Local priorities - 'You said, We did'
The following priorities have been identified by the community and the police:
You said: Anti-social behaviour (ASB)
You said that there was a problem with ASB at the Wave Leisure Centre, Didcot.
Police have conducted intelligence led patrols and taken a zero tolerance to any criminal activity. Suspects have been convicted and ASB contracts have been given out to repeat offenders along with banning letters. We are pleased to report that since we have taken these proactive steps to reduce the ASB the number of offences have decreased. We are continuing to work with the leisure centre to further decrease and deter offences and an improved CCTV now covers both the internal and external parts of the centre.
You said: Burglary non-dwelling
Didcot continues to have a fluctuation of crime relating to non-dwelling burglaries, which essentially do not have any patterns regarding times and location of the offences. Premises normally targeted are sheds/garages and similar, and also some local shops.
The Neighbourhood team have been carrying out high visibility patrols on a regular basis, to the areas concerned to provide reassurance to the public and help deter further offences. We are working closely with partner agencies and organising days of action/crime reduction events. These events are aimed at giving the public advice on how to secure their outbuildings and sign them up to Thames Valley Alerts and Neighbourhood Watch in order to communicate and gather intelligence on these crimes.
You said: Autocrime
Including theft from vehicle, theft of vehicle and interference of vehicle. Didcot continues to have a fluctuation of crime which essentially does not have any patterns regarding times and locations of the offences.
We are carrying our high-visibility patrols around the affected areas to provide public reassurance and to deter further offending. We are working with partner agencies and maximising the use of CCTV to try and identify offenders. Officers are proactively signing members of the public up to Thames Valley Alerts to increase communication about crimes and bring potential witnesses forward.
These are being dealt with by your neighbourhood policing team in partnership with residents and other agencies. Progress will be reported in the Neighbourhood updates.
