KEEP YOUR SHED AND GARAGE SAFE!!!! Although here in West Cornwall we live in a relatively safe area please read the following advice to reduce thefts from garages and sheds which we do sometimes have problems with.

GARAGES

Garages are often full of expensive tools, which are ideal for using to break into the rest of the house. Never leave it unlocked, especially if it has a connecting door to the house. If you have connected door, make this as secure as you would the main door to your home.

Additional bolts can be used to secure a garage door. Bolts fitted to the outside of the door should be secured with coach bolts and a sold secure padlock.

If you have windows in your garage consider securing these so they don’t open and reinforce them if they cannot be seen from the house.

Consider extending your home burglar alarm to your garage and fit a battery powered PIR alarm

For wooden double leaf doors - secure the doors with a heavy duty hasp and staple,coach bolted through the doors, together with a closed shackled padlock

For up and over doors – Its best not to rely solely on the centre lock provided. If the door is the only means of entry to the garage then you can fit a Garage Defender door lock to the outside. There are also mortice locks specially designed for garage doors that close into the side frame. If there is another entrance, consider fitting bolts to the runners on the inside


SHEDS

Use a good quality closed shackle secure padlock on your shed door and fit coach bolts to hinge and hasp plates on your shed or burr the existing screw heads to prevent them being removed. Install security lighting to cover your garden but ensure this is fitted high enough to avoid tampering.

Secure your shed window internally with a metal grill and padlock or chain, perhaps even use a bike lock, to secure any valuables within the shed.

Lock ladders inside your garden shed, if there is no room chain or padlock them horizontally to a sturdy bracket on an outside wall.

Consider having lockable steel boxes fitted to the floor to store your tools in or anchor posts fitted to the floor to secure larger tools and equipment.

You should keep valuable items in the house but if they must stay in the shed chain and lock them up. Fit a shed alarm.

Connor Reid Eckhardt

NO, NO, NOOOOO...... I WOKE UP CRYING LAST NIGHT!! SHAKING FROM THIS NIGHTMARE. But.....my nightmare is actually real. Just like these pictures show. Our precious 19 year old son Connor, died after "one hit of spice". Spice is a type of synthetic drug. It is sold LEGALLY in most places to children as young as 10, teens, and adults all over the world in local shops and online. You can smoke it, snort it, swallow it, vape it. Kids are even mixing it with energy drinks and injecting it. It comes in candy form, pixie sticks and gummy bears. THIS IS CONNOR'S TEDDY BEAR. I have fixed the nose so many times from him chewing on it when he was a baby. THE NOTE FROM HIM, I TREASURE!! Please parents get educated on the dangers of synthetic drugs. Do it for Connor!!! Do it for your kids. Why? Because, every life matters. Education, Awareness and Prevention! PLEASE SHARE with 10 new people. It may just save a life!!! Please, could you also pray for our family.

Kevin Cooper sentenced to life imprisonment for Murder of Falmouth Pensioner

Police have welcomed the sentencing of Kevin Cooper (pictured) who has been found guilty of the murder of 72-year-old David Alderson from Falmouth.

Cooper, 34, of Poldory View, Carharrack, was sentenced at Truro Crown Court to life imprisonment, to serve a minimum term of 28 years.

The court heard that Mr Alderson was tricked into driving to the disused Wheal Maid mine near Carharrack on 17 January 2014.

Mr Alderson was beaten and dragged into a pond where he was left to drown. His body was found the next morning by a dog walker.

Cooper stole Mr Alderson’s house keys and entered his flat before stealing a substantial sum of money from his safe.

The jury failed to reach a verdict on Trewen Kevern, 21, of Godolphin Road, Falmouth.

Police will be consulting with the Crown Prosecution Service to consider the options for further action.

RURAL CRIME SURVEY!!!

Countryside residents set to make their voices heard in national crime poll

The largest ever survey into crime and anti-social Behaviour (ASB) in rural areas has been launched in England, Wales and Northern Ireland to find out how the police can better serve rural communities. The survey, launched by the National Rural Crime Network (NRCN), is calling for people who work or live in rural areas to come forward and give their views on policing in their community, the impact crime and ASB has on them and their neighbours and to ultimately help shape the future of crime prevention and rural policing.

Anyone living or working in rural areas is being encouraged to take part in the survey to help build a picture of what is a widespread but often misunderstood issue. You don’t need to have been a victim of crime to have a view on how the police work. You may be concerned about police visibility or response, see incidents that go unreported, or you may have a local officer who is engaged and proactive.

The survey will be open until Wednesday 24 June. To complete the survey, visit http://www.nationalruralcrimenetwork.net/survey?member=DevonAndCornwall

For more information on the NRCN visit: www.nationalruralcrimenetwork.net

COMPLAINTS OF ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR AND CRIMINAL DAMAGE IN TREWYN GARDENS ST IVES

Police are having numerous reports of children and young adults congregating in Trewyn Gardens in the evenings. We are being told that they are causing Intimidation to other Park Users and damage to plants.
Police will now be stepping up patrols in the areas and will be taking positive action against those responsible. If you know anyone that is involved please tell them to stop behaving in this manner or stay out of the gardens.
Trewyn Gardens is an area of outstanding beauty and members of our community spend time there to enjoy the tranquillity normally found there. We ask that those using the area have respect for other Park Users.
Causing Damage to plants is a not only a criminal offence but it also means our local Council have to spend money on repairs/replacement which would otherwise be used for other community projects within the town.

ISSUE OF CRIMINAL BEHAVIOUR ORDER ON DAVID HUGHES.

On the 19 May 2015, Mr David Glyn Hughes was issued a 2 year Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) at Cornwall Magistrates Court.

