NEXT:- YET ANOTHER SEXTORTION – THIS TIME A YOUNG TEENAGER.

The contact began last Thursday.  A young teenager was chatting to girl on Snap Chat and Instagram.  She told him, she lived in America.  She then sent topless photos to him and they carried on communicating.

On Monday, she sent nude photos of herself to him - and told him now ‘it was his turn’.  He took intimate photos of himself and sent them to her. He also sent her a short intimate video.  He also, then sent further images.

The girl immediately created group chats on both Apps, consisting of his friends and family.

She then demanded £800 and that if he didn’t pay the money, she would publish the photos of him, to all his contacts.  He replied that he didn't have the money and he sent her £31.00 gift card.

He has been advised to close down all his social media and change his passwords.

AS ALWAYS - DO NOT SAY, WRITE, DO, PHOTOGRAPH, VIDEO ANYTHING ONLINE OR IN A TEXT -……… YOU WOULD NOT BE HAPPY FOR YOUR FAMILY, RELATIVES, FRIENDS, WORK COLLEAGUES – EMPLOYER – TO SEE.

YOU KNOW IT MAKES SENSE


NEXT: NOTTINGHAM KNOCKERS REPORTED IN BATTLEMEAD CLOSE, LEIGHTON GARDENS, BOYNE HILL ROAD, RUTLAND ROAD, PORTLOCK ROAD, POWNEY ROAD, GRINGER HILL, ELTON DRIVE, BIX LANE, SWITCHBACK ROAD SOUTH.  Reports of a young lad going door to door and being turned away.  Several reports that he was drunk and loud.  He told one householder he was just out of the army another that he was on a prisoner rehab scheme.

PLEASE REMEMBER – The only items which can be sold door to door – WITHOUT A PEDLARS CERTIFICATE – are books and food.  For everything else, the sales person needs a Pedlars Certificate.  A small white form about 4’’ square, issued by the police.  The police will only issue these to ‘people of good character’ – so – the minute they say they are just out of prison …..you know they will not have one.  If they say they are on a ‘rehabilitation project’ – again, you know they don’t have one.  What they will show you is an A4 yellow ‘Hawkers Identification’.  This document is meaningless and they have just made it up and printed it out.

REMEMBER THE COMMUNITY WATCH MOTTO:

I AM SORRY, I DO NOT BUY GOODS AND SERVICES AT THE DOOR. 
Then firmly but politely close and lock the front door.

They are trying to locate potential scam victims.  Single, lone, vulnerable, females, easily parted from their cash !  Many thanks to all of you that took the trouble to phone us letting us know where they were.

NEXT: THERE HAVE BEEN A LOT OF QUESTIONS RAISED RE COMMUNITY SPEEDWATCH.  THIS IS THE CURRENT POSITION:

The new procedure in now up and running.  The police will no longer be involved – other than sending the educational letters.

THE NEW PROCEDURE IS AS FOLLOWS:

If you believe there is speeding occurring in your road, you need to set up a ‘Community SpeedWatch Executive Committee’ of at least 3 residents from your road.  There cannot be an overarching area CSW ‘committee’.  The police & Crime Commissioner emphasises, this is ‘Community’ SpeedWatch and must be totally managed by – ‘the community’.

The Executive Committee, registers their proposed scheme on the CSW Website:

https://www.communityspeedwatch.org/FRONT-v2-Home.php

On the website, they register their members and upload from Google Earth, StreetView (it is very simple – it is within the CSW website) the road they wish to monitor and the exact location of the spot they wish to use to monitor speeding cars.  There are restrictions – a dangerous location / a bend in the road with interferes with readings etc.  A TVP staff member allocated to supporting CSW, examines the information and either permits the scheme, or suggest more suitable locations after carrying out a risk assessment.

If the scheme is approved, details are provided about the equipment required.  The PCC has provided a few sets of equipment for schemes to borrow for up to 6 months.

If none are available, roads can purchase their own – A Bushnell 101911 radar gun – the approved hand held speed indicator device costs about £180 from major online stores.  The website contains full details of what is required.

Once the scheme is approved and the necessary equipment purchased / borrowed, the road can carry out as many CSWs as they wish, when they wish.  The only prohibition is they cannot be carried out in the dark.

PHASE 1:

A CSW requires at least 3 people on the roadside:
One person uses the speedgun and calls out the speed
A second person takes down the index of the car
A Third member writes down a brief description of the make model and colour of the car.
Often, you may need more people.  If the road is busy.

The information is written down on a sheet printed out from the website.  Cars exceeding the 30 mph limit by 3 mph are recorded.  There are similar recording limits for other speed limits in the road.

One of the Executive Committee, then enters the data into the website.  The website automatically creates letters for the offender registered owners of the vehicles recorded.  These are printed and posted out from any police station within TVP.  The fact that a letter has been sent is also recorded in PNC (The Police National Computer) against that registered owner and vehicle.

The letter is part of an education programme and no fines are issued.  If the car is recorded a second time, the website sends out a more severe letter.  If the index is recorded a third time, a police officer is dispatched to speak to the registered owner face to face !

Phase 2:

If after 6 months, there is still an issue, the matter is handed over to Neighbourhood Police Officers, who carry out Speed Enforcement, including the issuing of fines a tickets.

Phase 3:

If after a further 6 months of police involvement, the data is handed over to the local Authority Highways department and the police Traffic Team for a final resolution and traffic calming measures.

The website is easy to access and contains all the necessary information you will need to set up, manage and run a scheme.

BEST OF LUCK – OVER TO YOU !
