Local priorities

Current priorities (March 2018):

  1. Shed/Garage burglaries - This type of crime is common at this time of year. Access is normally gained where security is weak either through unlocked doors or where security is not sufficient. The Team will concentrate on increasing high visibility patrols and advising residents where possible. 
  2. Telephone Fraud / Scams - This is a common theme across the county. Education is key and this is an on-going theme of our public engagement. We are also working closely with Corfe Mullen Home Watch to target vulnerable residents with high visibility patrols and informing residents of these types of incidents and awareness of things to look out for.
  3. Rogue traders - Unfortunately we have also seen an increase in reports of rogue traders and doorstep sellers in Corfe Mullen. Rogue traders are traders that knock on your door and offer you a service, but overcharge you for poor, unnecessary or incomplete work. The offenders offer services including power washing driveways, fixing uneven/broken driveways, roof work, cutting down trees, tending gardens - to name a few.

Resolved priorities and actions taken:

  1. Anti-social behaviour (ASB) in Corfe Mullen – We have been working closely with the Corfe Mullen Youth Trust conducting joint patrols in the village during the recent months and engaging with different groups of young people. We are pleased to report that incidents of ASB have reduced.
  2. Shed/garage burglaries - The Team are visiting victims of this type of crime, giving advice in regards to crime prevention to stop them from being a repeat victim. We are also informing the public at events such as surgeries and public events of the importance of home and garden security.
  3. Telephone fraud/scams - We have been working closely with Home Watch visiting residents that are at risk of this type of crime. We are ensuring that residents are aware of things to look out for and passing on information about recent scams to vulnerable friends and relatives
