POLICE

Police attended and gave a report which showed that in February there had been reports of 1 x domestic burglary, 1 x non-specific theft.Police have also warned that other nearby villages have suffered high volumes of crime including daytime burglaries where suspects are believed to be using a silver Jaguar car with 09/10 plates. The advice is to ensure you use your burglar alarm when your house is unoccupied.

Cllr Angus had received data from the SIDs in the village and asked the police if they wanted it. They said that traffic officers checked Wetherby Road, but that there were not enough traffic officers. It was suggested that Cllr Angus would collate the data and let the police know the times when speeding was most prevalent so that they could concentrate their resources at these times.
