The main message is to enjoy fireworks from a safe distance, and always at an organised event, and if trick or treating, only calling on those who want to take part.

PCSO 8099 Hefyn Davies said: “Trick or treating at Halloween is a tradition that children enjoy and something that is growing in popularity. It’s important that children have fun but without causing concern for others.

“We’re carrying out a lot of work in the lead up to Halloween and Bonfire Night to make sure everyone is aware of how to have fun, but stay safe, to prevent anti-social behaviour and other criminal activity at this time of year.

“We’re also making sure young people understand there are consequences to bad behaviour. We will issue anti-social behaviour warnings and make arrests where necessary.”

NPT have attended a under age event and patrolled all areas of Narberth dealing with many underage drinkers who were returned home to their parents. Unfortunately due to the age and state of some youngsters the under age event was called to a halt half way through. A meeting was then convened between the Queens Hall and NPT and it was decided not to run these sort of events in the future.

 

07 February 2019

NPT have already persuaded the Queens Hall and parents to cancel one event as it was widely advertised on Social Media making it a public event with many hundreds of youngsters saying they were going to attend. This would have led to a major public order issue and one that would be dificult to manage.

Details:

Police in Narberth are reminding caravaners to keep their property secure this Spring to minimise the risk of becoming a victim of crime.

 

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.

 

PCSO Scott Jones, of Dyfed Powys Police, said:“First and foremost, people using their caravans this summer should consider ways of storing valuables out of sight, so they’re not on display to criminals.

 

“When the caravan is unoccupied and stored out of season, remember to remove all valuable portable property. Remove it completely from the site and take it home rather than storing it in sheds adjacent to the caravan.”

Here are more top safety tips for caravaners from Dyfed Powys Police:

 

  • 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.

Dyfed Powys Police are asking residents to help in their fight against modern day slavery during a week of activity in October. Our officers will be out in communities speaking to residents, business owners, factory managers and people working at our ports about modern day slavery. They will be explaining what to look out for and how people can help us to stop this exploitation taking place.

 

It is a hidden crime. It is difficult to detect but there are signs to look out for, they include; people who have limited family contact; distrust authority; have no friends; appear underfed, uncared for and withdrawn; are disorientated and avoid eye contact. It may be easier to spot houses where victims could be held as the curtains may always be closed or have a reflective coating on them, there may even be locks or bars on the windows, CCTV cameras installed, the letterbox sealed and restricted access to the front and back doors.

  • 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.

Would be shoplifters warned that plain clothes officers are out and about

Would-be shoplifters are being warned that Dyfed Powys Police have plain clothes officers working In South Pembrokshire in Narberth, Kilgetty and Tenby in the run up to Christmas.

Blending in with other shoppers, they’ll be on the lookout for criminals over the coming weeks.

“This is a warning to criminals that just because they can’t spot a police officer doesn’t mean there isn’t one close by,” said PCSO 8099 Hefyn Davies. “Plain clothes officers will be out regularly during this busy shopping period, and they’ll be looking out for pickpockets, purse thieves and shoplifters.

Shoppers and store owners should feel reassured by this undercover presence and we hope it persuades the criminals to stay away.”

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.

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.

We are reminding homeowners to secure their homes when they go on holiday this summer.

 

More than a third of all burglaries are crimes of opportunity, where the burglar enters through unlocked doors or windows.

 

Follow these simple steps to make your property more secure when leaving it unoccupied for any period of time:

•Don’t close your curtains - in daytime this shows the house is empty

•Use automatic timer switches to turn your lights on when it’s dark

•Leave a radio (on a talk program rather than music)

•Cancel any milk or newspaper deliveries

•Uncollected mail is a sign that you are away. Royal Mail’s Keepsafe service will keep your mail for up to two months while you’re away

•Hide important documents and valuable items, or leave them with other trusted family members or in a bank

•Do not put your home address on the outside of your luggage when you are travelling to your holiday destination

•Make sure that you’ve locked all doors and windows and, if you have a burglar alarm, ensure it is set

•Make arrangements with trusted family members or friends to regularly check the property until they return from holiday

•Don’t advertise the fact that you’re going on holiday on social media.

Below you will find information on protecting your car when it is parked

If you have a garage, use it.

Remember to lock it. More than half of all car thefts occur in the vicinity of the home.

When away from home, of if you do not have a garage, always try to park in a well-lit, open location.

Thieves target car parks. A quarter of all recorded car crime happens in car parks.

When parking in a public car park look for one that is well supervised, with restricted entry and exit points, good lighting and security cameras. Avoid dark corners.

Watch out for strangers showing interest in your car or your neighbour's car. They may be thinking about stealing it, rather than admiring it! If they look suspicious call the police straight away.

Help us beat car thieves...

If you are ever unfortunate enough to become a victim of a car criminal, the cost and inconvenience of replacing a broken window or a bent doorframe on your vehicle is often far more expensive than the contents that they may have stolen.

Police urge cyclists to secure their bikes

Dyfed Powys Police in Pembrokeshire are encouraging cyclists to get up to speed with the latest safety tips to secure their bikes.

