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.
Led by the police, supported by the community; this will be tackled through pursuing offenders, crime prevention activities including Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) operations, crime reduction events and education.
You said: You wanted more burglary prevention
We did: We continue to support victims of burglary and help prevent offences by giving crime prevention advice. In Chesham, we have seen a reduction of residential burglary offences compared to the same period as last year.
We have had reports of Commercial Burglary’s reported in Chesham. Some of these reports have seen offenders arrested, charged and remanded in custody. We have worked with retailers making it obvious to offenders that no cash is left on premises overnight
With all burglary offences, area CID will review all burglaries and lead on the investigations considering forensic and CCTV opportunities. Victims of residential burglaries will continue to receive crime prevention advice from the local neighbourhood team. Officers will ensure that cocooning with neighbours takes place and that victims are offered property marking tools
Your local team have continued with high visibility presence in the areas which have been targeted and continue to conduct patrols in Chesham in order to prevent offences. We continue to hold regular crime prevention meetings, attend events and provide education to home owners regarding their home security.
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.
