Attempted Burglary – Kenilworth

Please be aware that between 00.15hrs and 00.30hrs on Wednesday 7 April 2021 offenders attempted to force a conservatory door to gain entry into a property at Denewood Way, Kenilworth. The householder was alerted and the offenders made off without gaining entry.

This is incident 157 of 7 April 2021

This attempted burglary, trying to use patio doors as a means to commit burglary, highlights the benefit of fitting anti-snap locks to all sealed unit doors as this makes it very difficult for criminals to gain entry.

Warwickshire’s Kenilworth is switched on about crime prevention & detection…

KENILWORTH WATCH works alongside Warwickshire Police’s Safer Neighbourhood Team for Kenilworth and provides 24/7 crime alerts for the town. The Watch system, a modern internet, email, and social media-based service, was featured on BBC One on Easter Monday and repeated on BBC Two earlier this morning (6 April).

As a direct result of the broadcasts, over 60 more residents have joined Kenilworth Watch in the past 24 hours. Some 1,260 homes in and around Kenilworth are now part of Kenilworth Watch and crucially will receive up to date crime alerts 24/7.

A further five residents have joined the CCTV register that Kenilworth Watch also operates; this takes the number of Kenilworth households registered with CCTV to around sixty.

A Kenilworth Watch spokesperson said

“We are pleased that so many members of our town are so community-minded and are part of Kenilworth Watch. With such a high and growing number of households signed up for our free service, we can ensure that we help keep the town safe, deter crime and support Warwickshire Police. The CCTV register is a cracking example of how we can help our police by reducing the time they spend investigating crime and getting them closer to a result”.

For anyone who has not seen the BBC broadcast here is a link to BBC iPlayer and the Frontline Fightback programme. The piece about Kenilworth starts at around 28 minutes into the programme.

Kenilworth to feature on BBC One’s Frontline Fightback

KENILWORTH is due to be featured in the TV programme Frontline Fightback on BBC One at 11am on Easter Monday 5 April 2021. 

The programme, which is about how police and communities are fighting back against crime and criminals, will feature Kenilworth Watch’s CCTV Register scheme which was developed by and given to the town by neighbouring Finham Neighbourhood Watch, Coventry.

With around 1,100 people across Kenilworth now signed up to Kenilworth Watch, the group which works closely with Warwickshire Police’s Safer Neighbourhood Team for Kenilworth, is one of the largest neighbourhood crime alert notification schemes in the County.
