“Residents should still be vigilant, however, and lock up their homes and cars as these offences are still happening although at a lesser rate,” he said.
Items such as cash, wallets, iPods and laptops have been targeted,” he added.
“These days policing is very much a mobile on the road job.”
“Every police car is a mobile station with instant access to data,” he said.
“If we spot a suspicious vehicle or do a random roadside check, all we have to do is key in the number plate and we can ID the owner and see if the vehicle is registered or stolen and check the driver’s status.”
“Unmarked cars as well as highway patrol vehicles are always cruising around and specialist units can be summoned in as the need arises,” Constable Rogers told News Of The Area.
“Most drivers are adapting to the new speed limits on the main road but there have been reports of a few over anxious people behind the wheel taking unnecessary risks while overtaking at excess speed.”
