Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities in this neighbourhood.

Priority

Burglary remains a priority across the area.

Issued 6 November, 2018

Action taken

We have a dedicated team called Op Monitor who are active in reducing and detecting burglaries. The neighbourhood team, in partnership with the neighbourhood action group (NAG), will be organising crime prevention days of action where we will be distributing crime reduction advice and signing the public up to our messaging system so they can receive further information. We are disrupting and engaging with any known offenders. Anyone with any information regarding burglaries and the handling of stolen property should report it to police or Crimestoppers.

Priority

As the Faringdon area is surrounded by countryside, this attracts rural crime such as hare coursing/poaching and Beauty Spot thefts from vehicles which can have a significant impact on the rural community.

Issued 6 November, 2018

Action taken

Regular rural crime meetings take place where landowners, police, council and other agencies come together to discuss operations going forward and share best practice. We have formed a rural community resilience group with local landowners which has improved communication and accurate crime recording.
On 16th and 17th October we conducted an overnight operation with assistance from our farmers and gamekeepers. These operations are vital in keeping relations with our rural community and also builds our community resilience by them actively helping us to deter crime in the area.

Priority

You said ASB from young people is a problem.

Issued 6 November, 2018

Action taken

The neighbourhood team will be working with the community and partner agencies to divert the young people causing the ASB and to safeguard the most vulnerable from exploitation by enforcement activity.
