Hayling Island NPT Update
For November 2019
Hello Hayling Island!
Going for a bit of a format change this month. Rather than just listing crimes of note, I thought I would provide a bit of a brief update about what the Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) has been up to over the past month, including what our priorities are and if there’s any crime trends we feel you should keep an eye out for. I’ll trial this into the New Year and see what you think. If you don’t like it, we can always go back!
Your Local Team
In case you didn’t know, your local NPT is currently made up of four officers:
Sgt Nicola Robertson
PC Elliot Mowbray
PC Stuart Grover
PCSO Callum Younger
We’ll also soon be joined by PCSO Rebekka Hodson, who completes her training later this month.
Local Priorities
Every month we look at crime statistics and trends, as well as what the Hayling Community are telling us, to direct us towards areas to focus on over the following weeks. These ‘Priorities’ change regularly and is one of the reasons why we encourage everyone to report issues to us so that we can focus our attention properly and appropriately.
Over the last month, the team has been looking at a number of shoplifting incidents that have hit our local supermarkets recently. After working with the local shops, an offender was identified and subsequently arrested. At court, they were handed a 5 month prison sentence to serve over Christmas.
We have also looking at several anti-social behaviour issues by several youths in locations across the island. In particular around Mill Rythe Holiday Village. The investigation around this is ongoing.
Crime Prevention
Over the past few weeks, we have seen a number of Thefts from Motor Vehicles, with numerous items targeted of varying value. With Christmas around the corner and everyone out doing their shopping, we advise everyone to make sure that any and all valuables are taken out of your vehicles when you’re not using them and making sure that they are properly locked and secured overnight. We also advise, particularly over Christmas, that you keep your presents away from view – both in the home and out – to deter criminals who may be looking.

Visit our website for more crime prevention advice over the holiday period.
Other Work
The team have been out with our colleagues from Havant, targeting motorists committing various offences on the road. Several locations across both Havant and Hayling were looked at and a large number of vehicles were stopped. Most drivers only required words of advice and warning regarding having lights out or appropriate use of fog lights. Unfortunately however:
5 Drivers were issued tickets for Speeding.
1 Driver was dealt with for a Tyre Defect.
10 Drivers were breath-tested and were thankfully negative.
1 Driver was arrested after providing a positive breath-test. Their vehicle also had a damaged tyre and no insurance, so was seized.

That’s it for this month. Let me know what you think of this type of update, whether better or worse. Also, let me know if there is anything more you would like to read about!
Those with Social Media can follow us on Facebook and Twitter for more frequent updates about what we get up to. The links are:

As always, if you have any other questions or concerns then please reply to this message and I’ll try and get back to you as soon as possible.
Please do not report crimes here, call 101 or 999 in an emergency.
