Local priorities

Top 3 NPT Priorities for August 2018

Anti-social Behaviour (ASB) – Corfe Mullen Library

We have had an increase in reported anti-social behaviour around the area of Corfe Mullen Library in the past few months. This has included reports of youths congregating being a general nuisance, causing criminal damage and littering.

Scams

Unfortunately reports of telephone and online scams are increasing. The most recent scams we have received reports on are HMRC scams where the caller or emailer has been quite persistent on either gaining personal information or for you to send money that you ‘urgently owe’ them to a specific fake account they request. Please remember that HMRC, your bank and Dorset Police will never ask you for your personal details like this over the phone or via email.

Rogue Traders/Doorstep Crime

We have received reports from Corfe Mullen where rogue traders have attended addresses telling the homeowner something on their property needs work and insistent they can do this for them – this will often lead to over-charging for poor, unnecessary or incomplete work. The Team will work at informing residents of this type of crime and encourage reporting this either to Dorset Police, Trading Standards or Action Fraud.

 

Resolved priorities

Burglaries/Shed Breaks

Following burglaries in Corfe Mullen earlier this year, the Neighbourhood Policing Team have worked alongside Homewatch by canvassing the area with high visibility patrols informing residents of the incidents and advising ways in which they can improve their home security. The Team are promoting home security checks at surgeries and via social media and if this is something you’d be interested in, please email the team.

Rogue Traders/Doorstep Crime

Following an increase in rogue trader reports, the Neighbourhood Policing Team have again worked alongside Homewatch by canvassing the targeted areas with high visibility patrols informing residents of the incidents and advising how to deal with rogue traders and who to report this to. Unfortunately this type of crime still continues so we will endeavour to continue informing the public and helping where possible.

 

You said, we did

  • You said you were concerned about speeding along the main roads through Corfe Mullen
  • The Community Speedwatch Team have conducted regular speed checks in these areas throughout the Summer and will continue to do so.

 

  • You said littering has started to occur at the new skate park at Corfe Mullen
  • The team have attended the area when possible and spoken with youths responsible and ensured they picked up the rubbish and placed it all in the bins.
