The local policing team at Ross is now known as "The Safer Neighbourhood Team."
We have one PC - Richard Barradale-Smith 3202 who covers the whole of Ross (Town and Rural) and 3 Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs). Lisa Austin 7131 covers Rural areas, so is our PCSO.
A bulletin is sent out by email approximately once a fortnight with local crimes and any relevant info, this replaces what we were receiving in the past.
If you would like to sign up to this, please follow the instructions below -

Neighbourhood Watch is still running but we don't have access at present to the stickers and information that we used to. Apparently this is being addressed by the Home Office.
Llangrove is covered by Neighbourhood Watch and Police advice now is to ring 101 direct as soon as possible if you see anything at all that makes you suspicious. This is faster than the original system of going via a co-ordinator. Information from the public is vital, but please remember that some detail is needed - place and time, ideally a vehicle registration number and description of occupant(s).
If you wish to report a non emergency incident then 101 should be used for non-emergency incidents. In an emergency, ie immediate fear for life or property, then please dial 999. Crimestoppers is a confidential report system – 0800 555 111. Reports should be in as much detail as possible.
You can also email the team on firstname.lastname@example.org However please do not report incidents direct via email.
