Farm Watch Bulletin 18 January 2018 (Sussex Police)

3 months 1 week ago
Thursday, 18 January 2018 Farm Watch Coordinator's Update The number of animals reported as loose on the highway this week has dramatically increased with a total of 107. This included 105 sheep, 1 goat and 1 horse. Please continue to check roadside hedges and fences on a daily basis, including those where a railway line passes by. Over the past week there have been a number of reports of works vehicles being broken into overnight and tools being stolen. Where possible all vehicles should be emptied before being parked up for the night. Alternatively, consider backing vans up against brick walls or block any side doors with other vehicles to restrict entry.  Finally, I would encourage you to report any suspicious or unusual activity at your property via the non-emergency number on 101 or via the Sussex Police website. A vehicle of persons entering your farm and then seemingly leaving when you have noticed them may not seem significant; but your report could place them in the area at the time and be of use if an incident has taken place elsewhere locally. Any reports of unusual or suspicious activity help us to build a picture of your local area.  Kindest regards  Phillip Crime and incident update   Monday 08 January 2018 to Sunday 14 January 2018 Area Ref Date Details Adur & Worthing 0282 10/01/2018 A white Ifor Williams trailer, model BV126, that contained blind related machinery, various tools and ladders has been stolen from premises in Evershed Way, Shoreham by Sea.

Better internet security in two minutes Domain Name Systems (DNS) are like public phone books for the web. They’re the reason you only need to remember a website’s name and not its IP address (think of these as phone numbers for computers). When you type “www.youtube.com” into a browser, a DNS service translates that into the associated IP address (199.223.232.0) for you. Imagine a phone book that automatically filters and removes phone numbers known to be used for fraud. That’s what Quad9 does for websites. Quad9 provides an automated way to protect yourself and your business by blocking access to known malicious websites, like phishing sites designed to steal personal or banking details. Quad9 checks the website to determine if it’s malicious. Visit Quad9.net for a step-by-step guide on how to improve your online security in two minutes.
