Policing Priorties

From 1st June 2017 to 30th June 2017 the policing priorities for this area will be

The priority focuses on speeding across all villages with a focus on Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGV’s) speeding during the night time.

Please ensure your vehicles are locked and secure at all times and valuable items are not on show. Also please consider leaving lights on in your home during the dark nights to make it looks like your at home in order to deter any potential criminals from targeting your property.

Following an increase in shed and outbuilding burglary offences, rural officers will work with detectives and increase marked and unmarked patrols in an attempt to reduce crime, reassure the public and catch those responsible. We are extending Op Shield to the Lakes ward and continuing bike marking.

Speeding and parking issues remain a major priority for our rural communities. We will continue to use preventative and enforceable methods to improve the safety on our roads, deploying local officers and roads policing to problem areas.
