Monthly updates from the various North Dorset Police Teams. This month’s news from Sturminster Newtons’s PCSO Mandy Robinson.
The North Dorset team enjoy working the local shows, says Sturminster Newton’s PCSO Mandy Robinson – and look forward to more this summer.
North Dorset Rural Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) attended the Spring Countryside Show at the Shaftesbury on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24h April. NPT were joined by members of the Rural Crime Team on the Saturday. This was our first large community engagement event for 2022.
It was great to see so many people out and about enjoying the demonstrations, craft and food stands as well as the weather. Leaflets, stickers, lost child badges, card police hats, pens and reflectors were handed out to members of the public.
Questions were asked and advice was given.
We will also be in attendance at the following events;
Three Okeford’s Preservation Society Steam and Vintage Show 21st and 22nd May at Shillingstone, and Shaftesbury and Gillingham Show on Wednesday 17th August at the Turnpike Showground Motcombe.
When visiting beauty spots please do not leave valuables in your vehicle whilst you go for a walk – whether you are walking the dog or out enjoying the countryside. Do not place items under your car seat, or put them in the boot as the would-be thieves know all the hiding places. Best by far; don’t take valuables out with you and leave them at home! There is nothing more frustrating than returning to your vehicle after a
lovely walk to find that your car has had a window smashed and your valuables are gone.
