It is reported that the ceramic plaque, which had been placed near the Miners’ Wheel memorial in the village’s Market Place, was removed between 6.30pm and 9pm on the evening of Monday 16 May.
Officers are carrying out enquiries into the circumstances to determine whether any criminal offences have been committed and have released a photo of the plaque as part of their appeal.
Callum Wheeler was this week found guilty of murdering PCSO Julia James as she walked her dog near Aylesham in April 2021.
Dover District Commander, Chief Inspector Daniel Carter, said: ‘Local officers remain in the area as part of their ongoing work with the community and I would like to thank residents for their continued support and encourage anyone with information about the plaque to get in touch with us.’
Anyone who has seen it, or has information, is asked to call Kent Police on 01843 222289, quoting reference 46/94100/22.
