Produced at Tisbury by PC Mark Steele.
 

DRINK DRIVERS - A MENACE.

You may have noticed on this bulletin recently the arrests of several drink-drivers. A number of these arrests were as a direct result of following up information received from you. However there are still people out there who are regularly driving having knowingly drunk too much alcohol. If you know of someone who does this and you have not yet told us please consider the following:

  • You are much more likely to have an accident if you have been drinking.
  • Every year up to 3,500 people are killed or seriously injured because of drink-drivers.
  • Drink drivers travel on the same roads as you and I do.
  • They use the same roads as your son, your daughter, your mother, and your father. They travel the same roads that horse riders use. They drive along the same roads that children cycle along.

If you wish to tell us about a drink driver ring us at Tisbury or Mere.
If you want to tell us anonymously use the Crimestoppers number 0800 555 111.
Don't just do nothing, with your help we can stop them. Act now, you may save a life

SHED ALARMS, SAFECANS U.V PENS ETC.

For those of you wishing to purchase any of the above items they are now all available at Maiden Bradley Village Shop. For those of you still waiting for me to get round to you please bear with me I do have a list but finding the time or finding people in at the appropriate time is not straightforward.
I know some of you have been waiting for a while please be patient I will get there.

COLD CALLERS - WE NEED TO KNOW.

There are still groups of people travelling around this area trying to con people. Bogus callers have struck recently near our area so lets be ready for them if they meander onto our patch. These people will call at your house and either distract you whilst their mate nips through your back door or will try and get in themselves. They will say they are from the gas board, water board, electricity board, need a pee, have lost their dog, need to use your phone, want to cut your hedge, need directions, anything that may give them an opportunity to get into your house to steal your belongings. Genuine callers have proper identification.

DO NOT LET ANYONE INTO YOUR HOUSE UNLESS YOU KNOW WHO THEY ARE.
IF YOU ARE IN ANY DOUBT RING '999' IMMEDIATELY.
