Dear Reader,

Although it was a reasonably quiet Christmas for the area, house breaks and vehicle crime have started to pop up again over the last couple of days/nights. The majority of residential breaks have taken place while the occupant or occupants have been away on holiday. Incidents with vehicle crime has seen offenders breaking into vehicles to steal tools and other valuable items.

As a force, all we ask is that you constantly remain vigilant. Although the force strive to give their best day in day out, the part you play as well as the other residents in the area is absolutely crucial to us. The public's help has been fantastic over the current year, this has resulted in a great number of offenders being identified and arrested. We ask that you always make sure your property is secured to the best it can be. We also ask that where possible, tools and other valuable items are removed from vehicles.

If you see anything suspicious, or suspect something doesn't feel right, please call us. Call 999 in an emergency or 101 for non emergency incidents. Although sometimes we may not get back to you straight away, the calls you make to us could prove vital. Furthermore, if you have also been a witness to an incident and feel like you hold crucial information, again please call via 101 or use the webchat via the force website.
