People are quick to complain about the Police but our local bobbies have been pretty good this week.
Sunday night, MrsREV left her car unlocked ( ) and found that someone had gone through it (glovebox and centre console boxes had been left open). Nothing taken 'cos nothing was in it.
She mentioned it to our local PCSO and he said a few cars had had stuff taken from them and a couple of sheds had been gone through as well.
Tuesday night/Wednesday morning, a neighbour of ours got up at 3am and happened to look out of his window and saw some blokes trying his car doors so called the rozzers, who turned up silently but mob handedly. Sadly they missed the scrotes, though.
Wednesday, they dropped leaflets through everyone's doors to warn everyone and remind them to keep stuff secure.
Wednesday night/Thursday morning, according to another neighbour who works on a farm so sets off early, the police were out patrolling in numbers at 4am.
Last night, the police helicopter was up at 3am and rumour has it they caught the bastards. Waiting for confirmation.
Good response, I thought.
The politics of failure have failed. We must make them work again.
