Police update for December
During November we have had to say goodbye to PCSO David Jones as he has now moved to the Abbey and Ryemead Neighbourhood.
However PC Craig Duncan and I are still your dedicated neighbourhood officers. Please come and talk to us if you see us walking around!
1. Anti Social Behaviour (ASB) – The hotspot locations for ASB at the moment are focused around St. James Park where quad bikes have been sighted and youths are gathering. School Close where there have been quad bikes and mini moto’s sighted and The Pastures Flats where groups of youths are congregating. The neighbourhood team are aware of all these ongoing issues and are also aware of certain addresses and have issued police warnings to particular individuals regarding their use of these vehicles. The dedicated ASB car still remains on duty every night and continues to respond to any form of ASB across Wycombe Local Police Area (LPA). If you are affected by any ASB issues please call 101.
2. Parking – This still remains a concern for Downley and Disraeli, especially during school times. The Downley School will be holding a Park Awareness Week commencing 8th December where leaflets will be handed out by pupils to raise awareness to parents about parking along pavements.
3. Speeding – Hughenden Avenue, Hithercroft Road, Coates Lane, The Pastures and Plomer Hill are our roads of concern.
The Parish Council’s Vehicle Activated Sign which will be used for traffic monitoring on roads highlighted to be of immediate concern.
The new speed device in operation on Hughenden Avenue has received positive feedback.
Theft from Vehicles
The main concern to Downley and Disraeli is theft from vehicles. A van has been broken into on Gibbs Close where remote controlled flying equipment and model helicopters have been taken. An Audi A1 has had its window smashed whilst parked on Garratts Way however nothing was taken. A front number plate has been taken from a vehicle parked in Wyatt’s Close. A Toyota Yaris has had a window smashed and a laptop taken from the boot whilst parked on Cumbrian Way. A Mercedes has been broken into on Southview where a messy search has occurred and items taken from inside. Theft of Vehicle There has been one reported incident where a black Seat Alhambra has been stolen from a driveway on Hughenden Avenue.
There has been a noticeable increase in burglaries across Wycombe LPA during November. There have been no reported burglaries to houses in Downley or Disraeli. However there has been one report of a quad bike being stolen from a detached garage on Hithercroft Road. I would just like to stress the importance of keeping your homes secure during the winter period, try to keep some form of light on in your property if it is empty and ensure all windows and doors are locked.
A neighbourhood initiative this year is to raise awareness of burglaries and dedicated officers are patrolling hotspot locations and conducting reassurance patrols every day. If you see anything suspicious please do not hesitate to call us.
Disraeli Neighbourhood Action Group (NAG)
The second meeting for the Disraeli NAG is being held on the 1st December at 8pm in the Pastures Church. Here we will be discussing the points of concern raised in the last meeting which was a huge success. Please come along to this next meeting where I (PCSO Jennifer Weaver) will be attending alongside many other agencies and residents.
