September 2019 Update from your local policing team

Alert message sent 02/09/2019 08:38:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police


Neighbourhood Team
Your neighbourhood team consists of our new Sergeant Antony Mee,
PC Teresa Covey, PCSO Paul Dobbin, PCSO Sarah Puksis and PCSO Rhiannon Bugden

Neighbourhood Priorities

The priorities for your Neighbourhood Policing Team (NHPT) are decided by the Community Forum for the whole of South Bucks. This steering group is made up of local residents and representatives from organisations across the area. The forum is not run by the Police, although we do attend as representatives. This allows us to speak to a wide cross-section of the community, find out what you most want improved in the area and consider how we and others can accomplish these aims. The top three priorities are chosen by the forum every three months and are then assumed by your Neighbourhood Policing Team.

Priority One – Burglary

During the last three months there has been a 35% decrease in residential burglary offences. During the period June-August figures have fallen from 20 during the previous quarter to 13. Non dwelling burglaries have increased from 3 to 6 for this quarter.

However the nights will soon be drawing in so please remember to leave a light on and use your timer switches.

Priority Two – Anti Social Behaviour (ASB)

The main anti-social behaviour issue this summer has been multiple reports of youths riding noisy motorcycles’, scrambler bikes and quad bikes in Alderbourne Fields and the Denham car boot field without permission from the landowner. This was causing alarm, harassment and distress to some residents. The Neighbourhood Team and Response Officers have been deployed, sometimes several times per day, to the area, which is unsustainable. A S59 Warning was issued to one identified rider, however there are many other offenders and it is very difficult to catch them with no number plates displayed and the identity of the riders unknown, due to their faces being covered. Therefore in an effort to find a permanent solution, Thames Valley Police have liaised with Buckinghamshire County Council, who have erected fencing to close the gaps to the perimeter of the fields. We are already receiving feedback that this has worked and the motorcycles cannot gain access and complaints appear to have stopped.

Priority Three – Speeding

The NHT will continue to take the community speedwatch equipment out for a visible presence. Actual speed enforcement is carried out by our Roads Policing Department.

Other News

On Wednesday and Friday of this week Chiltern & South Bucks officers, along with our colleagues from British Transport Police (BTP), conducted a knife sweep operation in areas identified by local officers as to places where youth frequent. This was a pre-planned operation by the neighbourhood team to ensure the safety of local public spaces. This was not related to any specific incident.” Areas including East Common, Gerrard’s Cross, Hotspur Park, Beaconsfield and the BMX track in Denham were searched by officers looking for any bladed articles or other weapons. We also searched train stations with our BTP colleagues. This was not as a result of any incident, or intelligence but just to ensure that the areas searched have no items in them therefore ensuring the safety of everyone. We are happy to say other than a iPhone, a number of discarded tags and a courgette growing wild (!!) no items were found which is an excellent result.

Well done to Denham Green E-ACT Primary Academy who were this years’ winners of the South Bucks District Council Community Cards Scheme. Community Cards is a sticker-collecting scheme encouraging Year 6 pupils to get involved with activities, care for their community, be safe and engage with local community organisations. The aim of the scheme is for children in class groups to collect the most stickers per child and win a number of class and individual prizes. The reward for this competition was for the Year 6 students to attend a day out at LEGOLAND Windsor. PCSO’s Sarah Puksis and Rhiannon Bugden also attended this day out as they had assisted the students with their tasks.
