Crime Prevention
Marking your property is a positive way to fight crime, it can act as a deterrent, it allows you to prove ownership and helps you to identify your property easily if it is offered for sale. Marking your property also provides a means for the police to identify stolen goods and return them to their owners.
There are a number of ways to mark your property including utilising visible markers such as permanent marker pens, waterproof paint, stencils, engraving and specialised overt marking kits which are available on the market.
You can also use invisible markers such as UV pens or specialised forensic kits such as Smartwater.
Smartwater have recently reduced their standard price for a home marking kit from £68 to £25 which is available to anyone.

Smartwater is currently working in partnership with West Mercia Police and is providing an ?offer? for residents to purchase a standard home marking kit for a discounted price of £19.95.

Any residents wishing to purchase Smartwater at this reduced price can do so by calling Smartwater on 0333 370 7797 and quoting “WDBC”.

Have your say on funding policing in Warwickshire

Police Precept Consultation 2018/19 and Council Tax Survey

Wednesday 13 Dec 2017



I have just spoken to Rugby council and can confirm that Black bin collection will now be next Tuesday (19th December) with the Blue bins. 


Their website is misleading, in that it suggests that  “All black bins will be collected on Wednesday the 20th”.  RBC inform me that the wording will need to be changed.

There have been a number of Binley Woods residents that have received scam calls from 0161 850 5790 claiming to be HMRC. They are very abusive and intimidating.

If you have a phone that shows your callers, do not answer, or if you do, just hang up.

Please pass this on to friends or residents that you know do not receive these alerts.
