News, Local Events
Message from Police Scotland
Jordanhill area still appears to be targeted by house breakers and
other suspicious persons. We are asked by the local Police to be
vigilant and to please report any suspicious events or persons using
101, or 999 telephone numbers. Even if it turns out subsequently to have
been a false alarm. Our area is still the target for vandals and
anti-social behaviour, particularly the Jordanhill Campus area. There
should be extra Police activity in evidence over the coming weeks.
As some of you
will know to your cost, there has been a spate of thefts from houses and
garages in Jordanhill. Our Police Scotland contacts emphasise the need
for vigilance in noting suspicious events and particularly for ensuring
security of your premises. Thefts from garages are a particular issue.
We are warned also about fraud involving bogus workers who quote for
work to be done, accept payment then disappear. In some cases evidently
‘white vans’ have been implicated. Be on your guard! Jordanhill receives
regular police patrols, although they cannot be everywhere all the
time. Police Scotland emphasis the usefulness of 101 calls, despite
scepticism from some residents.
