Neighbourhood policing newsletter

Alert message sent 07/09/2017 14:35:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Here is the latest neighbourhood update from PCSO Rich Osborn.

Anti-social behaviour (ASB)
I have been receiving reports of ASB and criminal damage in Marcham. Reports include broken windows, and garden items and signs being moved to other areas. We have increased patrols especially in the evenings and early hours when the ASB is occurring.

A brown sofa has appeared on the grassed area at the bottom of Abbotts Grange, whilst it nice to see the young people of the village enjoying the open spaces of the village it would be appreciated if they took their litter away with them. I have spoken to the Environmental health team because it is private land and the sofa cannot be removed at public expense, it is down to the land owners to do this. 
Offenders brought to justice
On Friday 25th August, a wanted male was arrested for eight theft offences across the area, including one that had taken place in Abingdon. The male has been released under investigation whilst further enquiries are completed. He was targeting the older members of our community. Please do not take out more money that you need and keep your purse secure.

Back to school! 
Now the schools have gone back can I remind you about parking outside the schools?  I understand that you may have multiple drop-offs or have to get to work but if everybody is considerate about their parking it will make it a lot safer for the children. Please do not park on the zig zags, pedestrian crossings or block drive ways and paths.

Key Individual Network (KIN)
We are looking for people to join the KIN list for our area to help local policing respond to issues affecting our community. 

Who could be in a KIN?
A  KIN is someone or a group of people who represent a community in their local area. This could be anyone from a landowner, teacher or shop keeper, to a church leader, support group, chairperson of a women’s group or a friend of someone who has a disability.

What is involved?
The role of a KIN involves a person or group acting as a representative of the community unit they belong to in the local area they live. As a KIN, we may consult you from time to time on issues relevant to the particular community group you represent. I have been speaking to people that I think would suitable for our KIN list but please let me know if you and feel you could help us. Thank you.

Future events/meeting
Please come and meet me at the following times and discuss any local issues or concerns you may have, or if you would like to discuss the KIN list further: 
Thursday 14 September 2017 at Wootton Community Centre, 10am – 11am.
Saturday 16 September 2017 at Marcham Community Shop, 10am -11am.
