Let’s be safe and nice to all this Christmas

With Christmas fast approaching we’re reminding people to enjoy themselves safely and lawfully by being ‘safe and nice to all’.

We’ve launched our annual crime prevention campaign Operation SANTA and will be offering advice and safety tips throughout December in a bid to keep our communities safe and well this Christmas.

Dyfed Powys is a safe place with low crime, but during the festive celebrations it can be easy to forget to take the sensible precautions we usually take.

Throughout December we will be offering advice and top tips on how to stay safe with a different theme for each week:

  1. Shopping – how to avoid becoming a victim of crime shopping locally or online
  2. Partying – how to make sure you enjoy a Christmas party without getting into trouble
  3. Caring – highlighting how we can all care for different parts of our communities including the elderly, students, those suffering domestic abuse and even our neighbours
  4. Protecting – what simple things you can do to protect your homes, vehicles and valuables

You can also expect to see your local officers out and about on the streets as we increase our patrols to reassure people and help prevent crime and anti-social behaviour.

For more top crime prevention tips this Christmas visit our website www.dyfed-powys.police.uk or follow us on twitter @DyfedPowys and @ (ADD NPT TWITTER ACCOUNT).

Summary:

wk2 Op Santa

Details:

Tis the season to be jolly but Dyfed Powys Police is asking revellers to also know your limits and drink sensibly.

Everyone likes to enjoy themselves at Christmas, but each year police deal with a minority of revellers who don’t know when to stop. This can often lead to problems such as anti-social behaviour and crime including violent crime, domestic abuse and drink driving offences.

We don’t want to spoil people’s enjoyment at this time of year, but we ask that revellers consider the effects that excessive drinking can have on themselves and others and drink within their limits. Alcohol can make people behave in ways they never normally would.

Visit our Operation Santa web page for advice on how to make your night out one to remember for the right reasons!

 

Summary:

Gofalu

Details:

This week’s theme for Operation Santa is ‘Caring’.

So we are focussing on what advice and support we can give you and other groups or individuals in our communities who may need a bit of extra help and support over Christmas.

 

Our top tips are:

  • Don’t drink and drive – think about the consequences. Are you really safe to drive the following morning?
  • Be aware that an increase in domestic abuse is common this time of year. If you or someone you know is suffering domestic abuse don’t suffer in silence – report it today.
  • Be careful when driving home at Christmas. Be mindful of the wintry conditions and slow down.
  • Think about how your behaviour may impact on your neighbours – keep the noise down, show respect and consideration
  • Keep an eye out for elderly or vulnerable relatives or neighbours – give them the support they need.
  • Students – make sure your property is secure.
  • Farmers – keep yourselves and your animals safe and secure

Join Our Pegasus Scheme

 

Police in Carmarthen are urging people with a disability or illness that makes it difficult to communicate to join the Dyfed Powys Police Pegasus Scheme.

 

It is a service designed to make it easier for people who live and / or work in the Dyfed Powys Police area to contact Dyfed Powys Police quickly and easily on both the 101 and 999 numbers.

 

Application forms for the scheme are available from Carmarthen Neighbourhood Policing Team. Approach them when out and about or make a request through the police Communication Centre on 101 or through the advice section of our website www.dyfed-powys.police.uk.

 

Registering for the scheme is free. Once a person is registered and their selected password is approved the individual is a member of the scheme.

 

PCSO Nicola Waters 8195 said: “The Pegasus Schemeis really simple. The caller will only have to say ‘Pegasus’ and give their password to be identified by our call handlers. They will then have access to that person’s information and how best to communicate with that person.”

 

Pegasus users are also provided with a Pegasus key fob to carry, so that if they are approached by Officers/PCSOs and find it difficult to communicate with them they can show their card, provide their password to allow you access to their details.

 

For more information about the Pegasus Scheme ask your local Neighbourhood Policing Team, visit www.dyfed-powys.police.uk or call 101.

Diogelwch Eich Metel

Details:

Metal theft is an issue blighting the whole of the UK due to the money that can be made from selling metal items on.

