The following is a local policing update for the Wells neighbourhood
Weekly crime summary 7th to 13th November District summary
North Norfolk home watch message 14th November 2014 Crimestoppers success goes from strength to strength, it’s a registered Charity which provides a telephone number 0800 555 111 and an ‘on-line’ anonymous reporting facility to provide valuable information to police and other agencies.
Following Crime Stoppers information in recent weeks, another two properties were identified in the North Norfolk area as cannabis factories; search warrants executed and cannabis plants seized.
Intelligence also came into us recently regarding a male believed to be in the UK illegally. Initial checks with UKBA (UK Border Agency) proved inconclusive but when Police attended the address, the male was arrested (and admitted to being an over stayer in this country)
But it’s not just criminal information we receive either. We regularly receive information and snippets of intelligence on ‘drink drivers’. Only last week saw a male named as regularly driving whilst drunk and being a disqualified driver arrested by local officers.
After you make a report Crimestoppers create a report that brings together all the information. Their call handlers will check that the report contains no information that might identify you. The report is sent to the relevant authority, who will deal with the information. This could be your local police force or an agency such as the UK Border Agency or HM Revenue & Customs. The police have to thoroughly research the information you give us in order to act on it.
The police cannot get a search warrant or make an arrest based solely on anonymous information– there needs to be other intelligence that supports Crimestoppers information. The research they do on Crimestoppers information means they can use it with confidence and once researched the police will deal appropriately.
