Police Scotland Public Consultation Survey

Dear All

Police Scotland Public Consultation Survey – Your View Counts

The Police Scotland Public Consultation Survey was launched on Thursday, 7th April 2016. In previous years, the survey was paper-based and involved community officers delivering and collating the surveys from members of the local community. This year, the survey has been placed online.

The survey allows local communities to provide feedback to Police Scotland in relation to a variety of topics, including the views of local people and what they believe local policing priorities should be in their communities.

The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete, and everyone is encouraged to participate in it.

Please feel free to circulate this message around friends, family, colleagues, the community and social media.

The survey and further information can be found at www.scotland.police.uk/yourviewcounts .

If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind Regards

No Church Service – Kincardine in Menteith – Sunday 17th January

Due to weather existing and forecast I have made an executive decision to abandon morning worship at Kincardine in Menteith Church on Sunday 17th Jan ( Tomorrow )

Don’t want folks risking road travel when so icy and coming to extremely cold church.

If you can’t stay away from worship then please attend Gargunnock or Kilmadock at 10.30am.

Take care this weather.

Keeping your house safe

On 22 December two break ins were reported in Drummmond Place, Gargunnock and  Burnside, Kippen.  From the modus operandi of both crimes it is highly likely that they are connected.  On both occasions the thief has broken into residential properties by overcoming the security of rear patio doors . Once in, the thief has looked for and stolen jewellery.

Although this type of crime is rare, there are some simple precautions you can take which will prevent you from becoming a victim of housebreaking –

  1. Always keep the exterior doors in your home locked, even if you are at home.
  2. If you are out, leave a light on (particularly in winter) and also consider leaving a radio switched on.
  3. A car left in a driveway gives the impression that someone is at home. If you are going to be away for a long period of time, ask a neighbour to use your driveway to park their car.
  4. Look out for your neighbours home, be nosey and report anything you are unhappy / suspicious about by telephoning 999.
  5. Keep jewellery safe and well hidden in your home.

This type of crime typically occurs during the late afternoon in the winter months, just at the time of day when it’s getting dark and it’s easy to spot which homes are empty (i.e no lights on).  Be reassured that Balfron and Callander Police Officers are specifically patrolling residential areas in order to prevent crime and catch the thieves.  Help us to beat the thieves by taking good care of your home and property.

 Best Regards,

David McNally PS439, Balfron Police Office
