Voice Your Concerns - a message from our local police

A mesage from our local police


Hello everyone,


We would like to make you aware of the new & exciting, enhanced feature added to our Sudbury SNT website page.


It is called: “Voice Your Concerns” (VYC).


It is an online polling function.


It will allow Londoners to select & vote, every month, for up to three issues of concern in their area.


The VYC search function is based on synonyms. So, a user cannot type any word or phrase into the search bar then select & vote for it. For example, while the search function does recognise “mugging” you cannot select that word. The search bar will give you the options of “Business robbery”, “Personal robbery” or “Theft from a person”. This list of synonyms is exhaustive, but the designers will not have been able to identify every possible issue. However they will be able to see what terms people are entering in the search bar, & they will add further concerns based on this data.


Once you have selected a concern or added a new one to the existing list, you can vote for the concerns.


Having voted, you will be taken to a page where you can see your votes & where you have the option to “Tell Us More”. After clicking through “Tell Us More”, you will be able to provide more detail about your concerns via an online form, such as where & when it is happening & who is involved.  You will also be able to enter your details so that if needs be, we the local Safer Neighbourhood Team can contact you to gain more detail. The words on the form have been carefully written so that the person submitting the concern should not automatically expect a response, even if you do enter full contact details.


Once the form is complete, you will be able to review & submit it.


Submitted forms will come through to our SNT mailbox, & will be checked every shift that we are on duty.


The website will record the results of previous months’ polls, that you & everyone else will be able to see.


Kind Regards


Sudbury Safer Neighbourhood Team

Bogus Callers


Bogus callers can sound believable. Make sure in your own mind that they are whom they claim to be by following these simple steps:


A] Think before you open the door - use your chain and spy hole or look out of the window to see if you recognise them.


B] If you are not expecting anyone and they do not have an appointment, do NOT let them in.  If they persist, call police on 999 immediately.


C] Beware of callers who attempt to distract you by claiming that they have seen something untoward in your garden or somewhere which may encourage you to leave your house - they may have an accomplice awaiting this distraction.


D] If you are not convinced of the identity of the caller, don't let them in.  Ask the caller to come back later and arrange for a friend, relative or neighbour to be present on their return or ask the caller to contact this person.


E] Treat every stranger with caution. If you are worried, dial 999 immediately and ask for the police.
