  • Police advice

Whether you store tools and equipment in a vehicle or outbuilding, it is worth marking them with something recognisable.

It's suggested that post codes are engraved or spray painted to make such items less attractive to offenders and if recovered by police are more likely to be returned to the rightful owner.

We are interested in hearing from residents of anything that you feel is suspicious, call 101 to bring it to our attention.
