Local Policing Priorities

Date agreed: 29 June 2018

Action

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.

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.

Local Notices

Details:

The concept is simple, register your details with Dyfed-Powys Police for free and you will be provided with a number of serial numbered zip ties. Put one on each gate that fronts onto a public roadway and it will assist Police to contact you if we need to, in cases of:

 

  • Damage to your fencing, gates or hedges from vehicles involved in Road Traffic Collisions

 

  • Stock Control, to advise if any of yours have escaped or if someone else’s stock has been temporarily secured in your field,

 

  • Incidents of trespass, if persons are stopped and spoken to in relation to being on your land for any reasons, be it shooting, fishing or any other suspicious circumstances.

 

  • To support the Farm Watch scheme, by updating you of thefts, or suspicious activities occurring in the locality.

 

Your details will remain confidential, and the Serial Numbers will be unique to your property. We will require your Name, Address, Phone number(s) and Email address (if you have one) to register.

Simply contact us on 101 at Newtown Police Station, to register.
