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. http://ow.ly/i/imDTy

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. http://ow.ly/i/i9RvX

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.

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.

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.

Police received a number of reports that bins had been overturned and left in the middle of public roads in Tandragee between Thursday 10th March and Friday 11th March.

Reports from residents and drivers in and around Moyrourkan Road, Cooly Hill, Cordrain Road, Armagh Road, Ballyknock Road and Laurelvale Road.

Many of the locations in which this happened are rural and for drivers travelling along these roads any unexpected obstruction would be very difficult to see and could ...cause a serious collision.

A Volkswagen Bora was seen driving in the area around the time and we believe it may be linked to this incident.

If you have any information in relation to this incident please contact on us on 101 and quote ref: 1332 10/03/16
