Sadly police too often hear about a callers who are not who they claim to be. They will use all sorts of pretences – the Water Board; the Post Office; the Housing Executive; even the Police – but they are all bogus. For some, the aim is to trick their way into your home and steal money or valuables. For others, the aim is to persuade you that they can do work about your house – clear the gutters; power wash the yard or clean the roof – and maybe they will do it, but for an inflated price. We will be working to raise awareness and to show doorstep crime the door. Our advice is simple. Do not let anyone into your home unless you know who they are, or they can prove their identity.

A Red Massey Ferguson 35X tractor registration 4375IB was reported stolen from the Teeraw Road area of Armagh sometime between the 15/3/16 and 2/4/16.

This tractor is quite distinctive in that it has an exhaust that points downwards rather than upwards. It also has 2 dents in the rear mud flap
and would have an unusually long pipe connected from pump to diesel tank.


Could anyone with information please contact police on 101 and quote police reference number 441 of 2/4/16

We want to disrupt the activity of those who target farmers and others in the rural community. We understand the importance of our rural communities and the role they play in the local economy and understand the fact that thefts of machinery and livestock hamper a farmer’s ability to do their job and causes significant upset, inconvenience and loss of income. Help us, by reporting suspicious activity as soon as you can with as much detail as possible so we can target those who seek to target you.

DOE statistics from 2014 show that 98% of car occupants were observed to be wearing their seatbelt. Please don’t be part of the 2% who do not.
Remember wearing a seatbelt greatly improves your chance of avoiding death or serious injury in the event of a collision.
It’s not only the law but it could also save your life. ‪#‎NoEggcuses‬

How did the egg cross the road? Hopefully in bright and reflective clothing. YOU CRACK US UP WHEN YOU DON’T!!
Please don’t walk home at night along rural roads. If you do always wear bright, reflective clothing or have lights and walk facing the flow of traffic.

Unfortunately 3 pedestrians have been killed in collisions across Northern Ireland this year.

You’ll get smashed if you drink and drive. And we will poach your licence and your independence. Drink driving - We’re cracking down on it….

Every day across Northern Ireland we arrest those who continue to drink and drive. Drink and drug impaired driving is still one of the main causes of persons being killed or seriously injured on our roads. During our Winter Drink Drive operation, we arrested 396 people for drink driving. Do not become one of our statistics.

Please... report those who disregard their own safety and others and help us keep people safe on our roads.

Easter holiday period has been busy so far for us. Our main concerns are road safety - the weather is making driving conditions tricky. Also, if you’re going away please make sure you secure your property - and if your neighbours are away, keep an eye on theirs. Happy Easter to all from Armagh PSNI. ‪#‎keepingpeoplesafe‬

Good Morning ...
Folks, be aware of Social Media Scams & fake emails, and of course bogus Telephone Calls this weekend.
It’s an ideal time for scammers as many services are operating reduced staffing levels ..

Example : ...
Trolls : Social Media Facebook & Twitter / Fake Profiles trying to causing upset or controversy 😠
Note : Report fake accounts !!

Scammers : HMRC emails telling your about a refund asking you to create an fake account 🙄
Note : Just delete

Have a nice weekend ..

Are you getting the message? Or is it still scrambled……????
Mobile phones and driving do not mix! When driving the only thing you should be concentrating on is the road.
