Wildlife Crime - East Lothian

WILDLIFE CRIMEEAST LOTHIAN

On Sunday 1st December a multi - agency day of action was carried out in East Lothian to target ongoing issues with hare coursing and other associated wildlife crime.

During the course of day, numerous officers were deployed to areas across Dunbar, North Berwick and Haddington to carry out patrols.

Although no calls were received from the public, officers did disturb 4 persons near to Knowes Farm, Tyninghame who were suspected to be involved in coursing activities. Due to persons having seen officers approaching, they managed to leave the area within a dark coloured 4x4 vehicle and efforts to locate this were unsuccessful.

Anyone who may have information relating to this vehicle should contact police quoting incident reference 1197 of 01/12/2019. Further days of action are planned over the coming months.

Officers would like to remind members of the public to report any suspicious activity which may relate to Wildlife Crime by contacting Police Scotland on 101 or alternatively to contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Consultation on Control of Dogs (Scotland) Act 2010

The Scottish Government is committed to helping keep communities safe from irresponsible dog owners and their out of control dogs. As such the Scottish Government is undertaking a review of dog control law.  This initial consultation is focused on improving the operational effectiveness of the Control of Dogs (Scotland) Act 2010 to aid enforcement agencies.

Effective and consistent enforcement across Scotland is fundamental in helping address issues relating to out of control dogs.  This review is focused on steps that can be taken to help aid enforcement agencies such as local authorities as they use their powers to help keep communities safe.

Communities are therefore encouraged to consider the questions in this consultation and offer their views to help shape future dog control legislation.

Dunglass Parish - Reflective Service of Remembrance 17/11/2019

Reflective Service of Remembrance with, and for those who have experienced bereavement, loss or separation. As November is a season which brings to mind those we have loved and lost over the years from All Saints Day to Remembrance Day, and as the days grow shorter and lights grow longer in the lead up to Christmas, this time of year is often a time of reflecting on the losses we may have suffered. Whether a loved one has died recently or many years ago, or perhaps there has been a family break-up or you or a family member are going through difficult times, or you simply want to accompany those who are grieving in this time of remembrance, you are warmly invited to join with us in this reflective time of worship. We will gather at 3.30pm on Sunday 17 November at 3.30 pm in Innerwick Church, and hope you might be able to come and share in this short time of reflection and remembrance. Please share a personal invite with anyone you think might want to come along.



Police Scotland - Information for adult survivors of childhood abuse

Police Scotland

Today, we’re launching our new film ‘Information for Adult Survivors of Childhood Abuse’, which aims to raise awareness amongst adult survivors of how to report childhood abuse to police, the criminal justice process and the existence of survivor support services.

We will always investigate reports of child abuse no matter where or when it happened or who was involved. The priorities for any investigation will include identifying the perpetrator or perpetrators, establishing if they still have access to children and, if so, whether they pose a risk to any child.

For more information to help adult survivors of childhood abuse, watch the full video below 👇 and visit:   http://ow.ly/G2Sy50wV99x
