Thames Valley Police - Neighbourhood Newsletter - May 2017

Here is the latest neighbourhood team newsletter from PCSO Rich Osborn.

‘You said we did’/ Priorities
Parking at the schools:  I am working with Sunningwell Primary School to try and resolve parking issues outside the school and along Dark Lane. Myself and the school will have a problem solving meeting and will be using the SARA (Scanning, Analysis, Response, Assess) model to look at the issues and how and what can be done to resolve it to the satisfaction of all parties.  

Anti-social behaviour (ASB): Reports of ASB in the area have decreased on the whole. However, there have been reports of criminal damage and vehicle interference to cars along Church Lane and North Street, Marcham. It appears to be happening at night. I have dropped letters off at most of the properties on both sides of the road to make people aware and to ask for witnesses. If anybody has any information please contact me by emailing or call 101. If you would like to remain anonymous you can post a note into the community shop (when it is closed) addressed to me, and they will pass it on.

Crime prevention advice
There have been two burglaries in our area, one at a home and one at the community hall. With the nicer weather upon us we will have our windows open and unlocked more. Please take a little more time to make sure that you have closed and locked your windows and doors. It is good practice to keep valuable items from view and to make a log of them. Making a note of any serial numbers, makes and models and taking photographs of your property will help us identify items if they are stolen and recovered, making it more likely to get them back.

What the neighbourhood team have been doing
I attended the Appleford fete with my crewmate PCSO Sue Haynes. We took a Police car which was very popular with the children who enjoyed sitting in it and having their pictures taken. The parents said this is the first and last time they would want to see their children in a Police car!

Abingdon Air Show
We will be at the Abingdon Air show on the 14th May with the rest of my team and the Police Cadets. If you are interested in joining the Police Cadets and are aged between 13 and 17, we will have our display trailer there with some interesting exhibits from the Thames Valley Police museum so please come and see us!
