Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

This message is dated Wednesday 20th February 2019 for Windsor.
FIRST:  We have seen a series of thefts from Supermarkets across the area.  The offenders, stand around the payment area and watch over shoulders, as people enter their PIN numbers.  Then between there and the car park / leaving, they pick pocket the aggrieved, stealing, their purse.  Later, they use the card and make withdrawals !  Because they are really good pickpockets, the aggrieveds are unaware and do not report the theft, allowing the thieves to use the cards for some time !
NEXT: The letters have just gone out today, to everyone who applied for the last round of funding, under the PCC’s Police Property Act, saying whether or not, they were successful.
If you were successful, can you please let me know, so that we can publicise your project and encourage others, to bid in the next round.
If you were successful - let me have brief outline of your bid, what you hope to achieve and how difficult / complicated it was, to put your bid together.
I have received this from the Borough to circulate:
We are investing in new permanent hostile vehicle mitigation (HVM) measures, in Windsor Town Centre.
In March 2017, temporary HVM measures were deployed, in response to the Westminster attacks, but a permanent, integrated solution has now been identified.
The Royal Borough has been working with Thames Valley Police and specialist security consultants, to develop the designs, and detailed assessment work has been undertaken, at each location, to determine the best position and type of HVM measures, to fit in with the surrounding street scene.
There are six locations the first phase will cover: 
  • Sheet Street; south of the entrance to Victoria Barracks
  • Victoria Street; west of Sheet Street near to the pedestrian crossing
  • Park Street; at the junction with Sheet Street
  • Castle Hotel; at the High Street entrance to the parking yard
  • Peascod Street; at the junction with the High Street
  • Thames Street; by the junction with River Street
Installation of these safety measures, is set to begin in summer 2019, and the Royal Borough has agreed to commit £942,000 towards phase 1 of the project, with Thames Valley Police committing £250,000.
19/2  Tuesday 2.30 p.m. / 5 p.m.  Victoria street car park.  Car parked neatly by the owner, when they returned it had offensive graffiti keyed into the bonnet.
18/2  Monday 7 p.m. / 10.25 p.m.  River Street.  Car entered and searched - LAPTOP stolen from the boot.

Tomorrow Thursday 21st February, PCSO Les Bradfield & RBWM Community Warden Duncan Dimbleby, will be in The Bridge, between 12 noon - 2 p.m. holding a Burglary Prevention Roadshow.  If you are in the area - please pop in.  If no-one, or only a few people attend, it may not be considered a good use of police time, when we consider future events !!!
12/2 - 19/2  Eton Road, Datchet.  Burglary.  Top floor flat entered - front door forced.  Untidy search - Playstation 4 stolen.
We are currently experiencing high calls for service on 101.