The application which was made in partnership between Cornwall Council’s Anti Social Behaviour Team and Devon and Cornwall Police, prohibits Hughes from:

1. Be in the area known as Penzance as shown on the attached map while under the influence of alcohol;

2. Enter or attempt to enter West Cornwall Hospital whilst under the influence of Alcohol save in a medical emergency;

3. Engage in; threaten to engage in conduct that causes or is capable of causing a nuisance, annoyance, alarm to person or persons which may cause them to fear for their safety;

4.Enter or attempt to enter any licensed premises named on the Penzance pub watch scheme as on 19th May 2015 attached hereto.

Dorian Thomas from Cornwall Council’s ASB Team stated ‘Hughes was subject of previous interventions such as voluntary warnings and a Drink Banning Order was imposed to assist Hughes address his behaviour.

The Drink Banning Order which is due to expire on the 19th November 2015 also prohibits Hughes to be under the influence of alcohol in any public place

Due to a further escalation in Hughes behaviour, there was no alternative but to apply for the Criminal Behaviour Order to protect the public in the community we live and tighten the boundaries for Hughes behaviour.

It is unacceptable for violence such as this to be present in today’s society and we should do all we can to protect the public with in the communities we live.
It is totally unacceptable for one individual to enter into a Hospital and cause fear amongst the staff causing them to feel the need to not only protect themselves, also protect any potential escalation of the behaviour to the patients being treated. The Hospital should be a place of safety for both staff who works incredibly hard and the patients being treated.

The public must have the confidence and reassurance to report anti-social behaviour. By reporting this type of behaviour will assist in making our towns a more pleasant place to socialise and live.’

Inspector Phillips from Penzance St Ives & Hayle stated “David Hughes is a bully. I was appalled by his behaviour throughout the town but particularly at West Cornwall Hospital where caring professionals were assaulted and put in fear. I welcome this ruling and thank those persons who provided us with evidence to secure it”

Two Devon and Cornwall Police Officers seriously injured during Incident in Kingsbridge

A 53-year-old man arrested and in custody.

Acting Chief Superintendent Chris Eastwood, Acting Devon Commander said: “Following an incident in Kingsbridge (13th May), two police officers suffered serious arm injuries and were taken to hospital.

“These two officers remain in hospital and are due to undergo surgery. It is important to stress that while these injuries are serious, they are not life threatening. The whole of Devon Cornwall Police sends its best wishes and thoughts to these officers.

“The welfare of our officers, their families, and colleagues is paramount. Resources and support has been put in place to ensure that those affected by this incident have all the support they need. This also is true for those who responded to the aid of the injured officers at the scene, as we would following any traumatic incident.

“We have been inundated with messages from the public sending their best wishes to our injured officers, both in person and via social media - these will of course be passed on. I would like to personally thank the public for
their show of support.”

Ch Supt Eastwood added: “This is a shocking incident. I want to praise the professionalism and bravery of the officers who were involved in both responding too, and safely resolving this incident. Whilst Devon and Cornwall remains one of the safest areas to live in the country, this incident acts as a stark reminder of the daily risks that all police officers face - routinely putting themselves in harm’s way to protect the public.”

Best Night Ever

Start and end the night right

Devon and Cornwall Police have launched a new campaign to advise young people on staying safe during their summer proms and parties.

“The best night ever...” campaign aims to educate young people about enjoying themselves at social occasions but also reminds them to take measures to ensure they protect their personal safety.

Young people’s judgement may be affected by peer pressure, alcohol, drugs or lack of knowledge and during nights out they may find themselves in situations out of their control. The campaign provides safety advice on getting home, drinking alcohol, peer pressure, relationships and sex.

The force are working with schools to communicate these messages and are offering them opportunity to have their local Youth Intervention Officer visit to discuss the themes with students. They will also be using social media platforms to engage and interact with young people to reiterate the messages.

This campaign is an extension to the #NoBlurredLines campaign which has been running since last September and highlights the issues around healthy relationships, consent and sex.

DCI Brett Mitchell from the Public Protection Unit said; “We want young people to enjoy their proms and parties and this campaign is designed to raise awareness and support young people to make the right choices because sometimes things can go wrong”

“Young people’s judgement may be affected on a night out but this can lead to them being vulnerable. We want to educate and prevent this, before it happens. Our campaign asks them to think before going out to parties so they don’t find themselves in situations out of their control.

“We also want to let young people know that if they need help or advice about an incident that may have happened, we have specially trained officers who can guide them, and there are dedicated support agencies that will provide support as well.

Were you the driver of a yellow car???

Police are trying to trace the driver of a yellow car that is suspected of being involved in a road traffic collision that occurred on the A30 Camborne at the weekend.

A grey Subaru Impreza, travelling on the A30 eastbound at Tolvaddon, collided with the central reservation and landed on the westbound carriageway at around 9.15pm on Saturday 9 May 2015.

Officers are keen to trace a yellow car that left the scene of the collision and may have vital information that could assist with the investigation.

MPC 6210 Roome, based at Camborne Traffic Centre, said: “We are trying to identify the yellow car and appeal to the driver to come forward.

“We would also like to speak to anyone else who has any information about the vehicle or witnessed the collision.”

The female driver of the Impreza, registered to Truro, was treated by paramedics at the scene.

Both carriageways were closed as a result of the collision. Highways were called to repair the central reservation and the road was fully re-opened at around 11:30pm.

Anyone who can assist with the investigation is asked to contact MPC Roome by emailing 101@devonandcornwall.pnn.police.uk or calling 101, quoting reference 784 of 9 May.
