Local Policing Priorities

Local area: Bury Port

Date agreed: 31 January 2020

Action

Urban gangs are operating in Llanelli, where drug dealing gangs are befriending vulnerable people and taking over their homes, people are being exploited and asked to carry drugs.  These gangs are using violence and intimidation to take control of a local area to increase their drug dealing enterprise. 

In order to address this we are asking members of the public to call 101 or 999 to report any drug activity in the neighbourhood.  We are also engaging with schools and colleges cascading relevant information onto staff on how to spot any signs.  Drug intelligence is being gathered with a view to carrying out warrants.

High visibility patrols will be continued throughout the patch to gather further information to tackle drug activity by engaging with members of the public and business’ within the area and focusing on hotspot areas.

For help and advice regarding additions please refer to The Wales Drug and Alcohol Helpline – 0808 808 2234.

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.

Know where your children are?

Details:

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.
