Poaching

Operation Galileo is in full process and is the Forces response to the annual issue of poachers. The area is a vast terrain and the challenge for specialized officers is to tactically pinpoint the hotspot locations where these poachers are committing cruel offences such as hare coursing. We are developing an intelligence picture of repeat offenders however it is your help that we require if we are to make a further difference. If you see a vehicle in a field that looks strange or a group of individuals on land with dogs then please telephone the Police. We may not get to all of these offenders however with the community’s help we can reduce the opportunities for poaching. If anyone would like any further information about our work in this area of crime then please contact your local policing team

We have had success in prosecuting individuals before. Remember wildlife needs to be respected and we know from speaking to rural communities that this is something that you want at the forefront of our agenda.             

 

Residential burglary – Four reported cases across both Wards last month, one included gaining entry to a garage and the remaining three involved “2 in 1” burglaries whereby vehicles were stolen from within.  Throughout January officers from the Community Policing Team will continue with high visibility patrols to deter such crimes. 

 

 

Vehicle crime  -  Nine reports of vehicle related crime across both wards last month, most of which involve damage to and interference with vehicles.  Throughout January officers from the Community Policing Team will continue with high visibility patrols to deter offences of vehicle crime.  

 

Criminal damage – One report of youth related criminal damage across Dale Ward during December involving male youth punching a window causing it to smash, The Ferry Inn, Station Road.  During January we will continue to patrol in a High Visibility manner to deter anti-social behaviour and provide support and reassurance to the public.

Crime Reduction Advice

In light of an increase in vehicle crime we would like to share the below vehicle security advice.  Unfortunately theft from cars and vans is quite a common crime.  In some cases vehicles are stolen as a result of a “2 in 1 burglary”. This term is used when there are two offences in one, for example when vehicle keys have been stolen in order for offenders to take a car from outside a property. (These crimes have usually been committed overnight and often the offenders have gained access to a house by forcing entry).

Below are some simple security measures that can be taken to help protect you and your livelihood.

•           Keep your car keys safe and out of sight, don’t leave them near an open window and if you are work, then ensure that you keep your keys with you at all times (don’t leave them in your vehicle/van).

•           Never hang your keys near to doors where they could be taken through a letterbox.

•           Never leave your house or car keys in an obvious place like a handbag or key cupboard.

•           If you’ve got a garage, use it and lock it!

•           Always keep your vehicle’s windows closed and the car locked at all times.

•           If your car/van doesn't have an alarm/immobilizer then consider getting one fitted.

•           Consider extra security such as a steering wheel lock. (Steering locks and gear level locks are often all that is needed to deter a thief as they simply don't want the hassle of breaking in and trying to get them undone.)

•           Never leave any property or personal documentation in your car or van on display, i.e. on car seats, in the foot wells or half hidden under a seat as it only takes criminals seconds to smash a window and grab something.

•           If you use a satnav or a dash camera, make sure you not only remove the device from view but also its cradle and don’t forget to wipe away any tell-tale sucker marks on the windscreen too.

            If you own a van and are able to so, then make sure that all stock and tools are removed overnight, consider parking it so that the rear and side doors are tight to walls, garage doors or other vehicles to hinder direct access and any physical attacks.

•           Security mark all your tools and equipment to make items uniquely identifiable and less attractive to a thief.  You can also register them on www.immobilise.com so that if they were ever stolen and then recovered at a later date they can easily be traced back to their owner.
