Police urge the public to help them cut crime in Littlemoor

Dorset Echo: PLEA: Help police cut crime at Littlemoor PLEA: Help police cut crime at Littlemoor

POLICE have urged the community to help them crack crime as they step up their blitz in Littlemoor in Weymouth.

Officers have more than a dozen arrests in recent weeks as part of their operation in Littlemoor with some remaining on police bail while enquiries continue.

The action comes after a recent spate of vehicle break-ins and arson attacks on cars in the Littlemoor area.

Les Fry, Weymouth and Portland Neighbourhood Inspector, said: “We will take a robust and positive approach when dealing with anyone committing offences.

“We have made a number of arrests in relation to criminal activity in Littlemoor recently and our enquiries remain ongoing.

“Local Safer Neighbourhood Team officers are committed to supporting all victims and they are working closely with partner agencies to ensure that those responsible are dealt with appropriately. “We are working in close partnership with all possible agencies and community groups in the area, so that we can give the very best level of service and support to the people of Littlemoor.

He added: “I am pleased to see that the Littlemoor community is rallying together to help us tackle these issues. “I want the public to know that we are working hard, using all the resources at our disposal, to catch the offenders.”

Insp Fry called for people to contact the force to help them fight crime.

He said: “I would strongly urge anyone with information about criminal activity in the Littlemoor area to contact us in confidence on 101. “Your information may prove vital in our investigation.”

Call the police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

It's amazing what you can hear from being glued to the this website every minute of the day!
If you have a better idea, or can shed some light on the alleged problem family why don't you try giving some of your great knowledge to the police instead of criticising from your arm chair at every opportunity!

NOBODY is untouchable, the Police cannot act on suspicion alone, that is why they are appealing for help, and you obviously, being in the know, can offer your assistance, or are you one that whinges all the time but won't lift a finger to help?

What on earth is going on with your punctuation?

You could do with whacking a few more commas in that sentence.

I'm afraid "niceonecyril". You have Absolutely no idea of the law. Police arrest people on "suspicion" of crimes. Suspicion is all that's needed. You don't need hard evidence to arrest someone.

Seriously? the Police don't need any evidence at all? get real, they can't just arrest somebody because they 'think' it might be them. and you reckon I have no idea of the law, have a word with yourself.

Police arrest on "Suspicion". FACT. Not based on evidence.

Very true. They do know for a fact but they cannot get enough evidence. Many of those arrested recently have been released without charge anyway, its just so the police can be seen to actaully be doing something.

"I am arresting you on suspicion of..." If you have a problem with the "SUSPECTS" not getting charged, level your abuse at the CPS, not the Police, the arrests have been made, the CPS have to authorise it going to court.

If you see a local well known burglar at 2330hrs on a friday night walking in Cleveland Avenue, and the following day, 2 burglaries get reported in that street, you would have reasonable grounds to suspect that he is responsible. You have no evidence but you have reasonable suspicion to arrest.

It's a well known fact that CPS = Criminals Protection Society. The law in this country is no better than a comedy show.

Think you'll find your percentages to be reversed...

Let's not pretend that most families on this dump are respectful hard working famalies.

Of course many are, but I still reckon it's a small percentage against the benefit cheats that line the gardens of the moor in their string vests, with their poor hygeine and backwards views of the world!

Remove those tax contributers and the unfortunate 'legit' claimers that have unfortunatly ended up in the dump, and yes, BLITZ IT!!!

In the 1990s I had a job which involved transporting the "ne'erdowells" who had been refused police bail to the magistrates court. It was always communicated to the CPS solicitor at court to make every effort to persuade the magistrates to remand the suspects in custody. When this was successful and one or two well known individuals were languishing in "the big house" the burglary rate dropped by about 90%! Practical policing at its best!!
