Wallingford / Berinsfield / Cholsey neighbourhood
Local priorities - 'You said, We did'
The following priorities have been identified by the community and the police:
You said: Bilking (making off without payment)
The BP Service Station continues to the victim of Bilking offences where motorists are not paying for the fuel taken.
The neighbourhood team have been visiting the service station on a regular basis to provide reassurance. A crime reduction survey will be completed which will include suggestions of target hardening and crime prevention advice to deter further offending at the location for example adequate signage indicating that offenders will be prosecuted. The neighbourhood team will work closely with the staff to make a system is in place to communicate and report incidents.
You said: Autocrime
Including theft from vehicle, theft of vehicle and interference of vehicle. Wallingford 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.
You said: Burglary
Over the last few months there has been an increase in this type of crime in Aston Upthorpe and Aston Tirrold with one dwelling burglary, five shed/garage break-ins and two motor vehicle offences.
The neighbourhood team have continued with high-visibility patrols in the affected areas. ‘Have You Say’ meetings are being arranged and communicated to the public so they have a chance to voice any concerns and feel reassured. The team will be proactively signing up as many residents to the Thames Valley Alerts system allowing a greater communication about crimes and asking for potential witnesses to any of the crimes.
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.
