Golf Clubs Dogs Scams and get in touch


Crime figures remain good in relation to residential Burglary and vehicle crime, nothing to report this week. Here is an update of this week in Burbage.

Theft of golf clubs from a garage on Valiant Close sometime between 01/05 – 06/05. If you have any CCTV in the area, if you could look around 10:00-11:00 on 01/05/2021 for any suspicious activity that would be great. The golf clubs had some sentimental value. They were also left handed clubs, blue/black PowaKaddy, and the Callaway brand. If you get any CCTV please drop me an Email and the crime number is 21*248542.

When out patrolling, we do see many garage doors open with items like bicycles on display. Please remember to limit this especially when you are not about. You never know who is noticing what you have. We have shed alarms at the office (£6-£9 sold at cost) if you need any support with security. Please also take a look at the link for further advice.

There have been a couple of reports around dog concerns this week. Please take a look at the links if you need support with this.

Scams reported by residents

A few residents have been in touch with concerns around scams. The Gumtree scam recently reported has been mentioned again. Also scams on PayPal. Always be wary when dealing with people you don’t know.

A resident has also been in contact regarding persistent scam phone calls claiming there is a bug on the computer. It may be worthwhile contacting your phone provider to see what can be offered to reduce these types of calls.

This citizen’s advice link is also very useful

If you have any information into suspicious activity in the area, please contact 101 or 999 immediately. If you have any information to pass on that can be dealt with slow time or you wouldn’t normally contact the Police for, you can drop me an Email to This information may normally get missed but may join the dots to a bigger picture.
