Windsor West neighbourhood
Local priorities - 'You said, We did'
The following priorities have been identified by the community and the police:
You said: Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB)
Residents have a concern over anti-social behaviour in the area.
We have been working in conjunction with partner agencies to target and identify offenders using mopeds in an anti-social manner. We have worked with local schools on a Safer School Programme to deliver advice, reduce offending and encourage personal responsibility whilst also highlighting the consequences of criminal behaviour. Alongside our Housing Association colleagues we have been identifying those causing local problems and reducing levels of offending.
You said: Burglary and Theft
Residents expressed some concern around burglaries and theft in the area.
Working with our partners the Community Wardens, we organised a Burglary Road show in Tesco, Dedworth Road. Whilst there we handed out crime prevention material and gave owners advice on securing their homes. The Neighbourhood team also visited victims of burglary and offered reassurance and advice to prevent them becoming repeat victims. We then extended this to cover surrounding homes where we again delivered crime prevention advice on keeping homes and property secure. We are in the process of organising a road show for allotment users where we hope to carry out tool marking to prevent them becoming victims of crime. Our recent Clear Car campaign saw us targeting vehicles where items were left on display inside such as Sat Navs. We left letters on the vehicles warning owners of the danger of leaving valuable items on display.
You said: Serious acquisitive crime.
The local community had a concern regarding serious acquisitive crime.
1. Working with our Partner Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead Community Wardens, we organised a ‘Burglary Roadshow’ in Tescos on the Dedworth Road. We also visited / telephoned every burglary victim, to offer reassurance and advice, to prevent repeat victimisation. We also Cocooned every street and road, in which a burglary has taken place, to reduce the fear of crime. Cocooning involves talking to residents in a road affected by a burglary and offering reassurance and crime prevention material. 2. Additional foot / bike and car patrols both during the day and at night, have been organised, working alongside our Partners, the RBWM Community Wardens, in all areas targeted for theft from motor vehicles and burglary offences. . 3. We are in the process of liaising with local Allotment Stakeholders to arrange crime prevention events and tool marking to prevent theft and using the ‘Clear Car Campaign’- where officers identify vehicles left with visible items and then write an advisory letter.
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.
