Local Policing Priorities

Date agreed: 26 November 2018

Action

Police are reminding caravan owners to secure their caravans and remove all valuables when they lock up for the winter.In previous years there have been instances where caravans have been broken into and items stolen. October to January is a particularly quiet period when tourists and residents are away from Caravan sites, the burglars find it easy to access during these times. To support the public, the Neighbourhood Policing Teams have flyers and posters available for Caravan and site owners to display in the windows to highlight that there are no valuables kept inside and will also assist with additional crime prevention advice.Improving security can make a real difference in deterring burglars: Ensure external equipment, bicycles and childrens toys are not left outside Close and lock all access doors Fit window and Door locks easily visible locks may deter some thieves Remember to remove expensive items away from windows and keep them out-of-sight Mark your property with Ultra Violet Pens. There are currently a number of innovative liquid forensic coding systems also available which are a great deterrent.

Aberystwyth Neighbourhood Policing Team are reminding homeowners to protect their heating oil supplies to prevent any theft from storage tanks.Be aware of your oil levels and check frequently.Where possible keep your levels low and the same when refilling. Speak to your supplier with regards to a more frequent but smaller delivery If you have a plastic tank, consider erecting fencing around the tank with one end hinged and locked for filling purposes.
