The residents of Strijp-S are sick and tired of it. Crime and vandalism in the area have increased significantly in recent months. Since January this year, the residents’ association has had 100 reports of vandalism and burglaries, mainly vandalism to cars and bicycle theft.
The police have confirmed the increase in the number of car break-ins and bicycle thefts at Strijp-S. According to them, this is due to the fact that there are more and more events in the area, attracting more and more visitors.
The residents’ association has set up a Facebook group and all incidents are recorded there. According to the residents, the police do not take sufficient action and brush the problem aside. There are now plans to form a neighborhood watch team and the residents hope the police will support this.
