Pc Paul Weeks said: "There are a number of initiatives being conducted.
"We have a large migrant worker community in this area and have drawn from police resources and the fire service a number of European language speaking staff in order to engage with them effectively to address any issues or concerns they may have.
"From a crime aspect we have seen a trend of vehicle number plates being stolen which are then used on other vehicles involved in criminality such as stealing fuel or to avoid offences detected by cameras. To address this we have a limited number of anti-plate theft kits available free of charge to give to concerned motorist from our crime prevention stall."
