Reduce anti-social behaviour across the beat area

Reduce speeding across the beat

§  Woolton Hill Community Speedwatch have now received their Speedwatch kit and have begun training volunteers and then the team can begin checking for speeders across the area.

§  Officers are planning additional speed enforcement across the beat and will advise the results, which will be published monthly.

§  If you are concerned about speeding please address this with your local parish council or directly with me. Parish councils can make us aware of places in need of speed enforcement and these can then be added to our approved list of sites for enforcement.

 

Other incidents of note

§  Attempted theft – Oxdrove, BURGHCLERE – between the 4th and 7th January, unknown offenders have entered the garden of a property on Oxdrove, they forced a bronze statue from its concrete plinth. They have moved the statue but discarded it elsewhere in the garden.

The footpath is located along the Ecchinswell – Kingsclere road. Signs have been placed along this footpath appealing for witnesses and have been removed on several occasions, we suspect the offender is removing these also and this could amount to theft.

§  Criminal Damage – Knights Lane – Between the 15th and 16th of January an offender has caused damage to a parked vehicle. It appears as though the damage has been caused by a key or similar implement.

§  Theft from a vehicle – A vehicle parked at Beacon Hill on the 25th January was targeted by thieves. The rear window was smashed and a bag removed.

There are 3 new policing priorities for the area of Basingstoke and Deane, these are areas to which the neighbourhood team will aim to pay extra attention. The priorities are decided through public consultation via an online survey. I will send out a reminder via Hampshire Alerts (which I have provided sign up details for) when this is due for revision.

The current priorities are…

1:Speeding/Traffic issues – We continue with the speed enforcement van attending at fairly regular intervals. In other areas across the ward we have community Speedwatch schemes, these help to raise awareness of speed and encourage speeders to slow down in 30mph zones.

Highclere and East Woodhay have an existing Speedwatch scheme. Due to unforeseen circumstances, training is on hold for Highclere volunteers but this will be resolved as soon as possible.

We ask that residents remember that those taking part in Speedwatch are volunteers, they are working in collaboration with Hampshire Constabulary to increase awareness of speed and improve road safety for all members of the community. We do not accept any abusive language directed towards volunteers or threatening behaviour. Incidents reported to us will be dealt with accordingly.

2:Burglary (Non Dwelling) – This area has seen an increase in non dwelling type burglaries. There were 7 such incidents in April in this area and 16 across the ward.

We urge people to take steps to ensure garage and shed security. Businesses should consider alarms and CCTV, this should also be a key priority at Farms. It is important to raise awareness of this in the area to encourage people to prevent this at their properties. Spread the word and feel free to contact Abbey for advice.

3:Burglary (Dwelling) – Although this is uncommon in our area usually, we have seen 3 this month. Details to follow.

Incidents of note

§  01/04/2015 – Dwelling Burglary – Rural property in the region of Hollington Targeted during daylight hours. Antique Jewellery has been stolen from the address.

§  09/04/2015 – Dwelling Burglary – Paddock End, Woolton Hill. In the days leading up to the report date, offenders have stolen keys belonging to the victim. Offenders have returned and have stolen an AUDI Q7 from the driveway.

§  07/04/2015 – 11/04/2015 – Dwelling Burglary – Between the stated times, offenders have reached in through an open window of a property and have stolen a model train.

§  In the areas of Newtown Common, Adbury, Bishops Green and Tothill – Vehicles continue to be targeted by thieves who have been trying door handles to vehicles, when discovered open they have then carried out untidy searches. We have also had incident where damage has been caused to vehicles to gain entry. This is often due to items being left on display. PLEASE remove all valuables from your vehicles even when parked at your home address at night. Please lock your car doors and double check that the locking mechanism has worked.

Suspicious incidents – There are good numbers of these incidents reported by local residents and we encourage people to continue these reports. Sometimes this information can be extremely valuable and can assist in solving crimes. Always dial 101 to report non emergencies .

As the summer is now upon us I would like to draw your attention to potential burglaries. At this time windows and doors (front and back) are left open to allow a pleasant through breeze….however, what isn’t pleasant is the thieves that sometimes flow through as well! Please be extra vigilant as thieves will take any opportunity to duck into your house even if you have just popped upstairs; they can be in and out without you knowing. If you are not in the room keep the doors closed and windows at least on a security latch. If going out please close ALL WINDOWS.

Also a common occurrence is distraction burglary. You could be enjoying the sun in your back garden and there’s a knock at the front door. You go to answer and naturally you don’t think to close the back door or even bring in the computer tablet you were on while sunning yourself….as a result while you are talking to the person at the door, his friend has jumped over your fence and steals whatever they can!

Summary

Again this month we have seen a number of non-dwelling breaks (Outbuildings). As I have suggested already above please take extra precautions in protecting your belongings. If of high value is there somewhere more secure it could be kept like in the house? Consider Installing sensor lighting, shed alarms or sensor alarms to make it less easy or indeed appealing to would be thieves. Reinforced locks would also help. If you are unsure what to get or are a little baffled by all the different kit available please don’t hesitate to contact me and I’ll be happy to come round for a chat and discuss options available at affordable prices. It’s a good idea to get all expensive equipment registered with https://www.immobilise.com/ a free service that will make any recovered equipment by Police easier to re-unite with the owner. Alternatively, I have UV marker pens which can be used to label up property. When property is recovered and it’s marked with a postcode we can then use our database to see if anything has been stolen form that area and again return the item to the owner. Please let me know if you require any.

On another note this month I have been carrying out a lot of Speed Enforcement outside Woolton Hill Junior School and also on the A343 through Highclere, hopefully some of you may have seen me or the van. This has proved extremely effective and whilst speeding is something that can never be fully eradicated I will continue to do this as much as possible. I of course won’t be tied to these locations I will be moving about throughout the beat area liaising with the Community Speedwatch Teams.

Summary

This month we have begun to see a rise in the number of poaching incidents on rural lands. Please keep an eye out for any vehicles possibly containing multiple male occupants with dogs acting suspiciously around rural areas and farmlands. It could be perfectly incident but it’s better it’s reported so we investigate it.

Also, I’d just like to reiterate from last month’s report about bogus callers claiming to be from the Police fraud squad requesting individuals to withdraw substantial amounts of cash from banks. Although we haven’t had any calls on it this month in our area I have heard from my counterpart across the border that this is still happening. If you would like any advice or are concerned about any people you would consider to be vulnerable please let me know and I’ll be happy to call in for a chat
