Crime Preven­tion Ad­vice

Po­lice have re­ceived some good calls from mem­bers of the com­mu­nity re­cently re­port­ing sus­pi­cious be­hav­iour and of­fend­ing. The po­lice re­port­ing sys­tem works great when it’s used cor­rectly which al­lows po­lice to de­ploy of­fi­cers when and where they’re needed.

How­ever the sys­tem doesn’t work well when peo­ple choose to re­port is­sues on so­cial me­dia plat­forms like Face­book then ex­press anger and frus­tra­tion that po­lice aren’t do­ing any­thing about it. If you need po­lice or want to make a re­port you must con­tact us through the proper chan­nels so that cases can be recorded cor­rectly and pri­ori­tised. See be­low.
