The community Policing priorities for this area are :

  • Thefts from sheds & outbuildings (including theft of metal)
  • Anti – Social Behaviour
  • Speeding

Prevent thefts from garages, sheds and outbuildings(including theft of metal)

  • A shed in the Penwood area was broken into and garden machinery was stolen.
  • An attempt was made to break into three adjoined outbuildings in Dunley. Fortunately nothing was stolen.

 Reduce anti-social behaviour especially around Bishops Green

  • We have had very low levels of anti-social behaviour in November with very few incidents being reported.
  • A new Community Safety Partnership has been set up between the Police, Sentinel Housing, Sovereign Kingfisher Housing, the Bishops Green Community Association, the Bishops Green Youth Project and Basingstoke and Deane Council. This Community Safety Partnership has been set up to ensure that any problems or issues in the area, particularly anti-social behaviour, are addressed and investigated properly and thoroughly by all agencies that can help.

Reduce speeding across the beat

  • Over the past few months a camera van has attended the area on more than one occasion, particularly targeting the A343 at Highclere.

28 vehicles were captured driving over the speed limit and prosecuted. 

Other incidents of note
  • Three properties in Broadlayings, Woolton Hill were broken into via the rear patio doors. On each occasion jewellery was stolen.
      Please ensure that you lock all windows and doors. We believe that these houses were targeted as they were in darkness. During these dark evenings it is obvious when nobody is home. A fairly inexpensive solution to this is light timer switches. These set your lights to turn on and off at specific times, creating the illusion that somebody is home. We also strongly recommend investing in a house alarm.
  • A grey BMW X5 was stolen from the East End area.
  • An green Kawasaki off road motorcycle was stolen from the Bishops Green area.
  • Four persons have been prosecuted for possession of drugs.
  • A bicycle was stolen from the Wash Water area.
  • There was a house burglary in Bishops Green where multiple items were stolen.
       Two males from the Tadley area have been arrested and charged in relation to this Burglary. They are currently in custody awaiting trial.
      A big thanks to everyone involved in Neighbourhood Watch. We have received lots of information this month in relation to various incidents. This ranges from information that has helped us with our enquires, to suspicious people or vehicles in the area. All has   been very helpful.

Please contact us if you have any questions.
