Crime Trend to be aware of - In the past we have had distraction type thefts take place in car parks, especially near to shops. The distraction is normally carried out by two people - the first offender distracts the driver by producing a map while asking for directions. The second offender then reaches into the car and steals valuables, usually a handbag or wallet. The Bank cards taken are then quickly used at cashpoints etc to get cash. If the person being distracted has just come out of a shop having used the cards, the PIN number has probably already been noted by the offenders who will stand watching the card readers. This type of crime has recently occurred just out of the Alcester areas, but it is worth bearing in mind in case the offenders travel onto the Alcester patch.

Schools Out - The Schools are now on a two week break. Unfortunately in the past we have had burglary and damage type offences occur at our schools while they are on 'holiday'. If you see any suspicious activity on or near to school premises, please call the police on 101 to report. In an emergency, please use 999. Sometimes the 101 system is busy, but please stay on the line and your call will be answered.
