TVP Neighbourhood update for October available

The October monthly update for Downley and Disraeli is brought to you by PCSO C6651 David JONES.

This month PC 586 Colin BEDFORD, PCSO C8841 Jennifer WEAVER and I are out showing presence on foot. If you see any of us on the beat, feel free to speak to us as the information you have may be invaluable. Thankfully it has been a quiet month in Downley and Disraeli Parking issues We have had reports of the parking down Hughenden Avenue again. This is more than likely due to the students heading back to University. Please give us a call when you find these incidents. Speeding I’ve been told of some speeding down Pheasant Drive and Telford way. I will be running a Speeding Operation in the area of Downley and Disraeli this month with the speed gun. Hopefully this will stop these problems.

Neighbourhood Action Group

Due to the lack of residents wishing to begin a NAG in both Downley and Disraeli, we are discussing the idea of having one joint NAG to combine both residential areas. This is more beneficial for us as we police the entirety of Downley and Disraeli, where issues being discussed will be important to all residents. However, in the mean time we will continue to conduct ‘Have Your Say’ Meetings at Cross Court Tesco Express and the Community Centre. Below are a few dates to consider if you wish to talk to us about any issues concerning you. Monday 7th October - Community Centre- 10:00-11:00hours Saturday 12th October - Cross Court Tesco Express- 12:00 – 13:00 Hours Wednesday 23rdOctober - Community Centre- 11:00-12:00hours In brief; Neighborhood 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.
