Information Update – 10th February 2013

Anti-Social Behaviour and Crime Statistics
We have recently published stats regarding the decrease in Crime and Anti-Social in the Trimdon area, I am pleased to say that this has continued in recent weeks.

The slight crime increase in Trimdon Grange and Colliery appears to be under control and the introduction of Operation Nebraska (see next article) has been successful.

Operation Nebraska – Farm Watch/Rural Crime
Over the last 2 months the Sedgefield Neighbourhood Police Team have been carrying out overnight targeted patrols in the Trimdon area in relation to a recent increase in rural crime. So far no  crimes have been reported, some valuable intelligence has been obtained and the team thank members of Neighbourhood Watch and Farm Watch for providing some of this information.  As a result of intelligence received and further enquires conducted four local males have been arrested in relation to a stolen motor vehicle being found in nearby Hutton Henry. Three local  males have been charged with a number of offences, 1 remanded in custody and one remains currently on Police bail, this operation will continue to run and target a number of local males in the Trim don Colliery/Station area. Anyone who has any information regarding crimes in the Trim don area lease either contact us directly or via Crime Stoppers.
