Local Notices

Summary:

Bogus and cold callers are known to prey on vulnerable people in our communities attempting to con them out of money. These types of callers can make people, particularly the elderly, feel unsafe and this is not acceptable.

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.

Police in Pembroke Dock 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.

PCSO 8183 JONES of Dyfed Powys Police, said: “Unfortunately not everyone who knocks unannounced at your door has a genuine reason for being there. Bogus callers are criminals and we encourage residents to beware and know what to do if they do receive a visit from a bogus caller with making sure you ask for ID a priority, along with fitting and using a door chain. If in doubt, keep them out.”

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.
  • Ask a neighbour or friend to visit while the caller is there
  • Never leave a key hidden outside the home (e.g. under a doormat)
  • If you are selling your home, don’t show people around on your own. Ask your estate agent to send a representative with anyone who wants to view your house.

Call 101 to report a suspected bogus caller or rogue trader. Call 999 if they become aggressive or to report a distraction burglary.

Summary:

During the summer, reports of ASB among young people rise in the Dyfed Powys Police Force area. Police want to remind parents/guardians to be vigilant and know where their children are during the school holidays in order to minimise ASB.

Details:

Police ask parents – ‘Do you know where your children are during the school holidays?’

Police in Pembrokeshire are asking parents ‘Do you know where your children are during the school holidays?’

Over the school holidays Dyfed Powys Police traditionally sees a rise in the number of calls reporting anti-social behaviour (ASB) by young people.

Reports of ASB include young people drinking alcohol, using bad language, creating excessive noise and intimidating residents by hanging around in large groups.

PCSO 8101 Armstrong of Dyfed Powys Police, said: “Levels of ASB in the Dyfed Powys area are on the whole relatively low, but the number of calls we receive about such incidents increases over the summer holiday period and it usually involves young people.

“Most young people are well-behaved, but what concerns us is the number of calls we get about a minority who engage in underage drinking and the effects this has on them and their behaviour.

“Throughout the school holidays police and partner agencies will carry out work to educate parents and young people about the dangers of alcohol misuse. We will also speak with retailers to prevent young people from being served alcohol in the first place.

 “While the vast majority of parents behave responsibly, we’re reminding all parents during the school holidays to be aware of where their children are and what they are doing. Young people who engage in ASB are likely to receive a criminal record that could affect them for their whole life.”

If you’re a victim of, or you’ve witnessed ASB you should contact Dyfed Powys Police on 101; or anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. In an emergency contact Police on 999. For more information about Dyfed Powys Police visit www.dyfed-powys.police.uk.

Summary:

Bike theft is a persistent problem and the recovery rate of stolen bicycles is relatively low. Dyfed Powys Police has adopted a pre-emptive approach, warning and advising bicycle owners on how to safely secure their property.

Details:

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 Pembroke Dock 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.

Police remind homeowners to secure their homes

Dyfed Powys Police in the Pembroke 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.

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.
