Your local policing team
Local policing teams are groups of officers dedicated to serving the community. Teams are made up of officers based in the area, supported by additional officers from the wider area.
Teams work closely with local authorities, organisations, partners and residents to decide policing priorities. This helps teams find long-term solutions to local problems.
Burglary is an invasive crime which aside from financial loss causes significant upset to victims. Often the
psychological impact is far worse than the loss of property. Victims often describe that they feel ‘violated’ following a burglary. People should always feel safe in their homes and therefore burglary will remain a priority for us
in Chiltern and South Bucks.. Led by the police supported by the community; this will be tackled through pursuing offenders, crime prevention activities including ANPR operations, crime reduction events, and education.
We are working closely with support agencies, to identify and prevent abuse of identified residents who may be vulnerable to ‘Cuckooing’ (vulnerable residents are exploited by existing drug users and dealers). We are educating parents and engaging with schools and youth groups.
We continue to work with our partners, to target, prevent and reduce reports of drug use and dealing within the Neighbourhood. Drugs warrants will be executed at identified premises to target reported offenders where necessary. Closure orders will be sought for identified premises within the neighbourhood. This prevents any person apart from support agencies and current residents from entering or remaining in the premises.
The targeted high visibility patrols completed by officers and the information gathered from local residents, enables us to understand the local issues and target enforcement to reduce drug related issues, improving the area for local residents
Anti-social behaviour has a real effect on victims and the community. Often people become repeat victims and require support from the police and partner agencies. We know that anti-social behaviour is a priority for the local community and has a significant effect on people’s lives. Anti-social behaviour also leads to other offences such as Criminal Damage and Assault and this can lead to lasting harm. Anti-social behaviour affects victim’s quality of life and without intervention of the police or partner agencies this often goes on for an extended period of time.
What we are doing:
We will identify key areas to target high visibility patrols. We are working together with our Community Safety colleagues to identify and deal with perpetrators. Our Schools officer is providing educational inputs at local academies in order to reduce the likelihood of ASB. We are also working with private and social housing sectors to deal with those who cause nuisance through excessive noise. We risk assess repeat victims and ensure that appropriate support agencies are involved where required
There are no meetings or event scheduled.
