May Bank Holiday Raves
With another bank holiday weekend approaching, the public is reminded to be alert for any suspicious activity associated with illegal music parties (traditionally known as raves) or traveller encampments being set up. This could be large vehicles travelling in convey, equipment being assembled in remote locations and beauty spots and large gatherings of people at dusk. Many such events are organised and publicised via social networks such as Twitter and Facebook, so any intelligence you happen across here could be useful in securing early police intervention as they're very difficult to stop once established. At Easter police closed down a rave in Sussex; the threat is real so keep aware. Contact on 101. [27-04-16]
