Crime Update

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

Good afternoon all, please find below crime update for Trowbridge for the last week - apologies this is very brief, but as you will see this is for a positive reason.

I'm pleased to report there were no burglaries for Trowbridge Town and surrounding villages, and only three reports of theft.  The number of reported crimes is down around 30%, with many crime types showing a large drop.  This is no time for complacent though, and it is clear that criminals are adapting how they work, with an increase in reported frauds, particularly those using the Covid-19 crisis as their 'cover story'.

Please remember that your bank, building society, the police, HMRC or other Government agency would never ask you to provide confidential details over the phone or via email.  If you are at all concerned or unsure, please hang up and don't reply to any emails or click on any links contained within them.  Please note if you are given a fixed penalty notice by the police, you are not required to hand any money to the officers there and then - there have been reports of people posing as plain clothes officers and demanding money from people.  If in doubt, ask to see the officer's warrant card.

Until next week, please take care and look after one another.

PC 1970 WITHEY and 2342 DAVERIDGE.