Many of us own a bike and it’s important people know how to keep them safe to minimise the risks of losing their property to opportunist thieves.More than half of all bike thefts take place from the owner’s property.

The Narberth Neighbourhood Policing Team said: "While bike thefts can’t be stopped, cyclists can take precautions to secure their bike - whether at home, work or on holiday - to minimise the chances of becoming a victim of this crime. 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."

Police advise cyclists to 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. For more information about Dyfed Powys Police visit www.dyfed-powys.police.uk.

MAWWFRS urge public to be vigilant following reports of scam phone calls selling smoke alarms.

Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service were recently made aware of a scam phone call made to a female resident in Pembrokeshire.

She received a phone call from a male who informed her that he had received her contact details from her energy company. He proceeded to ask if she had smoke alarms installed, which she didn’t.

He then told her that she was in breach of government regulations for not having alarms and that she could be fined for this. The scammer then offered her a special price on having a fire safety system installed in her kitchen for £80, payable over the telephone from her credit card.

Thankfully on this occasion, the resident questioned him and did not give him details of her card. He hung up. We have since received reports that he has phoned the resident for a second time.

Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service urges the public to be vigilant of such offers and requests for money, be they by phone, post, email or door step callers, and report any suspicions that they may have to the Citizens Advice Consumer Services on 03454 040506.

MAWWFRS provides a free of charge home fire safety service and will install home smoke alarms free of charge. To arrange a home fire safety check by the Fire Service, please phone 0800 169 1234 or visit www.mawwfire.gov.uk for further information.

Scams can take many forms and are disguised through various methods. Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service, North Wales Fire and Rescue Service and South Wales Fire and Rescue Service have been made aware of scams targeting households and businesses. Some scammers will even make reference that they are endorsed by a particular Fire and Rescue Service.

Karen Jones, Head of Community Safety said,

Scams can be targeted against anyone and the consequences on the victims can be extremely serious, not only can they lose out financially but there can also an impact on their health and well-being.

Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service are working with Trading Standards colleagues to raise awareness of scams and improve the safety of our communities.

The Fire and Rescue Service does recommend that all homes have working smoke alarms but the home fire safety service we offer is free and we do not charge for any of the equipment we provide.

Contact 0800 169 1234 or visit our website www.mawwfire.gov.uk for further information and advice on home safety.

If anyone has any concerns or suspicions about requests for money or personal information made through the post, telephone, e-mail or by callers they can contact the Citizens Advice Consumer Services (CACS) 03454 040506 or contact their local Trading Standards department.

The campaign, entitled #EnjoyDPP, offers practical advice to help people enjoy the towns, beaches, mountains and events in the four counties.

Police will be working closely with partner agencies who provide specialist assistance to keep people as safe as possible this summer. #EnjoyDPP is about giving people the safety advice that could prevent them from requiring police assistance this summer.

Chief Superintendent Claire Parmenter said: “Dyfed-Powys is home to a variety of tourist attractions and hosts locally and nationally renowned events which bring a huge boost in population over the summer months.

“We are very lucky to live and work in a place that people want to visit and we welcome visitors to the area to come and enjoy what is on offer.

“The influx of visitors combined with the diversity of our patch brings challenges for us as a police force, so this summer we are offering some simple safety advice to help people enjoy our unique region.”

Enjoy Our Beaches

RNLI’s Respect the Water campaign promotes a key piece of advice for people who find themselves unexpectedly in cold water. The charity says that a high proportion of people who drown off the UK’s coast are likely to have died after experiencing cold water shock. The campaign focuses on the simple skills people need to save a life. Here is the advice:

1. If you find yourself unexpectedly in the water – float for 60-90 seconds to increase your chances of survival. That period of time will allow the effects of cold water shock to pass and they you can take the relevant next step.

2. If you see someone else in trouble in the water – call 999 or 112 and ask for the Coastguard.

Visit www.respectthewater.com for more information.

Be aware of the tide times when you are visiting the beach. Visit: www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/tide-times for local timetables.

Enjoy Our Towns

Anti-social behaviour rises over the summer months and can cause distress to local communities. Police officers can direct people to leave an identified area if their behaviour is considered unacceptable, and confiscate items that are contributing to anti-social behaviour. Neighbourhood Policing Teams will be on patrol as usual in towns throughout the summer, to help everyone enjoy themselves safely and considerately.

Enjoy Our Mountains

Follow Brecon Mountain Rescue’s advice to safely enjoy the hills and mountains in the Force’s area:

  • Plan before you set out;

  • Carry plenty of water;

  • Take food with you;

  • Bring a map and compass. Know how to use them;

  • Monitor the conditions constantly;

  • Turn back if you are uncertain.

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. 

Police in Narberth are warning homeowners and relatives of elderly and vulnerable people to be aware that bogus and cold callers are out there and to advise of some simple steps people can take to protect themselves. 

Top tips on how to beat the bogus or cold caller:

 •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.

 •Don’t let the caller stop you doing these things by saying he or she is in a hurry. A genuine caller won’t mind waiting outside with the door closed while you ring.

