Local priorities - 'You said, We did'

The following priorities have been identified by the community and the police:

  • You said: Quad bikes,mopeds and motorbikes

    There were problems with quad bikes,mopeds and motorbikes in the Amersham Road area of Caversham being Anti – Social.

    We did:
    The Caversham NHPT did – High visibility patrols, spoke with residents, identified users of motorbike and those that were using them in an anti-social manner were issued warnings. A few riders did not adhere to the warnings so we seized their bikes using Section 59 Police Reform Act 2002.

    Problem with speeding in several roads in Caversham.

    We did:
    The Caversham NHPT did – static points in roads highlighted with officers using the speed gun and PCSOs took out SID (A Speed Indication Device) in the roads that were mentioned. A few tickets were issued for speeding by officers using the speed gun and several cars were noted as speeding by SID.

  • You said: Cycling on the pavement

    Problems with cycling on the pavement in Caversham Precinct, Caversham Bridge and Reading Bridge.

    We did:
    The Caversham NHPT did – High visibility patrols, placed warning notices around the area, educated and warned cyclists and issued £50 penalty tickets for cycling on the pavement to those that did not listen to the warnings.

  • You said: Anti-social behaviour

    There was Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) around the shopping precinct at Farnham Drive, Caversham Park Village.

    We did:
    The Caversham NHPT did – high visibility patrols at times given, engaged with businesses and shoppers, attended with ASB officer from Reading Borough Council and met with local youths to educate and discuss ASB issues.
