    It is expected that there will be an increase in snow fall and ice this winter, resulting in adverse weather conditions, which may close public roads and make access to minor roads and footpaths inaccessible to residents in Consett and surrounding villages, from Mid December 2018 until March 2019.

    The SNOW ANGELS operation will see Police and partner agencies carrying out mobile and foot patrols in the town centre and surrounding villages. Providing cover to all areas from the 1st of December 2018 for 12 weeks to March 2019 during the day and evening and taking telephone and E-Mail requests from residents who are requesting SNOW ANGELS help and assistance.

    We welcome volunteers to support us with this valuable scheme. This may involve clearing footpaths of snow, delivering food parcels and checking on vulnerable neighbours. If you would like to help please email

    If you have concerns about a neighbour or relative that may struggle during adverse weather conditions and may need assistance from SNOW ANGELS please contact police via 101 or the email address above.
    Don’t be in the dark this winter – get switched on to home safety
    PEOPLE in County Durham and Darlington are being urged to protect their property from opportunistic thieves this winter.
    The onset of dark nights can lead to a rise in burglaries, as a house which is in darkness can look empty to an opportunistic criminal. 
    As part of Durham Constabulary’s Winter Nights campaign, people are being urged to take simple steps to secure their homes to help prevent themselves from becoming a victim of crime.
    Chief Inspector Caroline Davies, from Durham Constabulary, said: “All too often people are making their homes attractive to burglars and thieves by leaving them unlocked or in darkness during the winter months.
    “However, a few simple steps are all it takes to reduce this risk and protect yourself from becoming a victim of crime.”

    Follow these tips to keep your home safe this winter:

    • Lock all windows and doors – even if you’re at home. 
    • A well-lit home gives the impression someone is in.
    • Leave a light on or use timer switches so lights come on when it gets dark.
    • Don’t leave valuables on show. 
    • Don’t leave your house and vehicle keys in the lock or on a side table in view of a window, making it easy for a thief to fish them through your letterbox.
    • Don’t leave curtains closed during the day, only in the evening and overnight.
    • If you have a house alarm, use it. 
    • Contact your local neighbourhood police team if you see anything suspicious in your area.

    As part of the campaign, people are also being reminded to always lock their vehicles when leaving them unattended, and remove all valuables from sight.
    “Vehicles left unattended with valuables left on display or unlocked are a magnet for criminals, who will often try a number of car door handles until they find one that has been left open,” added Ch Insp Davies.
    “It only takes a few seconds to make sure you’ve locked the door, but it could mean the difference between having your car stolen or having it there when you return.
    “In the run up to the festive season when traditionally people are doing more shopping, they should also remove items from their vehicles before leaving them unattended, or lock them out of sight in the boot.”

    During the campaign, PCSOs will also be patrolling key hotspot areas which have seen an increase in burglaries, thefts from vehicles and antisocial behaviour.
    To report any suspicious activity in your area, contact Durham Constabulary on 101, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

These are the policing priorities that local people have agreed with your policing team. You can have some influence on future policing priorities by attending your next PACT meeting.
