TVP Neighbourhood Update for June
The May monthly update for Downley and Disraeli is brought to you by PCSO C6651 David JONES.
This month we haven’t had any changes to the team, although at the end of June I am happy to let you know that PCSO C8841 Jennifer WEAVER will becoming a full time PCSO. PC 586 Colin BEDFORD and PC 7336 John O’CALLAGHAN are still policing the area. Myself and PCSO C8841 Jennifer WEAVER are still out showing presence on foot. If you see any of us on the beat, feel free to speak to us.
We had a burglary along Garratts Way this month, please can you all be vigilant and let us know if anyone is acting suspicious.
Criminal Damage and Thefts from Motor vehicles
High Wycombe is being hit hard at the moment with thefts and criminal damage to cars, please remember not to leave anything on display!
The Clear Car Campaign will continue to run and we will be performing spot checks on vehicles parked on the side of roads, letters will be sent to owners reminding them not to leave items visible.
The ASB within the Pastures flats is still on-going. We would advise the residents to call in whenever they have an incident of large groups of people hanging out in the communal areas. This would enable us to increase the patrols in the area of the NHPT and other police officers.
We have recently had a meeting with Red kite and we are discussing options with them on how to make life easier for local residents..
Our speed and ANPR operation was a complete success, so much so we are planning another one this month. Keep that speed down.
Neighbourhood Action Groups(NAG)
This year we will be trying to start up two local NAG groups one for Downley and one for Disraeli residents, as feedback from local residents would suggest that this would be more successful. We intend to be holding two open evenings to discuss forming the NAG’s. Times, dates and locations to be arranged.
Neighbourhood Action Groups (NAGs) are a key part of Neighbourhood Policing in Thames Valley.
A NAG is a multi-agency, problem-solving group that consists of relevant partner agencies, key stakeholders and, most importantly, members of the local community.
NAGs focus their work around the main priorities that are identified after consultation with the local community. Members, who are all volunteers, take on responsibility for achieving certain tasks on behalf of their neighbourhood.
What’s in it for me?
There are several benefits to you in getting involved in your local NAG. As a member of your NAG, you can:
- Influence decisions and encourage action on issues that matter to people in your neighbourhood.
- Have chances to change things for the better in your neighbourhood.
- Gain a sense of satisfaction in making a difference to local quality of life.
- Add something valuable to your CV – working as part of your NAG can demonstrate lots of skills to a prospective employer.
- Work together with key partner agencies.
How do I get involved?
For more information about getting involved in your local NAG, please call 101, the Thames Valley Police non-emergency number. Ask to speak to a representative from your local Neighbourhood Policing team. Or you can enquire about joining your local NAG by visiting your local police station.
