Hare Coursing – Police Update 06/12/2016

Message sent by
Fiona Marno (Police, Community Support Officer, Wiltshire East Community Policing Team)

Good Evening,

Over the past week we have been called to numerous reports of hare coursing / poaching on rural land surrounding Avebury, Yatesbury, Pewsey Vale and Upavon area to name but a few. Not only do these criminals partaking in this activity actively chase hares with dogs, which is illegal under the Hunting Act 2004; they also cause criminal damage to crops and fencing along the way.

We urge local residents in rural communities to be vigilant to vehicles (usually 4×4 type vehicles) acting suspiciously and to report any such activity to us on 101 or 999 if persons are seen to be in the act.

Many Thanks
Devizes Police.

Please Be Alert But Not Alarmed To The Threat Of Terrorism 29/11/2016

Message sent by
Katie Bond (Police, Media Officer, Wiltshire)

This week, Wiltshire Police is running a social media campaign to inform the public about how they can help keep themselves and their local community safe in the rare event of a terrorist incident.

The current threat to the UK from international terrorism remains ‘severe’ meaning an attack is highly likely. Therefore, it is important to be vigilant at all times and ensure the public understand the important role they have in helping us defeat terrorism.

Assistant Chief Constable Kier Pritchard said: “We do not want the public to be alarmed but we do want them to be alert.

“Like all other police services up and down the country, Wiltshire Police is working hard to keep people safe but we do need the support of our local communities and businesses.

“Police services depend on information they receive from the public who act as our eyes and ears in our bid to keep people safe. If something concerns you, report it.”

During the week, we will be sharing content from National Counter Terrorism Policing (NCTP) including a short film which gives advice on what to do in the event of an incident. To view the video visit

Other useful information includes guidance on how to anonymously report suspicious online terrorist and extremist content, which can be done by visiting:

We’ll also be promoting the NSPCC 24/7 free helpline, which was set up in July to provide support to adults who have concerns about children and young people being radicalised, or who need advice on how to talk to their children about issues related to terrorism. The helpline is: 0808 800 5000.

ACC Pritchard added: “Our key message throughout this campaign is be vigilant. Terrorists have to plan and prepare attacks which can involve buying and storing materials, communicating and surveillance – whether you work in a shopping centre, local pubs, clubs, farms, you all have a part to play.

“Police forces up and down the country will continue to operate at a heightened state of readiness while the threat level remains at severe, however it is important to stress that Wiltshire remains one of the safest counties in the country to live, work and socialise in and we will continue to work hard to prevent crime and protect the public.”

Please ensure you always:

• Remain alert to the danger of terrorism
• Report anything suspicious to the police on 999 or the anti-terrorist hotline: 0800 789 321
• If your information doesn’t relate to an imminent threat, you can also contact your local police on 101. Continue reading Please Be Alert But Not Alarmed To The Threat Of Terrorism 29/11/2016
