Nottingham Knockers - North Cotswolds
Police have received calls from all over the North Cotswolds Monday 23rd April regarding door to door sellers. The public are reminded to not buy any products at the door step. These persons are commonly referred to as "Notting Knockers" as in day gone by you could apply for a peddlers licence from the Chief Constable of Nottingham. Peddlers licences are still issued but the user of these licences has to meet criteria, one of which is not to have any criminal convictions. The "Nottingham Knockers" predominately have criminal convictions and will use this to make the buyer feel sorry for them. These door to doors seller will look to see where you are going to get your money to pay them. They will smell the money to see if it smells musty and has been kept in the house for a long time. This will give them information they sell on to other criminals who may come and commit burglaries by deception at a later date. The easiest way to get rid of these callers is to say "NO". Never let them into your home. If they become aggressive call police on 999. Police will always attend and move these person on or if we have sufficient complainers they can be issues a fix penalty notice of £90 on the spot.

Theft from vehicle - Dovers Hill View Point
Gloucestershire police incident 171 23/04/18 Police have received a report of theft of valuables from a vehicle parked at Dovers Hill View Point , Chipping Campden at 1:00pm Monday 23rd April. The owner of the vehicle has not left any items on show and has locked the valuables in the boot of the car. However a side window was smashed and the offender managed to gain entry to the car boot stealing the occupants handbags. It would appear the offender have watched the occupants of the car place their valuables in the boot of their car. Police are reminding everyone to be vigilant at any of the Cotswold isolated parking areas to report any suspicious activity and we are still asking the public to hide any valuable out of sight when leaving their vehicles unattended.

- 10 apps that you need to be most aware of: The following list has been created by the police to highlight the 10 apps that you need to be most aware of. In our continued attempt to keep you all informed of the daily, weekly and monthly challenges of cyber safety for children, we urge you to read and give advice and support as appropriate. These are the 10 apps police have recently warned that parents need to know about if they want to keep an eye on their children's cyber safety: 1) Omegle Omegle is a free online chat room that lets users talk anonymously to complete strangers. It randomly pairs users in one-on-one chat sessions where they can chat to people all around the world. The site now provides a mobile app that lets users chat with strangers from mobile devices. 2) Yubo (formerly called Yellow) This app has had quite a lot press in the past for its similarity to adult dating apps & it's been criticised for letting young users exchange texts and photos with nearby strangers. Users are also able to "swipe" other users that they are interested in and swap selfies with each other. This app is designed to permit teens to flirt with each other as with Tinder. It could be used to trade naked pictures. 3) Calculator App lock This allows users to hide private photos and videos in plain sight by disguising itself as a calculator. It also allows users to write and store private notes and securely browse the internet with a private browser. This app might look like a calculator but it actually functions as a type of secret photo vault. Other apps with similar settings include Secret Calculator Vault and Calculator + Photo Lock Vault. 4) Ask.fm http://Ask.fm " target="_blank">Ask.fm is a social networking site where users create profiles and send each other anonymous questions. It has been linked to cyberbullying as it allows users to send unkind questions and messages completely anonymously. The site came under fire following the deaths of two English teenagers who killed themselves after they were bullied on the site. 5) Kik messenger Kik is a free instant messaging mobile app that allows users to send and receive messages, photos, videos and mobile web pages. Users can also join special groups and video chat using the app. 6) Hot or Not Hot or Not is a game where you upload your best pictures and get rated by other users in your area. The app also lets users see how attractive friends are and browse through a list of the most attractive people nearby. Strangers then rate profiles with a view to meeting up. 7) Burnbook Burnbook is an anonymous gossip app that lets users post rumours about people through audio, messages, texts and photos. It encourages cyberbullying as per the teen cult movie Mean Girls. Users can download the app for free, search for school communities within 10 miles, and share text, photo, and audio messages with other community members. 8) Wishbone Wishbone is a controversial comparison app that allows users to compare whatever they want to. It allows users to compare children against each other and then rate them on a scale. 9) Whisper Whisper is an anonymous app which promotes sharing secrets and meeting new people. The service allows users to post and share private photo and video messages completely anonymously. The posts, known as "whispers", consist of text superimposed over an image - which can be uploaded or selected from an in-app search engine. 10) Instagram Probably the best-known app on the list, Instagram is a photo and video-sharing social networking service that is owned by Facebook. As with many social media platforms, users can have more than one account. Users will use one profile to interact with their friends and the other one is their normal account where they'd post what they want their family to see. In Instagram, users call this a 'finsta' which means 'fake Instagram' account. Users like to text using Instagram because messages are deleted once a user leaves a conversation. Children are more likely to use this app to message each other, as it is easy to delete private messages. Many thanks PC 2201 Nick Westmacott Safeguarding officer North Cotswolds
