Dear Ward Member,
No doubt, most of you will have heard of Met Trace, the initiative launched by the Police and MOPAC several years ago under which they issued free Smart Water kits to homes in areas considered a high risk for burglary across Bromley and Greater London. The good news is it’s back and, even better, this time the Met is giving kits free only to Neighbourhood Watch members regardless of where they live in the Borough.
At this time, we are aware of two promotional events open to all Coordinators and their Watch members. The first will take place at The Hobbit Suite, The Warren, Croydon Road, Bromley, BR2 7AL from 1200hrs until 1800hrs on Wednesday, 14 August. Officers present will have 500 kits to hand out on a first come first served basis. To be eligible for a free Smart Water kit, the recipient must be a Neighbourhood Watch member living In Bromley. They must produce proof of I.D (Passport/Driving Licence) and also Proof of Address (Council Tax bill for the address the kit will be used at). These are the Met’s requirements, not ours, so, if you or any of your Watch members want a free kit, be sure to comply.
Please note, at this event, Neighbourhood Watch members from Croydon will also be attending since this is a BCU wide promotion.
The second promotion will be at our Crime Summit to be held at Bromley Civic Centre between 0930hrs and 1300hrs on Saturday, 14 September. This time, only Bromley Coordinators and Watch members will have been invited but the Police advise again it’s on a first come first served basis and the same stringent conditions will be applied. Come early so as not to be disappointed.
There may be further events throughout the year and we shall advise you of these as soon as we hear. The Police also plan to conduct door to door visits across the area but we have no details where these will take place.
