Reporting Incidents and Suspicious Circumstances -   We always recommend that if you have a crime to report or if you see something that is suspicious, you call straight away on 101 or 999 as required. The quicker the information is received by our communication call handlers the better chance we have to check the details in 'real time' allowing the most suitable response to be given.

Mobile Police Surgeries. We have organised some police surgeries around the area over the few weeks. Please come and have a chat. We will have crime prevention advice for vehicle crime and burglaries. We also have a very limited number of free shed / van bulkhead alarms.
