Dog Theft Survey

Neighbourhood Watch Network is supporting Sussex’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Katy Bourne, who, in partnership with the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners (APCC), has created an online survey designed to understand the public’s perception of dog theft, enforcement, and the prosecution of offenders.

The survey includes a question seeking views on whether dogs should be treated in law merely as property when they are stolen. Having a common understanding of how the public feels about this issue will help inform discussions that PCCs and NWN will have nationally, as well as allow police forces to better understand the public’s views.

Mrs Bourne said: “Pet theft, dog theft in particular, is a growing concern for the public and their fear has been perpetuated over the last couple of weeks with shocking reports in the media of more dogs being snatched by criminals.

“I am incredibly eager to get more detail around this issue and understand residents’ views and if they feel more could be done to respond to their concerns or for more preventative measures to be put in place to better protect their pets.”

Neighbourhood Watch Network have just been approached to help support this campaign so apologies for the short notice as the survey closes on Friday12th March.  Please, if you can, and haven’t already, take a couple of minutes to complete the survey as your support and views are really valuable to us.

Kind regards

Fake Bank Notes – Cornwall

Warning over Facebook Marketplace scam
Police are appealing for information after thieves used fake bank notes to steal electrical items being sold on Facebook across Cornwall.
Two females have agreed to purchase high-end electrical items such as games consoles by contacting sellers on the Facebook Messenger app.
It’s reported that the pair then collect the items from the sellers and hand over an envelope filled with counterfeit currency before fleeing the scene with the goods.
Police have received five reports of people all over Cornwall being targeted by the pair from Camelford to Penzance and other locations in between.
It’s believed they have made off with around £2,000 worth of goods so far.
The females are described as white, both about 5’4” tall. One is believed to be in her mid 40s with blonde hair and a slim build.  The other is aged in her early 20s with wavy brown hair and also of slim build.
A spokesman for Devon and Cornwall Police said: “We would ask anyone selling items privately to be wary when accepting cash from strangers.
“If you or anyone else you know has fallen foul of a scam like this, please contact police immediately.”
Anyone with information about these incidents is asked to contact police on 101 or via email on 101@dc.police.uk quoting crime reference CR/011791/21.
