Rental property which may be used for criminal purposes

Alert message sent 26/11/2019 20:37:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch

Community Safety partners have seen rental properties across the county – including Airbnb properties - being used for organised crime/drug dealing/sexual exploitation and other crime.

Local residents and businesses are urged to report concerns if they think properties are being used for criminal purposes.

The majority of guests at hotels, rental accommodation or caravan parks are there to have an enjoyable time. However, there may be a small number who are using these locations as a base to carry out serious criminal activity. If you have concerns about what you are seeing or hearing, please raise these with the owner, your manager or the police.

Who is your guest?

This is a Crimestoppers campaign that highlights the types of criminal activities which could be taking place, and what to do if you suspect these are taking place. The campaign can be found here: If you prefer not to click on this link, please search online for Crimestoppers.
