SNT Article 4

Received 27 January 2021.
Good Afternoon Folks,

It is now official Pc Max Beswick has started work within our safer neighbourhood team and we bid farewell to Pc Chris O’Donovan. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Pc O’Dononvan for all his hard work and for being a valued integral part of our team over the years. We wish them both the very best in their new roles.

For the next ten weeks, we will also have student officer Pc Ridyard working within our team. The aim is for him to learn about community policing and how the approach to it differs from response/patrol policing.

It has been a fairly busy couple of weeks with RTC’s and broken down vehicles due to the flooding, ice and snow. There has also been a few incidents in regards to dogs which I just want to give you a quick update on as I’m sure most of you will have seen it on social media.

Within a two day period, three separate reports of missing/stolen dogs were noted, two from the Leominster area and one from the Ledbury area. As sometimes happens this was blown up to a huge degree which put a lot of dog owners in unnecessary fear.

The good news is that two of the dogs were found within a short span of time and had evidently just gone off for a wander, as is often the way with animals. The third dog was indeed stolen (it’s still under investigation) but working alongside us (the safer neighbourhood team), the owners hard work and dedication paid off and the dog was returned to his rightful home. An excellent result!

We have seen a few incidents of theft at Aymestrey/Wigmore way, so please be extra vigilant when locking your cars/sheds and outbuildings.

Pc Beswick had a great start to his working week as he arrested a male who was trying to steal items from peoples sheds and gardens. The male had been seen at several properties on the old Ludlow Road acting suspiciously but was found near to the Priory Church. The male was taken to custody and an investigation has been launched.

A slightly longer article than usual but hopefully you find the articles useful and relevant.

Kind regards

Steph on behalf of Leominster Safer neighbourhood team
