Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary

I am Andy White and I am one of the Police Officers covering the Popley & Oakridge areas in Basingstoke.
Recently as seen elsewhere in the Town crime has been falling overall however we have seen an increase in Anti-Social behaviour particularly in relation to the current Covid 19 restrictions.
The majority of crimes being reported in our area continue to be thefts from motor vehicles. Please remember to remove any valuables from your car and make sure that it is locked if you are leaving it out in the street overnight.
There have also been continued thefts from outbuildings and sheds and now is a good time to check these buildings are secured to reduce this opportunistic crime.
Your local Officers continue to patrol our area on bikes and particular focus is being made on parks and open spaces at this time.
Do you know someone who is vulnerable and may need some extra help at this difficult time?
If so please direct them to our Community Hub which is located at Popley Fields Community Centre where they can get help with food shopping, prescription collections and welfare checks.
