Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
We have had an increase in reports of theft of handbags and purses, specifically in the area of Springfield Street, victims have been distracted whilst shopping or returning to their car. These offences have mainly occurred between 1000-1600hrs during the week. They have targeted female shoppers, it is likely that offenders have travelled from out of the district to commit these offences.
Issued: January 2019
What we are doing:We are currently liaising with local stores on Springfield Street and looking at different ways to promote sensible security options and make potential victims aware of this offence. We will carry out uniformed and plain clothed patrols at the most relevant times. There are also a number of covert operations planned that are linked to this offence, further updates to follow.
