Over the past eight months, dozens of sheds and homes in West Malling, Leybourne and Ryarsh have been broken into.  And thousands of pounds worth of goods have been stolen.  Some people have been broken into twice. 

The response of Kent Police has been woeful.  No noticeable action has been taken to prevent the crimes or deter the criminals or bring those responsible to justice.  Residents have been reporting the crimes and capturing the offenders on CCTV.  Despite this, most people never see a police officer and the CCTV footage is rarely viewed.

As a result, the criminals are becoming brazen.  They are systemically targeting homes night after night with no fear of being caught.  

This situation is unacceptable. 

Honest, hard-working people who pay their taxes should expect to feel safe in their homes and protected by the Police. 

Kent Police must take immediate action, including:

* Visible night patrols

* Forensics sent to crime scenes

* All CCTV / footage reviewed

* An investigation to thoroughly review the evidence

* Advice and support for the affected communities

Simply issuing a template letter with a crime reference number stating, "there are no further enquiries we can make and this investigation has been closed" - without even taking the time to visit the crime scene, or speak to residents, or review CCTV footage - is unacceptable. 

We, the residents of West Malling, Leybourne, Ryarsh and the surrounding areas deserve better.

And by signing this petition, we call on Kent Police to take immediate action to deter this type of crime and bring the perpetrators to justice.
