The Community Safety Newsletter aims to keep residents informed about what the Community Safety Partnership has been involved with in Chiltern and South Bucks districts in the last month.
Update from Jane Brown
Jane Brown is the Area Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator for the Ivers. Jane does a lot of work within the community and has provided us with an update on what she has recently been involved in.
Sunday 20th October - Ride Along with Thames Valley Police
I had an amazing experience with Thames Valley Police. I went out for the entire shift (3.00 - 11.00pm) with a unit from Team 2 at Amersham as a ‘Civilian Observer’. I attended immediate and follow up calls covering an area from Richings Park in the South to Great Missenden in the North of the Chiltern & South Bucks LPA. I was privileged to see how diligently & patiently officers process Domestic incidents. These officers work non stop, keeping us safe in very difficult times.
Saturday 30th November - Light Up The Ivers
During the Light up the Ivers event crime prevention advice was given and warnings about pickpockets. UV marker pens, 'No Cold Calling' sticker packs, and purse bells were very popular.
I have taken on two extra Community Safety projects; Community Speed Watch & Smartville. In the below picture I am explaining the projects to Dominic Grieve, former MP for Beaconsfield.
- Speeding is a constant concern for South Bucks and is one of the Fatal 4.
- Smartville is a residents funded CCTV initiative to deter & detect Crime. The aim is to gather the best evidence from ANPR, overview, residents own CCTV, video doorbell & dash cam footage with the objective to reduce crime in the Ivers.
This month we were involved in a Winter Burglary Campaign with Thames Valley Police. The campaign was focusing on home security, crime reduction, looking out for neighbours and encouraging Neighbourhood Watch Schemes.
On Wednesday 4th & Wednesday 11th December we were at various train stations across Chiltern and South Bucks talking to local residents. We got on the trains to have a chat whilst people were on their way to work and we also stayed on the platform talking to those waiting for their trains.
Lots of advice was given to the public and we hope more residents will remember to leave a light on if they know they will be out for the day - especially over the Christmas period.
