It isn't a big deal, but someone had obviously been messing about with it. I have had an e-mail back from the police.

TWO men have been captured on CCTV rummaging through paper recycling.
This was in Rhos on Sea.

Issuing a warning to the public, NWP Community Safety said on July 7: "Make sure you shred your letters and bank statements before putting them in the recycle bin.

"This could stop you becoming a victim of identity fraud."

Good sound advise there and you should also remove your names and addresses from parcels too.     I shred mine but they also go into a garden incinerator afterwards

BIKES valued at more than £10,000 have been targeted overnight.

The two burglaries occurred in Llandudno Junction.

One happened on Victoria Drive and the other on Marl Avenue.

NWP Community Safety tweeted: "On both occasions the thieves were after the expensive bikes kept in the outbuildings - over £10,000 worth of bikes.

"To keep your bikes safe invest in a padlock alarm."

48 ghoulish M6 drivers who filmed fatal crash get letters from cops saying they could be prosecuted
To film the aftermath of the Cheshire crash was an 'insensitive' act where 'family, colleagues, friends may well not be aware of the incident', police say

According to the post, 48 people were spotted videoing the incident from their mobile phones on the Northbound carriageway.

NWMP have now confirmed that Cheshire Police have sent out a letter of prosecution to those individuals.

I have signed up, and will pass on anything of local interest, but everyone can sign up, the more the better, register below.

COMMUNITIES in North Wales can now keep up to date with personalised policing news following the launch of a brand new free messaging service.

North Wales Community Alert has been funded as part of the Home Office Safer Streets Fund and North Wales Police are the first force in Wales to launch the alert system.

The system is currently used by several other police forces in other parts of the UK and has seen positive results and greater engagement with communities. It will allow residents the chance to access up to date information about crime, engagement events, appeals, prevention advice and general policing activity in a certain area.

The system also includes a messaging service that allows users to put forward what matters to them.

Carl Foulkes, Chief Constable, said: “We are delighted to launch North Wales Community Alert which will form a key part of our Local Policing. It is a free messaging service for people who live and work in North Wales to help our communities to stay informed and up to date with news, alerts, appeals, engagement events and general policing activities from your local police teams.

“What makes North Wales Community Alert so useful is that individuals can choose what information they would like to receive from us and how they would like to receive it whether by email, text or voice message - so they don't even need an internet connection - the choice is in their hands.

“North Wales Community Alert isn’t just a broadcast channel, where it is just us telling you. It is a two-way messaging system so that we have an additional route to listen to what our communities have to say.”

Andy Dunbobbin, Police and Crime Commissioner, said: “North Wales Community Alert will give our communities a great opportunity to provide feedback to their local neighbourhood police team on the issues that matter most to them, helping us to work together to make North Wales the safest place in the UK.

“Local Police officers will be raising awareness of the scheme and I encourage residents, businesses and community groups to sign up to the system.

“Please take some time to register with North Wales Community Alert, it is quick, simple and completely free.”

COUNCIL tax payers in North Wales will have to shell out more than £6 million extra to pay for policing in North Wales this year, figures reveal.

Home Office data shows £89.7 million in funding for North Wales Police will come from council tax bills in 2021-22 – £6.1 million (7%) more than last year's £83.6 million.

A further £86.4 million will come from central government – up 7% compared to 2020-21.

Across England and Wales, a combined funding pot of £15.9 billion has been agreed for the current financial year – a 4.5% real terms rise since last year.

But the Police Federation of England and Wales wants to see a multi-year funding plan implemented to stop forces operating "hand to mouth" through yearly settlements.

This is the fifth consecutive year in which police funding has increased in real terms, following a decline between 2010-11 and 2016-17.

BURGLARS, thieves and robbers from North Wales will be fitted with GPS tag upon on their release from prison.

The ‘world first’ scheme was initially launched as a pilot in six police force areas, including Cheshire, but is now being extended to cover much of the rest of the country, including in North Wales.

