|Following a recent burglary in Hillingdon, a message was circulated using OWL giving details of a vehicle stolen during the burglary. As a direct result of the message, a local resident was able to provide useful CCTV images, which helped police understand the time of the burglary and the direction of travel of the stolen car. This crucial information focused police action, leading to the recovery of the stolen vehicle and the arrest of three individuals.|
This incident underpins the benefit of OWL - getting information out promptly to encourage vigilant residents to share what they know, where possible.
