Police in Saundersfoot 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.

 

Sergeant Geraint Lewis, 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.

As the weather gets warmer and people start to work in their garden sheds, we usually see an increase in the number of reported thefts from gardens and sheds across the force.

Help us prevent that by following some simple steps to become more property security conscious.  

PC Craig Thomas, of Tenby Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “Theft of bikes, mowers, tools and garden equipment from sheds is one of the most common crimes in the Dyfed Powys Police area.

“This is a great concern to the police because it is clear that shed thefts can be prevented if a reasonable level of security is put in place.

“We are encouraging people to install good quality locks to all garden sheds and also to property mark their equipment using UV marker pens, paint or engraving.”

To improve security and to reduce the chance of become a victim of crime follow these crime prevention top tips:

 

  • Record all model and serial numbers of the equipment ie lawn mowers, bicycles, tools, etc on immobilise.com
  • Install security lighting in the garden
  • Ensure fences/gates are kept in good condition
  • Ensure good quality locks are fitted to the shed and are securely locked.
  • Fit locks to windows and use them
  • Property mark all the tools and equipment
  • To avoid thieves hiding behind hedges/shrubs – keep them cut back
  • Have prickly hedges around the perimeter to make accessibility to the garden difficult
  • Consider installing an alarm to the shed
  • Consider having gravel paths and drives – this discourages thieves from the garden as gravel makes a noise
  • Lock ladders to a post or wall – they could be used for easy access to the home.

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.

PCSO Rachel Adams, of Dyfed Powys Police, 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.

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 Saundersfoot 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 Moffatt, 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.

We are urging holidaymakers not to give thieves the opportunity to steal by being vigilant and making sure they take simple security measures.

Police advise holidaymakers to follow these simple steps to secure belongings left in a vehicle:

  • Always activate the security system on your vehicle
  • Secure valuables and other items in the boot
  • Close all windows and lock all doors and the boot
  • Be wary of where you park your car

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 Rachel Adams, 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.
