In an emergency dial 999
PCSO and PC undertake high-visibility and plain-clothed patrols of car parks and beauty spots along the coast from Llantwit Major to Ogmore. Throughout the summer the number of visits is increased (with particular focus on Ogmore-by-Sea, Southerndown, Nash Point, Monknash, Llantwit Major and St. Donat's as well as some lesser-known and more-isolated areas) in order to target seasonal crime and antisocial behaviour. Vehicles parked on double yellow lines leading to the beach entrance at Ogmore-by-Sea are dealt with by a zero tolerance approach and given a Fixed Penalty Notice. The Vale of Glamorgan Council have the authority to issue fines to those camping overnight; remains of camp fires and litter cause many problems for stock grazing on the common.
