Police - Safer Neighbourhoods Team
Please contact Warwickshire Police on 101 if you have any information regarding any incidents or suspicious activities. You may also speak to Southam SNT on 01926 684984 or Crime Stoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting the incident number that the crime relates to.
It has been brought to the team's attention that Crime and Incidents are not being reported due to members of the community feeling as though nothing can be done. If Crime or Incidents are not reported, then the Police can do nothing as we are not aware. We actively encourage any member of the community to report incidents or crime to the Police no matter how small they may feel it is, you do not know that your incident can sometimes form part of a bigger picture somewhere else in the Area or County or Country.
101 is the non-emergency telephone number for Warwickshire Police and has now been running since October 2011, making it easier for members of the public to report crime and disorder and make general enquiries. 101, which is live in several force areas across the country, is an easy to remember number which goes directly to the local control room no matter where you are dialling from. It takes away the need to search for the local force number and should reduce the volume of unneccessary 999 calls.
The number can be used to report if a car has been stolen or property has been damaged or vandalised, to report a minor traffic collision, to provide information about crime or to contact a local policing team. 101 does not replace 999, which should still be used in an emergency, when a crime is in progress, there is a danger to life or when violence is being used or threatened. This number will cost 15 pence from landlines and mobile phones for the entire call, no matter how long the call or what time of day it is.
Crimes and Incidents can also be reported direct to Warwickshire Direct, which is now based at Southam Library as the Front Office is now closed at the Police Station although the team still operate from there.
General Enquiries for the team can be made at Warwickshire Direct, to a team member at a Community Surgery or on patrol, or by phone or email. Team number: 01926 684984 (a voicemail facility is available on this number, DO NOT report crime or incidents to this number)
Team email: Southam.firstname.lastname@example.org (DO NOT report crime or incidents to this email)
Or we can be contacted via the Team Website at: http://www.safer-neighbourhoods.co.uk/your-neighbourhood/stratford-district/southam/ - this site contains information about the team, and dates on our calendar for events such as the Community Surgery's in the different areas.
