Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

This message is dated Friday 8th February 2019 for Ascot.
All our Neighbourhood Teams were in London yesterday, working with and being trained by City Police, who came down to work with us, during the summer, at the two Royal weddings.
There was a brilliant input for us from ‘Op Servitor’, dealing with how to recognise ‘Hostile Surveillance’ of potential targets, for disruption.  Experts have been out and about in Windsor and located every spot, anyone carrying out hostile surveillance would need to stand in, to observe, whatever they need to know.  We can then concentrate on anyone in those positions, as well as just looking at everyone.
There was also an input from the City Police dog handling team.  It was amazing to hear what the dogs are being trained to sniff out now.  It is no longer just tracking people or sniffing out drugs and explosives.
Everyone is anxious to get out there and practice their new skills !
