Neighbourhood update - Cippenham

Alert message sent 25/01/2017 12:24:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Neighbourhood update for January - Cippenham
Here is the latest Cippenham Neighbourhood Update from PC 5050 Cerrig SHARDLOW
Team Update: The Cippenham Neighbourhood Team would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a happy new year and very prosperous 2017.
The team were involved in a Crime reduction event at ASDA in Cippenham on the 23rd December providing Crime reduction advice, alerting local residents to emerging crime patterns, whilst offering advice.
Before the Christmas period the team provided some Christmas cheer having produced 10 Hampers, which were distributed to elderly and vulnerable residents across the South Neighbourhoods in Slough.
The Team continue to provide high visibility patrols, regularly patrolling the areas experiencing anti-social behaviour (asb), incorporating local Burglary and vehicle crime hotspots.
PCSO Przechrzta will be leaving the team to go on maternity leave, we wish her well with her new arrival, and look forward to her return in about a years’ time.
Court and Good News stories
As a result of the drugs Warrant executed by the team in March 2016, the trial commenced on 3rd December. Following a two week trial the suspect from Bowyer Drive was found guilty of four offences, relating to possession and supply of both Class A and B Drug, resulting in a 4 year prison sentence. This is a very good result for the residents of Bowyer Drive and for the neighbourhood Team sending out a clear message to those who wish to deal and supply drugs that they will be dealt with.
Crime Prevention Advice: Cippenham has experienced a small increase in the number of Dwelling Burglaries. With the darker evenings and less visibility, it is an ideal time for Burglars to attack premises. It is always a good idea to use timer switches ensuring that there is a light on within the premises when unattended.
Officers would also like to remind residents that leaving satnav holders, laptops, mobile phone chargers, in car Bluetooth devices and other valuable visible items on display within motor vehicles encourages theft from motor vehicle offences. If items are not left in view or on display you are far less likely to become a victim of crime.
Should you wish to have any crime prevention advice give the team a call and someone will contact you to offer suitable advice.

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.
