Neighbourhood Policing Newsletter - March

Alert message sent 13/03/2017 12:53:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Here is the latest neighbourhood team newsletter from PCSO Rich Osborn.

I have heard some third-hand reports about dog poisoning in the Wootton area, although I have had not had any formal reports of this happening. I have also spoken to Abivale Vets who have also not had any reports. However, there was two bin bags worth of mouldy bread dumped in the corner of the playing field in Wootton, the blue mould on the bread can be very harmful to dogs. Please be aware of this and do not let your dog pick up and eat any mouldy bread. If anyone has any information on the fly-tipping of the bread in the park please call 101.  

Dog fouling/walking
I have had reports from local farmers about dogs fouling on their land. Dog foul can carry diseases that can be harmful for livestock so please could dog owners clean up after their dog and dispose of it in the correct manner.

When out walking and enjoying the countryside could I remind you to be careful around livestock. Please can you keep your dogs and children in control around these animals who can become protective especially if they have their young with them. 

Metal thefts
We received a report that offenders in a white Ford Transit van (with a roof rack and index number W***EOK) were in the Wootton area and had stolen metal from a building site on Thursday 3/3. If you have any information on this please call 101.

Crime prevention advice
I have recently been on a three day enhanced training course around crime prevention which has enabled me to both refresh my knowledge and learn new skills on carrying out detailed home surveys on residential properties. This training will enable us to provide detailed advice to victims of crime around keeping their property safe. 

Future events/meetings
I will be out and about in the community, and often attend the coffee morning at the Dry Sandford and Wootton Community centre so please pop in and have a chat about any local concerns. If you have a particular event that you would like me to attend let me know!