There are things you can do to protect metal in your homes, vehicles and businesses from theft.

You can protect your home by:

  • Keeping gates locked and installing strong fences
  • Being aware of any objects that could be used to access your roof like water butts, wheelie bins and garden furniture - if possible these should be stored away from the building.
  • Putting outside lighting on a dusk till dawn circuit.
  • Being a good neighbour and encouraging others in your neighbourhood to be vigilant.

You can protect businesses and public buildings by:

  • Regularly reviewing the perimeter fencing and gates security - checking for holes and weak spots which could allow people access
  • Not leaving any scrap materials lying around which could tempt thieves.
  • Using a forensic solution to mark any metal - warning signs saying forensic marking has been used should be displayed.
  • Installing CCTV with adequate monitoring and recording. Visible warning signs should be displayed as a deterrent to potential offenders.

For more advice call 101 to speak to your Neighbourhood Policing Team or visit www.metaltheftwales.org.uk.

Heddlu Caerfyrddin yn annog preswylwyr i ddiogelu eu cartrefi yn erbyn byrgleriaid.

Carmarthen Police encourages residents to secure their homes against burglars.

 

Even though Carmarthen is a very safe area to live, it doesn’t stop thieves trying their luck.

 

Most domestic burglaries are committed by opportunist thieves, who pick a house that looks unoccupied, has little or no obvious security and where they think they will not be seen.  Two out of ten burglaries do not even have to use force, they get in through an open door or window. 

 

PCSO Nicola Waters said “Although there isn’t a big problem with domestic burglary in our area, there have been incidents in the Carmarthen area over the last few weeks.

 

If you take the time to assess the security of your home, follow some useful advice and take positive action, you can reduce the risk of becoming a victim”

 

Reduce the risk of burglary happening to you by making sure you have taken these simple precautions:-

 

  • Fit strong locks to your doors and windows and make sure you always keep them fully locked
  • Try to make your home look occupied if you are away from your property overnight.  Invest in a plug-in timer for lamps and radios
  • Consider installing a burglar alarm.  A burglar alarm fitted properly can deter a burglar and the sights of an alarm box outside your home may be enough to discourage them
  • Prevent intruders getting to the back and sides of your home by installing strong fencing or gates
  • Never leave a spare key in a convenient hiding place such as under the doormat, in a flowerpot or behind a loose brick - thieves know to look there first
  • If you are replacing or fitting new doors and windows, get ones that are certified to British Standard BS7950 (windows) and PAS 24-1 (doors)
  • Fit a door chain or bar and door viewer (spy-hole) and use them every time someone calls.

PCSO Waters added “Taking some simple precautions to protect yourself and your property against crime can not only make you feel safer, it can also reduce your chances of becoming a victim of crime”.

 

Join or start a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme in your area by contacting your local Neighbourhood Policing Team who will assist you with the information you require.

Parents – support us in keeping anti-social behaviour to a minimum by making sure you know where your children are and what they’re doing.

Levels of anti-social behaviour (ASB) in Dyfed Powys are relatively low, but during school holidays we see a rise in reports of anti-social behaviour (ASB) by young people.

Most are well-behaved, but a minority engage in underage drinking, use bad language, can be noisy and intimidate residents by hanging around in large groups.

Young people who engage in ASB could receive a criminal record that could affect them for life.

We will be patrolling known hotspots throughout the holiday period to keep ASB to a minimum.

Your support in this matter would be most appreciated.

Report ASB to 101 or here.

Calling all bike owners! Make sure you know how to keep your bike safe and prevent it from being stolen.

More than half of all bike thefts take place from the owner’s property.

When you have spent hundreds of pounds on a new bike, you want peace of mind it is safe or, in the worst case, covered against theft of loss.

Follow these simple steps to secure their bikes:

  • Keep your bike in a secure garage or shed
  • Always lock your bike using a good quality bicycle lock/chain, even if you are only leaving it for a couple of minutes
  • Lock your bike to something that cannot be moved and through the frame
  • Make a note of bike’s serial number, make and model and take a photograph
  • Keep your bike rides private - ensure privacy settings are turned on if you use a GPS app or device to record your bike rides to prevent leading criminals to your bike
  • Register your bike on www.immobilise.com; (This is a free service and only takes a few minutes to do. It will assist the police in returning recovered bikes to their rightful owners).

