Priority

Theft from Motor Vehicles

The local Neighbourhood Police Team have received reports of a number of vehicles being broken into whilst parked in local beauty spot car-parks.

This police team have been liasing with other sections of Devon and Cornwall police, as well as other police forces, in order to combat rural car-crime.

Issued 25 May, 2018

Action taken

Update: 19 September 2018 - Police patrols increased

Due to an increase in Police to minimise theft, figures for this crime have come down over the Summer months compared to last year.

Many a patrol has been in action, to educate motorists on not leaving valuables visible in the car whilst it is left parked up unattended. 

There is a tendency for people of Devon and visitiors to feel that this area is free from crime and the likelihood of criminals causing us concern.

Unfortunately crime still does happen here, and the public need to be vigilant and heighten their awareness to this.

Priority

Youth Disorder

The local Neighbourhood Police team have been receiving reports of youth anti-social behaviour in and around the local area.

We are carrying out regular patrols and operations to monitor the problem areas and take action where appropriate.

If you witness any incidents of anti-social behaviour, and it is a matter of police concern please call us on 101 or 999 if yourself or someone is in imminent danger.

Update: 19 September 2018 - Summer Operation success.

Local Police have been dealing with an increase in anti-social behaviour in and around the town centre.

Police Officers in plain clothes have been monitoring potential troublemakers and their whereabouts, and also dealing with shoplifting and drug dealing, which all stem to heighten anti-social behaviour.

The warmer weather and school holidays has led to an increase in people out and about, which inevitably has brought it's own problems with it aswell.

The police have dealt with many incidents, and arrests have been made.
