Community Policing Report, 10th February 2015
I am Police Constable 933 Brentt Chambers, one of the Community Policing officers stationed at Alloa Police Office. You can contact me by calling 101 or by e.mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Since your last meeting on 13/01/15 we have recorded 2 undetected crimes and 1 detected crimes for the Menstrie area.
There were no recorded incidents of anti-social behaviour in the Menstrie area since the last Community Council meeting.
There was 1 recorded incident of vandalism in the Menstrie area since the last Community Council meeting, which occurred on the 10th February 2015 and consisted of damage to car tyres in Abercrombie Place. This remains undetected at this time with enquiries continuing.
We have 1 undetected crime relating to theft in the Menstrie area:
Two radiators were removed and stolen from the rear of a property in Dumyat Road, Menstrie sometime between the 14th January 2015 and the 20th January 2015.
Enquiries are ongoing in relation to the undetected matter above however I would like to remind residents to ensure that no property is left lying out unattended or clearly visible for opportunists to take.
To date we have 1 detected road traffic offence for minor road traffic offences and the relevant ticket issued or report submitted.
A change in the limit for drinking and driving has now been in effect since the 5th December 2014 which provides a lower limit of 22 micrograms in 100 millilitres of breath where it was previously 34 micrograms.
This will undoubtedly allow the Police to make our roads safer and, with the publicity circulated by Police Scotland, hopefully decrease the number of persons reported for this offence.
I think it is prudent to mention to all residents that the new lower limit will mean that even the smallest amount of alcohol could easily put someone over the limit. The risks are not worth the cost of losing your licence and the subsequent consequences (financially or otherwise).
Other incidents of note
No other incidents of note within the Menstrie area regarding community issues.
Officers are continuing to carry out intelligence-led stop-and-searches of persons within the local area for drugs, weapons and alcohol, where appropriate, to prevent and deter crime.
