Enjoy your fes­tive break and keep safe

Rutherglen Reformer - - Crime Beat -

stopped and ar­rested be­cause you are driv­ing un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol or drugs ei­ther straight af­ter your party or the next morn­ing.

Re­mem­ber for your safety, the safety of your loved ones who may be in the car with you and also for ev­ery­one else’s safety - you may not be fit to drive the morn­ing af­ter a Christ­mas party.

If in doubt seek al­ter­na­tive trans­port.

Some of you will only be too aware that kids th­ese days want all the lat­est gad­gets -so it won’t be sur­pris­ing to hear that smart phones and tablets are top of their Santa list. De­pend­ing upon if they have been “naughty or nice” and they are very lucky – then they may get their wish.

If this is the case, please en­cour­age and help them to reg­is­ter their new mo­biles, tablets, lap­tops and cam­eras at www. im­mo­bilise.com.

As a par­ent – please fa­mil­iarise your­self with your child’s new smart phone or tablet, and in par­tic­u­lar its pri­vacy set­tings.

Have a look at https://www. thinku­know.co.uk/ which has a very use­ful in­for­ma­tion sec­tion on us­ing parental con­trols.

Also, why would Santa bring them a lovely new bike with­out also giv­ing them a good qual­ity lock? New bikes can also be reg­is­tered at www.BikeRegis­ter.com.

Fi­nally, I would like to ex­press my sin­cere thanks to the com­mu­ni­ties of Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang for their con­tin­ued sup­port and as­sis­tance.

Crime and dis­or­der has never been lower and your lo­cal polic­ing team could not have done this with­out your help and that of our part­ners

Please be as­sured that your lo­cal of­fi­cers will con­tinue to be out there on pa­trol to en­sure you enjoy the fes­tiv­i­ties. Re­mem­ber, should you re­quire any as­sis­tance please don’t hes­i­tate to speak to one of my of­fi­cers or to con­tact us via 101 or 999.

I wish ev­ery one of you an en­joy­able fes­tive break and please re­mem­ber to keep safe this Christ­mas. Pat O’Cal­laghan, Chief In­spec­tor, Area Com­man­der