 

If you witness a bike theft or have any information about bike thefts, please contact Dyfed Powys Police on 101. In an emergency, contact Police on 999.

We are urging holidaymakers not to leave any valuables on display in their vehicles to minimise the risks of losing items to opportunist thieves.

When people go on holiday it’s easy to relax and become a little complacent, some people forget to carry out simple security measures that they would normally carry out when they’re at home.

We are urging holidaymakers not to give thieves the opportunity to steal by being vigilant and making sure they protect their property.

  • Always activate the security system on your vehicle

  • Don't leave valuables such as handbags, wallets or any other items on display (Leaving even low value items on display makes your vehicle more vulnerable to attack from thieves)
  • Remove all valuables from sight including any gadget holders
  • Secure valuables and other items in the boot
  • Close all windows and lock all doors and the boot

  • Be wary of where you park your car

As the weather gets warmer and people start to work in their garden sheds, we usually see an increase in the number of reported thefts from gardens and sheds.

Theft of bikes, mowers, tools and garden equipment from sheds is one of the most common crimes in the Dyfed Powys Police area.

Help us prevent that by following some simple steps to become more property security conscious.  

To improve security and to reduce the chance of become a victim of crime follow these crime prevention top tips:

 

  • Record all model and serial numbers of the equipment ie lawn mowers, bicycles, tools, etc on immobilise.com

  • Install security lighting in the garden

  • Ensure fences/gates are kept in good condition

  • Ensure good quality locks are fitted to the shed and are securely locked.

  • Fit locks to windows and use them

  • Property mark all the tools and equipment

  • To avoid thieves hiding behind hedges/shrubs – keep them cut back

  • Have prickly hedges around the perimeter to make accessibility to the garden difficult

  • Consider installing an alarm to the shed

  • Consider having gravel paths and drives – this discourages thieves from the garden as gravel makes a noise

  • Lock ladders to a post or wall – they could be used for easy access to the home.

Summary:

• Yr Heddlu’n rhoi cyngor diogelwch i garafanwyr

Details:

Thieves are known to target caravans for spare parts or to sell on and will also target valuables left inside.

 

Caravans are more difficult to secure than your home or car but there are measures you can take to help deter thieves.

 

Here are some top safety tips for caravaners:

 

  • Leave curtains open so criminals can clearly see that there are no valuables to steal

 

  • Most new, modern mobile homes come equipped with the kind of window and door locks that you will find on residential properties, but these can only be effective if they are used

 

  • Install intruder alarms - these have proven to be an effective deterrent to scare off offenders

 

  • Choose your site with care and give some consideration to the security features it offers as well as its facilities.

 

  • If possible, look for sites that display the ‘Secure by Design’ logo, indicating that the site meets with stringent security standards and that measures such as CCTV and private security patrols have been implemented.

 

  • Consider the use of intelligent property marking systems such as Smartwater DNA which can link your holiday home to your main domestic residence. 

 

  • Immobilise your caravan even when you stop only briefly.

 

To report a theft from a caravan or any suspicious activity around a caravan call 101, or in an emergency 999.

Details:

Bogus callers prey on the most vulnerable people in our communities attempting to con them out of vast amounts of money for unnecessary and overpriced work.

Sometimes they pretend to be from reputable companies and sometimes they resort to distraction tactics.

Cold callers will phone or knock your door unannounced and try to sell you a product or service. Many are genuine but some can be scams.

Make sure you follow police advice on how to deal with unnanounced callers to keep yourself and your property safe:

  • Consider fitting a chain on the door – and always use it. Remember to keep the door chain on until you are sure your caller is genuine.
  • Do not let anyone into your home that you do not know or until you are completely satisfied that they are who they say they are.
  • Make sure the caller is genuine. Ask to see identification. If in doubt, telephone the company the caller says they work for. Don’t use a number on their card but look it up in the phone book.
