If anyone knows any further information, or sees anything suspicious, please contact us on 101. Theft from Vehicles This month there have not been any incidents of Thefts from, Vehicles.

However the team would still like to stress the importance of keeping vehicles safe, especially when parked on the road and removing any valuables from sight to avoid the opportunistic criminals. 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. Theft of Motor Vehicles This month has seen a marked increase in Thefts of Motorcycles from Littleworth Road, The Pastures Service Road and the top end of Plomer Green Lane; these all appeared to take place over the course of 4 days. We have managed to recover two of the motorcycles which is very positive news, and we have gained some CCTV footage relating to one of the thefts.

If you or someone you know has information about any thefts of motorcycles or you happen to see something suspicious, please let us know on the 101 line. Burglaries This month has unfortunately had one burglary of a garage on Hithercroft Road, where two classic motorcycles were stolen. We have had some intelligence surrounding this incident which we are currently investigating. The nights are now drawing in and the evenings will be getting dramatically darker. Over the past few days we have been handing out leaflets in supermarkets and large stores to try and raise awareness of methods you can use to keep your homes safe. The team would like to stress the importance of paying attention to the guidance around keeping homes lit, alarms activated and valuables removed from the view of people walking past.

If anyone sees anything suspicious, please let us know on 101. 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. Friday September 6th- Cross Court Tesco Express- 16:00-17:00hours Friday September 13th- Cross Court Tesco Express- 16:00-17:00hours Monday September 23rd- Community Centre- 11:00-12:00hours 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.
