The Rural Beat Team are working with the communities to offer crime prevention advice and also to conduct targeted patrols to give local residence some reassurance.
We would strongly encourage everybody to secure and mark their property where possible, for our farming community we recommend fitting trackers to high value machinery as standard practice.
The rural Beat team will also be visiting village location in the community contact vehicle so local residents can speak at first hand with officers about any issues or concerns they may have.

Frome Neighbourhood police have noticed a slight increase in thefts from motor vehicles. Most of these incidences occurred when drivers have parked their cars in an isolated location to go for walks. If you plan to leave your vehicle in a remote place, please remove all valuables to reduce the chances of being targeted by criminals.
If you see any suspicious behaviour you believe is relating to crime, please report it to the police on 999 / 101
