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. 


If someone is trying to break into your premises; if there is a crime in progress; if violence is being used; if there is an injury road accident and/or the road is blocked; in an emergency telephone "999"

If your call is not urgent, ring 101 or your local number:

Cardiff  02920 222111    (Vale of Glamorgan)

Bridgend 01656 655555

Swansea 01792 456999

You can also contact Crimestoppers free and anonymously on 0800 555111.  Visit Crimestoppers website


If your premises have been broken into and you are sure the offenders have left, telephone your local number. 

The Police can provide you with information about how to minimise your vulnerability to repeat incidents and where necessary arrange for support.  The officer dealing with you will collect all relevant information and you will be given the details you need for your insurance claim. 

If you see or hear anything suspicious, or think a crime is being committed, these are some of the things that would be helpful to note: 

An exact description of what you have seen. 

The time and the date. 

A description of the people involved, whether male/female, approximate age and height, hair colour and length, clothing. 

Any other distinguishing features. 

A description of any vehicle/s involved, e.g. make and model if known, colour, type (saloon, estate, etc.).  Registration number - even a part this may be of help. 

Direction of travel.
