Yr Heddlu’n rhoi cyngor diogelwch i garafanwyr

Details:

Police in Tenby 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 spring 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.

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.

Sergeant Geraint Lewis 108, 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.

YMGYRCH SCEPTRE

Details:

Throughout the week PCSO’s will be out and about educating people and retailers surrounding the laws of selling, buying and carrying knives.

 

Tenby Police Station front desk is open throughout the summer and staff and officers are happy to receive any bladed weapons from people choose to surrender them.

Police remind homeowners to secure their homes

Dyfed Powys Police in the Tenby 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 8028 Andrew Griffiths 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.
