Cold callers by John Gorham

I would just like to repeat a message that I sent out last week, concerning cold callers to your front door.

If you do have a cold caller, that goes on to tell you that you need something doing to your property, I suggest you politely decline, and shut the door.

If what the cold caller told you concerns you in any way, then contact your own trades person to call and have a look. This is the best way of finding out if a job actually needs doing, and you will get a good job done at a fair price.

Going on from this, if you have a cold caller that states they are from the gas board, electric company, Police or any other service, ask to see an ID card, and if you are still slightly suspicious then ask the person to wait outside whilst you check with their company, if they are genuine, they will not mind.

Routine patrol and checks of Romney Marsh today.

Keep well and keep safe.

Folkestone Vehicle Seizure / No Insurance / Drug Driving By Katie Garcia

Officers were conducting high visibility patrol in the Folkestone area, when they noticed a person driving a Vehicle without Insurance.

The person was also suspected to be driving under the influence of Class A drugs.

They were arrested for the suspected offences – and their vehicle was seized.

This is part of a proactive night time economy deployment to target individuals committing crime in the area.
