Thank you to all those who took the time to visit us at the New Forest Show. We had a very busy three days and enjoyed meeting some of our new members. It was encouraging to see so many of you taking responsibility for your own security, seeking advice from the Country Watch team and purchasing security products from us. The alarmed padlocks in particular proved to be a great hit!
The team and I have had a busy week since the show supporting local Officers in rural operations. Scott spent the weekend working with Lyndhurst and Fordingbridge Safer Neighbourhood Officers on an operation targeting overnight burglaries to rural outbuildings. Dave has been busy planning a series of vehicle stop-check operations targeting vehicles likely to be used in rural crime, looking for stolen property, horse boxes and trailers. Alan has been busy identifying locations for speed enforcement operations in support of the Forest-wide animal accident reduction campaign.
On Wednesday of this week I worked with Paddy Tooley, our Firearms Enquiry Officer. We recovered a 9mm semi-automatic handgun from an address in the New Forest. The gun is a prohibited weapon and has now been removed from circulation making our communities safer.
