Oxford Public Spaces Drug Taskforce

Alert message sent 29/03/2019 08:02:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch

I attended a successful, interactive meeting in East Oxford hosted by one of our Neighbourhood Watch Coordinators with Oxford Public Spaces Drugs Taskforce. 
I have taken extracts from the Oxford City Council website showing the contribution of Neighbourhood Watch schemes and reporting drug issues.There is more information on the website

All the taskforce’s work follows the principles of Clear, Hold and Build – clear the area of the drugs-related activity through arrests and disruption techniques; hold the area through high-visibility patrols, improving security and improved intelligence; and build back up the community use of the area through events, diversionary activities and neighbourhood watch schemes.

How to report drugs issues

  • If you witness drug dealing or drug taking in your community, please report it to Thames Valley Police on their website. All information is useful, and everyone who makes a report will receive a call back from the taskforce within a few days - and then again after six weeks.
  • If you find a discarded needle in Oxford, please report it on our report needles page. All discarded needles will be picked up within one hour during office hours and within two hours outside office hours.
