than those backing other houses? Were there lights on? Is the fact that PCSO Griffin has asked us all to watch out for elderly neighbours mean that it was an elderly person that was targeted and therefore the perpetrator may be specifically targeting the elderly etc etc etc
I'm sure that we can all think of many more questions, and frankly, so should the police. Let's have the answers!

Our PCSO adds her email address to the neighbourhood watch updates, so you could drop her a line. There is also a phone number. For some reason, despite showing an early interest in the site and popping round to have a picture taken for her forum profile, PCSO Griffin stopped posting six years ago. It might be a corporate comms issue. Police updates are now down to local residents and the forum team spotting the neighbourhood watch alerts and then posting them to the site. But we never get more than the bare bones.

Would be nice to see more evidence of the PCSo in the village. Not seen one for ages!!  This is the second breakin on Bluebridge Road, as said a bit more detail may us all.
