|Priorities for Wiltshire East CPT|
|Updated on: 16/01/2019|
Across our area we have again seen a rise in the number of burglaries taking place. These are mainly involving people breaking into houses and stealing jewellery and car keys. Please take note of the following advice to improve the security of your homes, garages and sheds.
To improve the security in and around your home we are asking residents to remember the following advice:
|Priority 2||Purse Thefts|
Within the town centres of the 3 main towns that are covered by East CPT we have had an increase in the number of purse thefts. These have been occurring when people are in shops and are leaving their purses and wallets on the counter to pay and also when walking around town with the offenders taking them directly from bags. We are committed to not only reducing this but to also bring those that are identified as suspects to justice where possible. We are endeavouring to increase the foot patrol within the town centre of both uniformed and non uniformed staff in an effort to tackle this problem. Local PCSOs are also attending various places within the community where they are issuing those that want them with purse chains.
Please also take note of the following advice to keep your possessions safe during this busy shopping period.
As always, if you see anyone acting suspiciously then please call in and let us know.
