Local Policing Priorities

Local area: Hay and Glasbury

Date agreed: 10 October 2016

Action

                Rural Crime: Hay and Glasbury

There has been a series of thefts and opportunist burglaries in our rural communities, in particular in the areas of Crickhowell, Talybont and Ystradgynllais, 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.

Visitors will be able to take a guided tour of the station’s custody suite and sit in a cell. There will be plenty of activities to keep children entertained including face painting, sports activities and police dress-up.

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.”
