Stay in this New Year’s Eve to help save lives:
Identity appeal after theft of stock from Chichester farm shop:
Appeal for information after serious collision at Fontwell:
Recently we have seen an increase in burglaries to businesses and charity shops across Chichester district.
Entry has usually been gained to the premises by forcing the locks to a rear door and cash has been targeted.
We are proactively tackling business crime by encouraging reporting, targeting our patrols, identifying prolific offenders and working with business owners to problem solve, prevent and protect their business from criminality.
This is a reminder for all businesses to ensure their premises are checked regularly, especially during the Tier 4 closures to shops. We would also ask that any suspicious behaviour is reported to us straight away.
