Rural Crime: Crickhowell

There has been a series of thefts and opportunist burglaries in our rural communities, in particular in the areas of Crickhowell, Talybont and , quads, gardening tools and bikes are amongst some of the property being targeted.

Around your farm yard, in your barns and outbuildings there is valuable equipment that will appeal to thieves - e.g. power tools, quad bikes, machinery and diesel. Isolated buildings,machinery and livestock present the greatest risk.

 

Please don’t make it easy for the criminals travelling into the area:-

  • Security mark your property / recording the serial numbers of electrical items and gardening equipment. 

  • Store valuable equipment in a secure building behind a strong locked door, or use a metal cage and keep it locked when unattended.

  • Ensure you don’t leave vehicle keys in the vehicle or in an obvious place

  • Know your neighbours and recognise suspicious individuals – and report it to the Police as soon as possible

     

Heightened patrols are being undertaken, however, being such a rural area brings unique challenges for the force so we encourage that anyone considered acting suspiciously or out of place in the area to contact police by ringing 101 as soon as possible.

 

Contact Billy Dunne / Lee Garrett for to arrange a visit where we will give you relevant crime prevention advice to help secure your property

Community Messaging System

 

Community Messaging’ (DPCM), Dyfed-Powys Police has rolled out ‘Community Messaging’ (DPCM), a system which enables the service to issue fast time messages to its communities and enables residents to play a part in policing.

 

Chief Superintendent Aled Davies said,

“Community Messaging’ complements our existing methods of speaking directly with our communities. Residents signing up to DPCM using just their e-mail address will receive messages straight into their inbox – messages which are relevant to their community, their lifestyle and interests.”

To sign up, visit www.dyfed-powys.police.uk and click on the DPCM link (www.dpcm.co.uk). Once in the page, individuals will be asked to choose the kind of information they want to receive, as well as answer a few questions specific to where they live.

Messages received through DPCM will be relevant to the information residents provide when they sign up and could include specific crime prevention advice, direct appeals based on local incidents and information about community events near to them. DCPM will be especially useful in support of the ‘Watch’ schemes (Farm Watch, Horse Watch, Boat Watch, Neighbourhood Watch) – where very specific information needs to be communicated to a distinct community very quickly.

Chief Supt Davies added,

“We know that social media is not favoured by everybody and many people don’t want to, or are unable to attend community meetings. DPCM is a way in which we can engage with our communities directly, in a more personal way than some of the other mechanisms we currently use. It also enables us to quickly rally eyes on the ground and expand our ‘policing’ capacity within communities. DPCM will also allow individuals to take on an information gathering role for their family or community, because users can request updates relating to more than one area if they wish.”

DCPM replaces the old OWL and ringmaster systems.  OWL users will shortly be receiving a message asking them to update their information on DCPM, thereby ensuring they will receive relevant messages in the future.

Local officers and staff will be there to speak to visitors about any concerns they may have around crime in the town. There will also be officers from specialist police departments including the dog section, firearms, Specials on horses, as well as other partner agencies and emergency services.

Chief Inspector Rhiannon Ivens said: “We’re looking forward to opening our doors to visitors for Brecon Police Station’s Open Day on Saturday, July 7.

“Holding an open day will provide an informal way for people to come and meet officers and staff, get a behind the scenes look at policing and build positive relationships with their local policing team.

 “It will allow visitors to meet their local police team, get some crime prevention advice and have a say on where we should be focussing our future patrols in the town.

 “I do hope the Brecon community will support this event and I look forward to meeting lots of new faces on Saturday, July 7.”

Refreshments will be available throughout the day.