The move is part of the UK Government’s new Beating Crime Plan published on Tuesday to “ensure the public is better protected across all parts of the country.”

With more than half of those convicted of theft and burglary reoffending within a year and almost 80 per cent of cases resulting in no suspect being identified, this will be a vital extra source of intelligence to help police catch these persistent offenders.


Under rules coming into effect in September, burglars, robbers and thieves that have served a prison sentence of a year or more will be automatically fitted with a tag on release, allowing their whereabouts to be monitored by GPS satellites 24 hours a day for up to 12 months.

A warning after what was initially thought to be a silly prank actually turned out to be a clever burglary trick.

On Monday morning (August 16), Maria Celino-Stalker woke up to find a pile of kidney beans on her doorstep.
Initially, she thought that she had just been the victim of a silly prank.

But after mentioning it to her ex-police officer, she found out that the mess was a sign of something more sinister.

Maria now believes the kidney beans were used as a tactic by potential burglars wanting to scope out whether people were at home.
"Apparently this is a known trick of burglars.

"If not cleaned up in a couple of days they know you are not home and in they go.

An aspiring police officer rang 999 to check on the progress of his application to join North Wales Police, it’s been revealed.

It was one of a string of “ridiculous” emergency calls dealt with by the force’s control room, which have been slammed as potentially putting lives at risk.

On another occasion a women dialled 999 to ask for police assistance to move her sofa which had become jammed in her hallway after she tried to shift it from her lounge to another room

Another example came when a woman stood outside the police station in Rhyl called the emergency line asking for a lift home after she had failed to book a taxi.

The force is now urging people to report non-urgent matters to them via the website so emergency lines can be kept clear.

Control room manager Paul Shea said: “Unfortunately, we still get too many silly calls like the one from the lady who got the couch stuck in the hall.

“Another call that sticks in the memory was the one from the lady with the spider on the bed. She was scared and wanted a police officer to come to move the spider.

“They’re just not policing matters and it takes valuable resources from people who are in real trouble.

“The flip side of that is that there are other people who should have phoned 999 who called the non-emergency line 101 instead because they didn’t want to bother us.

“I would like to stress that people should always ring 999 if they are suffering a proper emergency.”

The centre already handles an average of 80,000 emergency 999 calls a year and on average they’re answered in just 3.1 seconds.

Although it might sound like stating the obvious, never leave your garage or shed door unlocked if you’re not around.

"Property marking your items is advisable and some tools can be painted with your name or postcode. Forensic marking is also an option. "

While many people might be looking forward to the promise of Halloween, Christmas and cosy nights-in in front of the fire, the dwindling daylight hours also brings with it the threat of one specific type of nuisance.

'Twilight crime' is a term that North Wales Police have used to describe incidents - typically thefts and burglaries - committed by largely opportunistic individuals who take advantage of the long, dark hours brought about during the close of the calendar year.

The force have said that while burglaries and similar thefts are still relatively low, they tend to increase during the autumn and winter months.

Lock your doors, Plenty of lights, Visible deterrents, Report, report, report..........

An appeal has been launched to find a missing man who could be in a campervan in Llandudno.

The 28-year-old man, who is called Jamie, went missing from his home in Cleveland on Wednesday September 22 and his abandoned car was reported in Coventry on September 25.

West Midlands Police say he has bought a blue coloured Piaggio Porter camper van, registration PO56 OXW, adding: "We believe he could be in Llandudno area of Wales in the campervan."

If anybody sees the 28-year-old, they are asked to call 999 with any information, quoting MPCV/9685/21.

TWO North Wales officers who tackled an armed man who had forced his way into the home of a woman he had earlier allegedly sexually assaulted have received a Police Bravery Award.

Armed response vehicle officers Richard Shea and Matt Reynolds, who retired in June last year after three decades of service, were invited to receive their awards in full dress uniform at 10 Downing Street on Tuesday, October 12.

The officers were called to an address in Llandudno Junction in June 2019 following reports that a man armed with a gun was forcing his way into a property after previously attacking a woman there earlier that night while young children were at the address.
