Cambridgeshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner urges people to stay safe at Christmas

December 23rd, 2015

CAMBRIDGESHIRE Police and Crime Commissioner Sir Graham Bright has today (December 22nd) posted a Christmas message in which he urges people to stay safe.

The Commissioner’s message highlights the risk of burglary and reminds everyone that this time of year is when burglars increase activity so people should take extra care to keep their homes safely secured.

Sir Graham says: “Make sure you keep your windows closed, the doors locked and don’t leave the car on the drive with the key in. This will help you and obviously it will help us. In the meantime we are working hard behind the scenes to keep you safe – there are lots of concerns that people have and we will be doing everything we can to make sure you are protected.” 

Whilst officers will be working hard over the holidays to protect local residents, he urges people not to drink and drive and reminds them of the devastation often caused by resulting tragic accidents.

After three years in the role, Sir Graham takes the opportunity to celebrate what has been both a successful and challenging year for the police in Cambridgeshire: the county is one of only a handful that has not lost a single frontline officer; and the budget is balanced allowing the force to continue to protect people across the county.
