New Section 60 Order enacted in Slough

Alert message sent 29/09/2019 14:28:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police


A new section 60 order has been enacted following a number of incidents which have taken place in Slough recently.
This Section 60 order applies to the entire Borough of Slough starts from 2pm today (29/9) until 1.59pm on Monday (30/9). It follows a Section 60 order which was enacted on Friday (27/9).  
This order and the previous order were put in place following the murder of Elton Gashaj in Salt Hill Park on Saturday (21/9) and the stabbing of a man in Station Road in the Langley area of Slough on Wednesday (25/9).
LPA Commander for Slough, Superintendent Sarah Grahame, said: “Members of the community will understandably be concerned about these recent events. I would like to reassure the public that these incidents are taken extremely seriously.
“If anyone has any information, please get in touch by calling 101 or make a report online.”
“Alternatively, if you wish to remain anonymous, you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
 “Officers will be using their stop and search powers as part of their patrols in Slough. Please do not be worried if you are stopped by an officer. Being stopped and searched does not mean you are in trouble, it is just one method that we use to ensure weapons are kept off our streets.
“A Section 60 order temporarily allows officers greater powers to stop and search in relation to items connected with violence in a defined location.
“Officers will be using this power in order to keep our streets safe from weapons.
“Please feel free to speak to officers if you have any concerns.”
