Your local policing team
Local policing teams are groups of officers dedicated to serving the community. Teams are made up of officers based in the area, supported by additional officers from the wider area.
Teams work closely with local authorities, organisations, partners and residents to decide policing priorities. This helps teams find long-term solutions to local problems.
During the school holidays we have seen an increase in the amount of youths within the Sacriston area. This in itself is not an issue. However a small handful have been involved in anti-social behaviour and criminal offences which has impacted the local community. some incidents involve youths running in front of traffic and throwing items such as eggs at cars.
In response to community concerns we have increased our patrols during key days and times in order to deter and prevent further issues. Anyone suspected of being involved in anti-social behaviour and/or criminal offences will be dealt with.
if you witness anything and wish to make us aware, you can do so by ringing 999/101 or by emailing one of your local officers.
Although we have not had any directly reported incidents, officers have been made aware of at least two persons going around the village trying door handles on properties, mainly throughout the night. These individuals are looking for insecure premise's.
Night shift officers have been made aware of the concerns and have since increased their patrols in the area. Both marked and unmarked police vehicles have been deployed.
We also ask members of the community to be extra vigilant and ensure that their property is locked and secure, even if you are home. Please ensure any valuables are out of sight and locked away. If you see anyone acting suspiciously then please contact us as soon as possible. Help us keep you and your property safe.
There are no meetings or event scheduled.
