Residents told to report any suspicious activity around cars

To help combat car crime in Ealing, residents across the borough are being advised to report to police any suspicious activity being seen in and around vehicles.

Following a recent Safer Neighbourhood Team meeting about crime in the Southfield ward area which was attended by locals, police and councillors from Ealing Liberal Democrats, there was a call for people to report what they see which can help prioritise police deployment.

According to LibDems, often residents do not report suspicious activity such as people inspecting cars as they walk past them but the advice is to not ignore it and to dial 999 in a ongoing incident or 101 for other situations.

Southfield Councillor Gary Busuttil said: “Liberal Democrats have met the local police team. Their advice is that people who spot someone looking into their cars should report it to the police as soon as possible. By reporting these incidents, the police can get a picture of where crimes like this are happening or going to happen.”

Councillor Busuttil added: “The Liberal Democrats say that the police will target their resources where they get the most reports of crimes or suspicious behaviour so please do report these incidents if you see them.”
