Local Policing Priorities

Date agreed: 13 October 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.

31 January 2015

Members of the public to be extra vigilant and report any suspicious activity within their areas.

Date agreed: 23 March 2018

Action

Dyfed-Powys police covers one of the most rural police areas in England and Wales.

We regularly receive calls from farmers, landowners and members of the public reporting farm animals being chased by dogs and in the most serious of cases where sheep in particular have been savaged and killed by dogs or having to be put down by a veterinary surgeon.

Dog owners

If you are walking your dog in the countryside

  • Do not allow your dog to enter a field on its’ own and keep it under your control at all times.

  • Keep your dog on a leaf when crossing through fields that contain livestock. However don’t hang onto your dog if you are threatened by cattle, let it go as the cattle will chase the dog.

  • Stick to public right of ways.

     

    When at home

  • Make sure you know where your dog is at all times.

  • Ensure that your property is secure and that your dog cannot escape day or night.

 

If you know your dog has previously chased or attack sheep then take responsible measures to prevent it happening again.

 

Farmers/Landowners/Livestock owners

  • Dial 101 to report incidents of livestock worrying to Dyfed-Powys Police.

  • Take photographs of injuries to the livestock.

  • If you are able to, secure the dog until the Police arrive so that evidence can be gathered to identify the owner of the dog.

  • Put signs up on gateways alerting dog walkers to the presence of livestock in the fields.

  • If sufficient evidence is available the Police can prosecute the dog owner on your behalf.

  • Compensation for damage caused is a civil matter between you and the dog owner.

  • If you shoot a dog using the criteria under the Animals Act 1971 then ensure you notify the Police within 48 hours.

Summary:

Barnwch y Gwasanaeth Rydych Chi’n Derbyn Wrth Heddlu Dyfed-Powys

Details:

A new online tool, which allows the public to feedback on the service they receive from Dyfed Powys Police, has been launched, see it here https://www.rateyourlocalservice.co.uk/dyfedpowyspolice

Called Rate your Local Police, the system enables people to log on and feedback on any interaction they’ve had with the Force based on a five star rating – similar to TripAdvisor. There is also space for the public to provide additional comments and information.

Dyfed Powys Police are one of three Forces piloting this new tool and are the only force in Wales taking part.

The system has been created to enhance public confidence in policing, help identify any areas for improvement and provide another way for people to get in touch. It also allows the Force to easily respond to feedback.

Rate your Local Police has been designed specifically for leaving feedback and is not a forum for people to make formal complaints. These still have to be submitted via the website or in writing.

Anyone who has recently dealt with the police can rate the service they’ve received at https://www.rateyourlocalservice.co.uk/dyfedpowyspolice/

Chief Constable Simon Prince said: “Dyfed Powys Police wanted to provide the public with a quick and simple way of giving honest feedback about the service they receive.
 
“If you’ve had good service from someone in the Force or would like to let us know about something you think we can improve, we want to hear from you.”

Details:

During the Halloween and Bonfire celebrations, officers are increasing patrols in their communities to reassure people and to enable us to react quickly to anyone who uses Halloween or bonfire night as an excuse to commit anti-social behaviour.

 

Some of our residents do worry when trick or treaters knock the door. While we do not want to spoil people’s enjoyment, we also don’t want it to get out of hand and cause people to feel threatened in their own home.

 

Trick or treating advice includes:

• Always go with an adult

• Only to go to houses where you or your friends know the people and know you are welcome

• Only go to houses displaying the ‘trick or treaters’ welcome poster

• Don’t talk to strangers

• Don’t enter the house always stay on the doorstep

Details:

At this time of year we tend to receive reports of thefts of heating oil or fuel.

We’ve out together some top tips on how you can prevent your oil or fuel from being taken.

Taking these measures will help make life more difficult for would-be-thieves and also ensures your tank stays topped-up.

  • Be aware of your oil levels and check frequently
  • Where possible keep your levels low
  • Speak to your supplier about having 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. The fencing should be fixed to solid posts and should be set off the tank approximately 12 inches on all sides. The same should be fixed to the top as well
  • If you have a steel tank, then fit a quality anti-cut close-shackled padlock
  • Make sure your outside lights work and are set to detect movement.

If you see anyone going out with drums and pipes to steal fuel call us on 101 or give Crimestoppers a call anonymously on 0800 555 111.
