It appears a break in has taken place on B20 yesterday during day light.

I WISH THIS WAS UNTRUE, BUT,  if not any one please advise.

After speaking to residents, the conclusion is that car numbers are taken down by the scum when parked at your properties.

Some one is then sitting in a car, or cars in the car parks when they see the car away from the property, and by phone inform the scum that the owners are out, so break in now.

If the owners start to come back to their car, another phone call is made to inform the scum to get out.

SO LETS EVERYONE WATCH FOR THE SCUM SITTING IN A CAR IN THE CAR PARKS, OR ANY ONE JUST SITTING IN A CAR, TAKE DOWN THE CAR NUMBER, TAKE A PHOTO, HAVE NO HESITATION IN CONTACTING THE POLICE AT ONCE, IF ITS A MISTAKE, AND IT COULD UPSET SOME ONE, NO PROBLEM, AT LEAST IT SHOWS RESIDENTS ARE WATCHING, AND POLICE ATTENDING. IT COULD STOP A BREAK IN. 

If any one has any other ideas, lets hear them, we cannot get any one to help us, so we need to help ourselves.

Police patrols are zero, council not interested in doing the lights, even if its a few light bulbs needed.

2.9 million euros awarded to Camposol, I wonder how much has melted away already.

880 thousand euros for the roads, all gone quiet, 500 thousand euros promised for the bridge to be sorted, now all of a sudden, council say its not their problem, its private, so down to the residents.

If any of these facts are wrong, happy to be corrected.

Then we hear they are going to build a crazy golf, and bar on C sector on spare land, do we really need this above lights and security?

Hi

       Couple of points the Street Lighting will probably be a bigger issue than just replacing the lamps normally after a prolonged period trying to strike up a duff lamp the control gear within the Street Light fitting will burn out and need replacing which is very expensive.

Unfortunately due to these scum people need to invest in security systems such as cameras & alarms and replace there door locks with the latest snap locks and install window security bolts then at the very least this may slow down the scum & hopefully catch them on camera.

My understanding of the proposed crazy golf on Sector C is that’s its a private enterprise and has nothing do with the council and that land was dedicated for sports use only & was originally going to be a football pitch so I guess you can class crazy golf as a sports activity.

Phil.

Nice one Phil.

Just so sad that we all cannot feel safe without alarms, lights, and special locks.

Understand now about the crazy golf, but seen the 38 tonne lorries bringing in massive containers, all of which is further making damage to the C section roads, and the bridge, will the private concern pay for the damage? I doubt it.

Totally agree it is sad that we all need extra security measures but with Camposol not having regular Police patrols it’s the only option and the damage to the bridge is a major concern for everybody living on Sectors C & D which includes us the council need to put a weight limit on the bridge and then repair the damage asap.

Street lights.

Not quite as simple as just changing a few bulbs I am afraid.

Lots of the cabling on the whole of Camposol has been pinched over the years.

Hi Phil, some time ago a great suggestion was put forward that each resident on Camposol pay 3-5 Euros a month for our own 24 hour police patrol, and a small police station.

If we had just 2000 residents sign up, for 5 Euros a month that would give us 10.000 Euros each month, a good amount to give us police cover and a station.

However, many poured scorn on this, and said 5 Euros was a lot of money, amazing, and others just gave sick comments and a great deal of bad words to the proposer of the idea.

Just think, our own police station, and 24 hour cover, but they would rather be broken into, or be afraid of getting caught over the drink and drive limit, how sad.

Yes this was pointed out to us, so we had a professional check on our 7 lamp posts.

All power was present, a few bulbs went on and of, and the report stated just change the old Sodium bulbs for new LED, and all should be ok.

But as its classed as a private road, the council refuse to change the bulbs.

So, as per a private road on D, we have got together, and will purchase large solar flood lights, and put them up, CRA say thats fine,  as if the council will not help, go for it.

Yes I remember that and we’d happily pay €5 per month but unfortunately as you said there was a lot of negative comments then the same people moan on Facebook about lack of support you can’t win with people like that.

Bang on Phil.

Heard a good bit of advise today, not only scan the car park when you go out, but if you walk into a bar or restaurant, watch for some one who seems to get straight on the mobile, or walks outside and gets on the mobile, could be the scums contact watching you.

Certainly if some one gets on the mobile when you leave, some thing could be wrong,

On entering, and leaving have a good look around, certainly if the mobile does not ring, but some one needs to use it all of a sudden.

Get a photo of the culprit.

We all need to get on top of the scum wrecking lives, and they need to be caught, its every ones job to make Camposol safe, not just the few.

I am certain some residents clearly know who is doing all the break ins, but do not want to get involved, well my advise to them is stand up and be counted, tell some one, tip the police of, have some bottle, it could be you next.

I’ve thought for a long time that these scum probably live among us on Camposol and by what you’ve found out it’s looking moré likely.
