Anti-social behaviour (ASB)
We have continued to receive reports about graffiti damage on residential fencing, roads and pavements around Sonning Common. The Neighbourhood Policing Team increased high visibility patrols around the areas that were affected by this damage. Information gathered led to two local males who were consequently brought in for voluntary interviews. We have now seen a reduction in ASB reports in Sonning Common.
Following graffiti at the lawn area of the Red Lion Hotel in Henley the team have issued Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) Contracts and warning letters to some of the young people who have been responsible for ASB. We understand that ASB has an impact on the community and we want to reassure people that anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated and we will endeavour to resolve this problem for the long term. We ask that residents keep on reporting ASB to us using 101 or 999 in an emergency as soon as they see or hear it. We can only respond to what we know about.
What the neighbourhood team have been doing
• Continued pro-active patrols around our hot spot areas including around the Henley College area.
• PCSO Graham Davey visited Badgemore School to talk to the reception year about what our role involves.
• PCSO Claire Hewett was out on Gainsborough Estate assisting with the litter pick. PCSOs have been out with the Speed Indication Device (SID) in and around Henley.
• PCSO Mark Bell and PCSO Ruth Hand attended the Ways and Means Trust on Manor Farm and will hope to assist them with some charity fundraising in the future.
• The team have been out with Trading Standards again relating to Fly Tipping in the area. The operation was very successful with many vehicles pulled over and dealt with by Trading Standards.
Rural Crime Campaign
Thames Valley Police led a Rural Crime Campaign during February. The campaign targeted rural crime affecting rural businesses and farms in our region particularly burglaries at non-residential properties such as farm outbuildings, storage units and stables. Henley Neighbourhood Officers were involved in the campaign that included night time patrols and reassurance. For more information please visit www.thamesvalley.police.uk .
