Current Priorities Pewsey and surrounding areas.


Local Crimes 


Having checked through the previous months incidents for your area, I’m very pleased to report that I have nothing of interest to report that has not already been mentioned in this newsletter.  We urge you to be vigilant checking your home security doors and windows are secured as well as any outbuildings. Please report via 101 any suspicious activity or cold callers in your areas.  


Now that the brighter weather is well on its way please bear in mind when leaving your vehicles in remote areas whilst out walking make sure you do not leave any valuables anywhere in your vehicles and secure all doors and windows. 


We continue to patrol around rural areas and are currently still experiencing ongoing problems with hare coursing and would therefore ask that any vehicles seen acting suspiciously especially with lurcher’s on board could be reported to the police as advised in last month’s report.

Theft from motor vehicles 

Whilst predominantly a seasonal issue more prevalent in the warmer and lighter months, this area has seen a number of vehicles broken into at beauty spots. This has also spread to our villages. Again, intelligence work is ongoing to attempt to identify local offenders. Further work is being undertaken to improve signage and to highlight the possibility of offences being committed when parked in these locations. 


Dwelling and non-dwelling burglaries. 

Over 160 targeted patrols have occurred since this niche priority was created on the 26th October 2016 (at the commencement of CPT). In the last two months, we have had eleven burglaries, three dwelling and eight non-dwellings. This compares with twenty-six burglaries in the previous two months to 26th October 2016 to this area. This is most pleasing considering the expanse of area covered by the Pewsey villages. Wiltshire Police will be continuing to limit the number of offences by pro-active policing and ongoing policing operations in these areas. 

Community intelligence is crucial for us to achieve this aim so please continue to report incidents, information and any concerns. 

Hare coursing and poaching. 

130+ targeted patrols completed within this investigation, again to areas where we have experienced coursing activity. One of the more active coursers has been issued with a Community Protection Warning notice in relation to his behaviour. Should he ignore the warning, we would then look to deal with him much more robustly. 

Community Consultations. 

Bouverie Hall, first Tuesday of each month.
