In his November update, Inspector Ian McKinnon says, "A positive month, a general reduction in crime across the areas. We will continue to offer crime prevention advice where we think it is necessary, particularly in areas that may be at risk, whilst promoting messages about home security and the importance of lights at this time of year.
Over the next three weeks we will have dedicated patrols on some evenings patrolling streets and issuing crime prevention leaflets to try and reinforce the message. We are also supporting this with additional dedicated crime patrols at other times our analysis suggests are 'risk' periods.
Together with the fantastic support we already receive from our communities in relation to identifying possible thieves, we can hopefully ensure that everyone has a Merry Christmas (except maybe the thieves). As the last report for 2016, can I just say that I genuinely appreciate the support my team receives from the Community Councils, Partners, Councillors and members of the public and I look forward to continuing this throughout 2017.
The local policing team are based at Whinhill and request that if any suspicious activity is seen they are contacted, either as an emergency on 999 or on the Police Scotland Service Centre at 101.
