Local Policing Priorities

Local area: Crickhowell Area

Date agreed: 08 March 2019

Action

Priority 1

Breconshire Neighbourhood Policing Team in line with concerns raised by our community have adopted “Scam Callers” as a priority for the forthcoming period.

Every year, millions of people in the UK are victims of scams. People of all ages can be scammed. Scams can have serious financial and emotional consequences for victims, and can lead to feelings of guilt, shame, embarrassment, fear, and anxiety.

Locally we have seen a large increase in “Scam Calls” with a number of people falling victim and experiencing financial loss. Unfortunately the scammers are targeting the most vulnerable in our community with the elderly being more susceptible.

Our aim is to:

  • Raise awareness locally of Scam Calls.
  • Provide advice and information on how to avoid them.
  • Know how to recognise a Scam Call and how to deal with it.
  • If you are a victim of Scam Callers how to get help.

Priority 2 Crickhowell Section

Speeding vehicles continues to be a subject that is raised regularly in our community engagement / PACT meetings.

As such we have designated the issue as a local priority.

To tackle the issue we will use a number of strategies. With the aid of the Response and Roads Policing Units our colleagues will patrol using both marked and unmarked vehicles dealing robustly with drink and drug drivers. They will seize vehicles from uninsured and un-licenced drivers along with un-taxed vehicles.

Running in parallel with this will be the Community Speed Watch Scheme.

A number of groups are already up and running in the area.

They consist of volunteers from within our community who want to take an active role and actually make a difference in that community. Those volunteers receive full training and are provided with all necessary equipment. They will work alongside the Neighbourhood Policing Team, Go Safe and Local Authorities to reduce instances of speeding vehicles in our community.

Anyone interested in becoming involved in the Community Speed Watch scheme should contact PCSO 8058 Billy Dunne on 101 or at Crickhowell police station using the 101 non-emergency telephone number or by email at billy.dunne@dyfed-powys.pnn.police.uk  for further information.

Updates
