Neighbourhood Policing Team

Here is the latest neighbourhood update from your Wendover and Aston Clinton Neighbourhood Team. Neighbourhood update Your team now consists of PS Russ McFarlane, PC Thom Piercy and PCSO Peter Hall, covering all of the villages as before. If you require any assistance when the team are not on duty, please visit the Neighbourhood Engagement Point at Wendover Community Library on Tuesday with Brian and Thursday with Carolyn between 10-12pm. Alternatively, please call 101 if the incident is not an emergency and 999 if it is. We are still experiencing some issues surrounding the Ponyfield camp in Weston Turville. Since the positive intervention that took place in February, the frequency of anti-social behaviour (ASB) and criminal damage reports has reduced. We are still working on long term plans and had a multi-agency meeting recently at AVDC with our partner agencies to get some strategies in place including site visits from Planning and the GRT education officer Karen Ross is visiting families to sign up the children, who are causing a lot of the issues, into the education system. This issue will not be a quick fix, it will take time and co-operation from residents of Weston Turville is key. Please report crime to us and not keep it private on the Everything Weston Turville Facebook group. Overall, incidents related to the site have reduced a lot. We have also launched a Facebook page to allow better engagement, please search for TVP Aylesbury and it should appear. Give us a like, send us messages and tell us what you want to see on the page. You can also follow the team on twitter @TVP_Aylesbury or by using the hashtag #TVPRural to search and see what the rural team are up to. “You said, we did” local priorities You said “There is an increase in youth anti-social behaviour (ASB) within Weston Turville” PC Piercy took three children from the Ponyfields site into Police Protection in February. These males were identified as offenders in the ASB and criminal damage being caused during an incident. Due to their age and lack of supervision while committing criminal offences, Social Services are now involved with them and their family to deter this behaviour. Multi-agency meetings are ongoing to secure long term success on solving this problem. You said “Improve Police visibility” The team have been patrolling Weston Turville around the times when the incidents were reported. We have been on foot and in our marked vehicle and speaking to local residents. We have communicated with many residents via email and social media to best understand your needs and concerns. Please see the Have Your Say dates as PCSO Hall will be in the village for you all to speak to.

Local crime update Over the last month below is a breakdown of some of the offences which occurred.

Vehicle crime is steady at the moment but please be vigilant and check your vehicle is locked and no cables or devices are on display, make sure you wipe any sat-nav suction marks off the screen too. Please visit the Home Office website for crime statistics in your area at: (opens new window) Please note that the crime statistics on this site show only those crimes that have been reported to Thames Valley Police. The number of recorded crimes may change over time due to requirements under Home Office Counting Rules to make sure that each crime is recorded accurately. If you see anything suspicious no matter how small of insignificant it may seem, if you think it’s not right or someone looks out of place please call us on 999 if it is a crime in progress or 101 if you have information. You can also email the team at Wendover& Crime prevention advice The last month has seen a decline in burglaries, so this month we have provided some advice to keep this figure low. 

  

When leaving your property ensure all windows and doors are locked. During warmer days it is easy to forget that a window is still open, so just take that extra minute or so to walk around and make sure everything is closed and secure. If you have a UPVC front door make sure it is deadlocked. Just lifting the handle doesn’t engage the locks you need to lift the handle and lock the door. Arm your burglar alarm. Your neighbours may not check when it’s going off but we will.* Lock your back gate and remove any tools from the garden which could be used to force entry.

   

If you are going away ask one of your neighbours to move your post. If a burglar sees lots of post piling up by the front door they may come and have a look through your window. Put any keys and electrical items such as ipads and laptops away and out of view. Ensure that any security lights are in working order. Fit timer switches to lamps so that they can be programmed to come on during the hours of darkness. If you haven’t got any contact the team and we can get some to you. Marking property with postcodes on all valuable items with a permanent marker, UV pen or with a property marking solution from companies such as Smart water, Selecta DNA or Crimestoppers.
