We have a busy month ahead of us coming into May. On Thursday 10th May 2018, we will have a table at the Camposol Fiesta Golf Day, at the Golf Club, Camposol C. We will be there to give out information, leaflets, contact details etc for crime-related matters. This is a big step forward for us and was one of our original objectives; to try and reach people who may not be on social media. Please pop a long and say hello to our team of volunteers.
On Monday 14th May 2018, I have been invited onto Ruma Jordan’s show on Costa Calida International Radio to talk about the Camposol Security Group. It will also give me an opportunity to promote the following day’s event which is a Security Group presentation with a guest speaker. This will also be at the Golf Club and commence at 11.30am. The guest speaker is the Commandant of the Local Police. He will give a short presentation and then answer some pre-prepared questions. An interpreter will be present. Please support this initiative and come along and hear for yourself first-hand what the Commandant has to say.
During the past month, there have been five burglaries on Camposol reported to us. These are as follows:
2 on Camposol B, committed during the day.
2 on Camposol D, exact times not known, but again locks had been snapped/damaged to afford entry.
The final offence took place on Camposol D and was what is commonly known as a ‘hook and cane’ burglary. Offenders force open a window (protected by rejas) and then use a long stick with a hook on it to grab door keys and then gain entry using them. Among other items stolen was a grey Nissan Qashqai hire car.
In view of the above, we recommend that all keys, both house and car, are removed from sight at night time; maybe put them in a drawer in your bedroom. Also consider fitting door alarms. These are easily fitted, cost less than a couple of euros and will emit an ear piercing noise, should the door be opened.
Another important piece of advice is to get to know your neighbours. Let them know if you are going out for the day, or if you are going away. That way, if they hear any noise they will instantly know something is wrong. We all need to look after ourselves and our neighbours. Let’s get the message out – that if you intend to commit crime on Camposol we will be watching you!!!
Finally I would like to thank again all the volunteers who give up their time to make Camposol a safer place.
