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

Priority

Vehicle Crime - We continue to work with our partners and the community to raise awareness and build resilience. We provide targeted crime prevention advice and carry out Clear car Campaigns where appropriate alongside RBWM Community wardens. We also circulate crime information with appropriate crime prevention advice via the Thames Valley Alert system. There are 1868 residents in Maidenhead Central who receive these updates and also provide us with relevant information as to their identified issues so that we can target high visibility patrols.

22/01/18 Thames Valley Police are currently working closely with RBWM and key stakeholders to jointly understand and respond to the issues generated by our NTE (Night Time Economy) and recognise the impact this can have upon the community, local businesses, staff and visitors to Windsor.

A multi-agency strategic Night Time Economy group RBWM was convened in September 2017 to develop a Borough wide strategy with the intention of coordinating responses and efforts more effectively. This strategic group continues to work collaboratively to protect the most vulnerable within our communities and to prevent crime and disorder.

As well as this, weekly reviews of all crime figures are held by the Town Centre Sgt and TVP's and RBWM's Licensing Managers to identify developing trends or any issues within licenced premises which can be problem solved to tackle such issues.

The Licensing Manager has and continues to facilitate safeguarding workshops to venues throughout RBWM with positive results and feedback.

Any significant and established problems are identified through research of our High Demand persons and locations and are problem solved by our local Neighbourhood Team. Each High Demand Person/Location is then reviewed in the joint agency High Demand Meeting monthly.

05/09/2018 - Maidenhead Night Time Economy continues to be reviewed weekly. There are some positive developments in that The Maidenhead Street Angels are being briefed by Thames Valley Police prior to deployment each weekend and our Special Constables have taken on the challenge of policing Maidenheads night time economy fully supported by the regulars. TVP's Licencing Manager continues to meet regularly with the various pubs and clubs which helps to inform our taskings on a weekly basis.
