Wallingford Neighbourhood Policing update

Alert message sent 03/05/2017 09:44:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Here is the latest newsletter from you Neighbourhood Policing Team which consists of Inspector Mark Harling, Sergeant Fraser Weller, PC Bob McIntyre, PC Simone O’Dell, PCSO Sue Harris, PCSO Marie Davenport, PCSO Sarah Jones & PCSO Clare Beale.
‘You said we did’/ Priorities
Speeding: With the nicer weather and longer days upon us officers will be carrying out extra patrols and speed enforcement operations around the Wallingford area. Including the A415 and A4074 in particular around the Berinsfield roundabout. Due to the weather we see an increase in motorcycles and a small minority of users exceeding the speed limit and riding in a dangerous and careless manor. These problems are of a big concern to many locals and the issues are often raised at our ‘Have Your Say’ meeting.
Anti-social behaviour (ASB): New areas of ASB were identified this month. We have received reports of young people climbing on the roof of Berinsfield library, eggs thrown at a property along Wey Road, Berinsfield and stones thrown at a property in Newlands Way, Cholsey. At this time nobody has been identified however the neighbourhood team will be patrolling the area and speaking to witnesses. Please report cases of ASB via 101 non-emergency number. 
Parking: Areas reported for parking issues this month are St. Johns Road, Wallingford and Evenlode Drive/Lodden Avenue Berinsfield. Please be mindful of where you are parking and pay attention to the road markings signs. The neighbourhood team are actively dealing with reports of parking on a day to day basis.
Offenders brought to justice
  • Unfortunately we have had several reports of small fires being set around Wallingford in particular around by the river and the parks. This is something we tend to see when the evenings are lighter. Officers have been patrolling these areas. A group of young people had been using lighters/matches in the Bullcroft Park one evening which caused a large area of grass to be damaged. Local officers attended the report along with the Fire Brigade, despite the offenders leaving the area officers have identified the people involved. The people involved have been enrolled in a fire safety course.
  • A vehicle was seized in High Road, Brightwell Cum Sotwell and the driver reported for driving without no insurance.
Rogue Traders week/advice meeting
This month the neighbourhood team have been involved in Rogue Trader Week between 7th–14th April. Thames Valley Police have been working with Trading Standards to crack down on Rogue Traders. PCSO Marie Davenport and PCSO Sue Harris will be in Wallingford Market Place on Thursday 4th May between 11am – 2pm offering advice on Rogue Traders.
