September 20 latest Burnham Farnhams Taplow and Dorney policing update

Alert message sent 18/08/2020 10:27:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Burnham/Farnham’s/Taplow & Dorney

Neighbourhood Priorities

Priority One – Burglary

This quarter we have seen a decrease in residential burglaries from 25 to 24, seventeen of these related to shed/garage breaks.

Make sure you lock the door with a key once inside the house, remove all keys from the lock as well as double locking doors to stop burglars ‘fishing’ for keys.

Make sure that UPVC doors are double locked whilst in the property and windows are not left open.

At this time of year the nights are starting to draw in so please make sure your home looks occupied, use timer switches on lights and televisions to give this impression.

Keep cash and other valuables out of sight.

Trim back any hedges or plants that a burglar could hide behind and make sure side gates and back windows are secure.

Property mark your high value items with your postcode and house number.

Finally report any suspicious behaviour on the 101 non-emergency number or if a burglary in progress then call 999.

Priority Two – Anti Social Behaviour (ASB)

Dorney Lake, Dorney

Since Dorney Lake had authority to close its gates whilst essential work was being done to protect the area and the community, it has brought a peaceful environment to all. The team would like to thank the community personally for their ongoing support and patience whilst we worked and continue to work towards a solution. Ultimately, Thames Valley Police did not want to take anything away from the community, although felt it was essential for us to support the Lake’s decision to close to prevent any harm coming to anyone.

A decision has not been made yet as to how the Lake will reopen, and a request for involvement in this decision to continue to help the community. We truly hope we are not faced with similar scenes to what we did in the Summer of 2020 or previous years and we will do all we can to support the lake and the Community so we don’t face that challenge again. We really recognise the efforts made by the lake, which hopefully we will see the improvements in the coming months, years and so on.

Generally, Dorney is a very quiet and peaceful location, We would urge anyone who has concerns about suspicious behaviour, anti-social behaviour and obstructive parking to keep us informed via 101 or 999 in an emergency or when a crime is in progress.

St Peters Park, Burnham

We have had reports of Anti-Social Behaviour and criminal damage in St Peters Park and the Stomping Ground. If you experience or see anything kind of Anti-Social incidents occurring then please call Police on 101 or 999 if criminal damage is occurring at the time. We will be conducting patrols around these areas.

River Road/Mill Lane, Taplow

The NH team have been working closely with residents and Council to try to resolve issues of anti-social behaviour (ASB) around River Road and Mill Lane, Taplow. Due to COVID19 and the recent heatwave there has been an increase of visitors to these locations. The South Bucks Community Safety Team at Buckinghamshire Council have arranged for daily litter collections and repairs in the area. The NH are continuing to patrol on a regular basis.

Priority Three – Speeding

The NH Teams have been out and about across the area carrying out speeding operations. In addition we now have two very active Community Speed Watch teams.

This is a great opportunity for residents who wish to volunteer their time to monitor speeding in areas highlighted for concern by fellow residents. If you are interested in helping out then please contact the team or your local Parish Council.
