As you can see we have been hit quite badly in the rural area with thefts from buildings, yards, garages and vehicles. Please be vigilant and ensure items of value are locked away or secure. Also be aware of any suspicious vehicles and pass any information of descriptions or registration numbers to us on 101 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. police.uk
We will be looking to carryout Rural Operations over the next coming months so any information you can give us will assist us in where we target, times, days and trends to ensure we get the best out of our patrols.
