Neighbourhood update - Britwell - Haymill

Alert message sent 07/12/2016 11:04:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Neighbourhood update for December - Britwell / Haymill
Here is the latest neighbourhood update from the Britwell Neighbourhood group
Crime Information
The following link will enable you to analyse and view the crime rates within your area, just type in your postcode and all of the information will be displayed (opens new window)
With the clocks changing, we would like to remind residents about home security in order to deter potential burglars. The TVP website has useful crime prevention and security advice to help make residents homes more secure. Using timer switches and ‘fake tv’ lights will help to make your home uninviting to burglars.
Motorists are reminded to ensure valuables are kept out of sight in their vehicles so as to deter opportunists from causing damage or stealing from the cars.
Now we are entering the Christmas period, I would encourage residents not to pile presents under Christmas trees in view of windows. This can act as a shop window for burglars and provide an easy target. Keep presents out of sight.
The Britwell & Haymill team, in conjunction with the Farnham, Baylis & Stoke team, took part in intensive patrols over the Halloween and Bonfire Night period. There were some incidents of anti-social behaviour (asb) but otherwise, the period was uneventful. High visibility patrols were conducted on bikes, cars and on foot with a view to ensuring those participating in festivities could do so in safety.
The Britwell Winter Festival took place recently at the Britwell Centre. This was a lively event enjoyed by all and the neighbourhood team were there throughout the event, talking to residents. This was organised by the local Neighbourhood Action Group (NAG) and was a very successful day.

Neighbourhood Watch
•To help prevent crime by improving security, increasing vigilance, creating and maintaining a caring community and reducing opportunities for crime by increasing crime prevention awareness.
•Neighbourhood Watch is a community initiative, which is supported by the police, not run by them, so success depends on what the members put in to it. The Police can't deal with the problems and issues arising from crime and anti-social behaviour alone; they need the help of the whole community. Neighbourhood Watch provides a way for local people to play an important part in addressing this balance and making their communities safer.
