Caravan crime: police launch crackdown



A new police scheme is underway to crack down on burglaries at caravan parks in Towyn, Kinmel Bay and Pensarn.

Neighbourhood officers will meet up with owners to help them prevent crime in their mobile homes by making up valuable property and putting up warning signs. Much of the property to be marked will be TV sets – of which many were stolen before the start of the holiday season.

As part of the scheme, officers will be holding the first in a series of meetings next Monday for caravan owners around the area. PC Steve Thomas, who serves Towyn and Kinmel Bay, said: “Everyone who owns a static caravan in the Towyn, Kinmel Bay and Pensarn areas is invited to the meeting, which is hoped to shape a forum for crime prevention, consumer advice and local authority input to all members. If you are interested, please feel free to come along to the meetings and see how we can help you with any issues relating to the ownership of your holiday home.”

The Towyn and District Caravan Owners’ Forum begins at the Towyn Community Centre on Monday morning (18th August) at 11am.

The first meeting will be hosted by PCSO Phil Roberts and PC 1397 Steve Thomas from the local Neighbourhood Policing Team.
