Rugby Police urge motorcycle owners to be vigilant
Rugby Police urge motorcycle owners to be vigilant Rugby Police are urging motorcycle owners to take extra care of their motorbikes following a spate of thefts of motorcycles across the borough in recent months.

Since December last year 42 motorcycles have been stolen from the Rugby area. During the last six weeks, motorcycles have been stolen from Murray Rd., Lawford Bridge Close, Queensferry Close, Rounds Gardens, Mellish Road and at Princethorpe.

Speaking about the thefts, Inspector Paul Judson from Rugby Police said: "In recent months we have seen a relatively high number of motorcycles of all sizes stolen from locations across the borough. Bikes have been stolen from off the street and from within locked garages. I would encourage motorcycle owners to think about the security of their vehicles and to try to make things more difficult for the thieves, by applying good quality locks and where possible garaging the bikes. We are working with our partners in Neighbourhood Watch and Community Safety Partnership to highlight this issue and to raise awareness of the extra security measures that are available to bike owners."
Inspector Judson also said: "I would like to remind people to be vigilant and to report any suspicious activity around motorbikes to police immediately".

Anyone with information about who may be involved in any of the motorbike thefts should please contact Rugby Police on 01926 415000.

Information can also be passed on to police anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Prison, me? No way! - Bilton School
On Friday 17th June 2011 PCSO's attended Bilton School to help out with Prison, me? no way!

Year 9 was treated to a display from the Police, Ambulance and Fire crew attending a mock scene of a car crash involving some drama students from the school, this was to show and inform pupils how the emergency services work together and what they do at the scene of an RTC, also the consequences and procedures they would go through should they commit a criminal act.

This was a hard-hitting day, educating the youngsters, aged 14yrs, what they would expect to happen should they be involved in a situation like the mock crash that occured after some young people stole a car.
The students experienced what is involved from the moment of arrest and taken to Police custody to going through to the Court system and the moment of sentencing. The exercise gave the opportunity for the pupils to ask questions and watch hard - hitting real-life storys of real victims of crime.

The youngsters enjoyed the day and got into the spirit of it all whilst becoming more informed should they make the wrong choices in life where crime is concerned.
