Rogue Trader Week

Monday the 17th of October marks the start of Rogue Trader Week 2011, which is designed to raise public awareness of doorstep crime and increase reassurance, thereby reducing the fear of crime. You will be aware that there are considerable links between certain rogue traders, builders, PVCu fitters, tarmacadam layers and gardeners who look for business on the doorstep. Rogue traders and distraction burglars travel extensively throughout the country using a variety of vehicles and are very reliant on the road networks.

Launch of ‘Fire Safety and Crime Reduction Bikes’ project

Bridgend's South Wales police have teamed up with South Wales Fire and Rescue Service (SWFRS) to launch a brand new partnership initiative. The aim of the project is to improve fire safety and to monitor areas or sites that may not normally be easily accessible during standard patrols. It will also be an opportunity for officers to visit local businesses in the Bridgend area and make business owners aware of the risks that certain stocks they carry can be targeted by arsonists.
