IN this month’s column I’d like to talk about distraction burglary. This can take a number of forms but is carried out by criminals who deliberately target the most vulnerable members of our communities.

AFTER years of planning the Olympic and Paralympic Games are finally now underway! Significant numbers of officers from across West Mercia are supporting the games at various locations, including London, on pre-planned deployments. To ensure that we are still able to continue with ‘business as usual’ in our local communities and be there when needed, the vast majority of officers have not been allowed to take leave during this time. This, in effect, means there are more officers available.

I AM glad to report that during the riots in early August peace was maintained across the Wyre Forest area as we would all hope and expect. To ensure that this was the case police officers from across Wyre Forest worked extended shifts making sure that they were available if and when needed. In addition, some officers were deployed to Birming-ham to provide them with assistance.

West Mercia Police run a Child Sex Offender Disclosure Scheme which allows members of the public – parents, carers, guardians or interested third parties – to ask the police to tell them about a person’s record of child sex offences if they are concerned about that person’s access to a child.

I RECENTLY met with all the chairs of the Partners and Community Togethercpanels to see how the PACT process is progressing since it started four years ago. The good news is that they still meet regularly across Wyre Forest and the panels have dealt with many issues raised at their meetings.

AUTOMATIC Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) is a proven technology that has been used for more than 20 years – it is accurate and reliable and its use is leading to the arrest of numerous criminals, the seizure of thousands of un-roadworthy vehicles and the prevention of many offences.

WELCOME to the first On The Beat column of 2009. Many people will have made a New Year’s resolution to reduce the amount of alcohol they drink so this is a good time to look at the issue of Alcohol Restriction Zones.
