Operation Nemesis

posted 4 Oct 2011, 14:29 by Blackwater & Hawley NHW
Saturday the 1st October 2011 saw the launch of Hampshire Constabulary's Operation Nemesis. Operation Nemesis is a force-wide campaign targetting burglars operating within Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. You may recall our last Operation Nemesis which had very good results, hopefully with help from residents we will have another good response this year and be able to put a few more ne'er-do-wells behind bars.

The whole force as one team will tackle burglary as a priority over the next three months, ACC/TO Laura Nicholson said, “Operation Nemesis will enable a planned and coordinated approach across the force to tackling burglary and other acquisitive crime involving prolific offenders or where it is becoming a force wide problem. A strong presence in every neighbourhood across the two counties by all parts of the Constabulary will deliver prevention and enforcement activity We will work with partners to target prolific offenders and tackle the causes of their criminal behaviour reducing the likelihood of them reoffending. This operation is about coordination and working together as one force and fully utilising the resources we have available to us.”

Please could I ask you to all work with us over this operational period and ask your members to be extra vigilant as to what is happening in their roads. ANY suspicious activity should be called in to the Police on the 101 or 0845 045 45 45 numbers and please ask your members and co-ordinators to state that they are in Neighbourhood Watch. As always should any of your members have information that they wish to impart anonymously then they can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
