Police car windows smashed whilst on call

June 29, 2020

Whilst local police officers attended an incident on the Vale Estate in Lancaster on Monday night one of their vehicles was badly damaged, as such it has now been taken off the road for repair. Officers were attending a report of property being stolen on the estate and had to leave their vehicle in order to pursue a suspect.

A social media post from Lancaster Area Police on Monday night continued "This is now one less vehicle that we have at our disposal, one less resource to search for a vulnerable missing person, to allow us to respond to a person in crisis, or a person is a victim of crime. Attacking emergency vehicles is nothing short of senseless, dangerous and an unnecessary cost to the tax payer."

If you have any information which may assist in identifying the individuals responsible for this please call 101, or you can call Crimestoppers, free and in confidence on 0800 555 111. Please quote log reference 0824/290620.