 •If you are blind, partially sighted, or have difficulty moving about, you can arrange to have your meters read at an agreed time by a named person. When they call, the meter reader will give their name or an agreed password. If you are worried ring the police.

Police remind homeowners to secure their homes

Dyfed Powys Police in the Narberth area are reminding homeowners to secure their homes

More than a third of all burglaries are crimes of opportunity, where the burglar enters through unlocked doors or windows. Police are advising homeowners of a number of simple steps they can take to make their property more secure when leaving it unoccupied for any period of time.

PCSO 8019 Dave Henry said: “Residents need to secure their homes against potential intruders. Lock and secure your home at all times. If you leave your home insecure you could make your home insurance policy invalid and end up out of pocket.

“A recent trend is the 2-in-1 burglary, which is where thieves break into a house and snatch the keys to vehicles parked on the drive. The thieves usually target high value and luxury vehicles, including 4x4s.

“If you have a garage or outbuilding, please use it and lock your car away when not in use. If thieves can't see your car, they can't steal it. Use other security devices such as steering or wheel locks and if you don't have a garage, consider fitting sturdy gates to your driveway or a security post. You could also consider fitting a tracking device to your vehicle.

“Inside your home, don't leave your car keys on view or placed near windows, doors or letter boxes or cat-flaps where thieves can see them. Recently, keys have been taken from kitchen worktops, tables and hooks on walls. Make sure you hide your keys away so any would-be thief cannot find them.”

Following these simple steps will lower the risk of a burglary:

  • Don’t close your curtains - in daytime this shows the house is empty
  • Use automatic timer switches to turn your lights on when it’s dark
  • Leave a radio (on a talk program rather than music)
  • Cancel any milk or newspaper deliveries
  • Uncollected mail is a sign that you are away. Royal Mail’s Keepsafe service will keep your mail for up to two months while you’re away
  • Hide important documents and valuable items, or leave them with other trusted family members or in a bank
  • Do not put your home address on the outside of your luggage when you are travelling to your holiday destination
  • Make sure that you’ve locked all doors and windows and, if you have a burglar alarm, ensure it is set
  • Make arrangements with trusted family members or friends to regularly check the property until they return from holiday.

To report a burglary call 101 or in an emergency 999.

Op Santa - Pauls Pledge - drink and violence will not be a tolerated mix

Details:

Police in Narberth are urging people to watch the sobering short film of Paul Pugh, a victim of alcohol-fuelled violence, prior to going on their Christmas night out.

The film, which starts with the 999 call made to emergency services after the attack, which occurred outside the Old Cross Inn in Ammanford, Carmarthenshire, forms part of the #PaulsPledge campaign.

#PaulsPledge was launched in Carmarthenshire in December 2014 and is now running throughout Dyfed-Powys. It aims to reduce alcohol-fuelled violence by showing the consequences of such behaviour.

Paul Pugh was left in a coma for two months following the unprovoked assault, on January 6, 2007, for which four men were jailed.

??

Despite the fact that he will never fully recover from injuries that left him having to learn how to walk and talk again, Paul is bravely using his experience to campaign against alcohol-fuelled violence.

??

Paul Pugh said: "This campaign is my way of doing something positive after what has happened. The more people I can share my story with and show the consequences of violence, the more chance there is of stopping this from happening to anyone else."

??

PCSO Dave Henry, of Narberth Police Station, said: "We hope that watching the #PaulsPledge film prior to people going on their Christmas night out will make people stop and think about the consequences of violence before lashing out.

Mental Health

Details:

THE DPJ FOUNDATION

The DPJ Foundation was set up in July 2016 following the death of Daniel Picton-Jones. The foundation aims to support people in rural communities with poor mental health, especially men in the agricultural sector. Agriculture carries one of the highest rates of suicide and with mental health being such a big problem across society the foundation aims to break down the stigma that surrounds mental health and provide support services for those in rural communities.

Farming is an excellent career and can provide huge benefits to those who work in the sector. However it is a career that comes with huge pressure, isolation and demand on a daily basis.

For more information on the Foundation and what support is availabel visit their website www.thedpjfoundation.co.uk

 

Mental Health

1 in 4 people will suffer with mental health problems in their lifetime, it is not an uncommon illness and one which we need to work together to tackle.

Mental health is our emotional, psychological and social well being. It effects how we feel, think and act. It determines how we relate to others, handle stress and make choices. It is important at every stage of life. There are lots of types of mental health ranging from the more common anxiety and depression to the less common schizophrenia and bipolar – plus many more. 16.7% of the population have had suicidal thoughts.

In 2014 6581 died by suicide in the UK – 1850 died on UK roads.

9 out of 10 people with mental health have suffered discrimination. It is important to remember mental health is treatable and prevention is key.

Agriculture carries the highest rate of suicide above any other occupation. Reasons for this are:

Agriculture is an isolated occupation.

Male dominated.

Traditional sector

Resistance towards seeking help.

Discrimination towards mental health.

Lack of insight and support available.

Constant change and uncertainty.

Self reliant.

Specialist – high pressure.

It’s a lifestyle not a job.The means are available for people in agriculture to commit suicide.
