Speeding concerns

The local neighbourhood police team across the New year will be conducting operations along with the wider police family, to calm the speed of road users.

Several roads continuously are mentioned to the police as being fast roads above their current speed limit. These roads will be targetted as hot spots for speedsters and appropriate fines and ways of dealing with offenders will be utilized.

Perturbing Shoplifters

Shoplifting is still a high priority for police and there are operations planned to help infiltrate individuals who thieve.

The colder months will see a spike in shoplifting as individuals will be more dependant on food to keep warm and alcohol.

The police urge the public to keep a keen eye on activity and to alert local shop keepers and the police as and when an incident occurs.

999 is to be called should an offender be still on scene.
