Community Safety News October 2018 EDITION

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.

Cyber Resilience Week

Chiltern and South Bucks District Council, Wycombe District Council, Aylesbury Vale District Council, Bucks County Council, Natwest and Thames Valley Police are working in partnership to support Cyber Resilience Week which starts on Monday 5th November.

During this week we will be hosting the Thames Valley Cyber Crime Forum which will give the public the opportunity to ask questions and raise any concerns relating to Cyber Crime and Online Safety.

Bonfire night can be a great night for the whole family however it is important to stay safe whether you are letting fireworks off at home or attending a organised display.

There are no tricks when our Community Safety Team officers knock on your door this October.

This month we are on patrol with Thames Valley Police, visiting residents to give advice about keeping safe and well this autumn and handing out helpful goodies.

Some of the treats we will be giving to residents include Halloween posters that you can display in your window to indicate if you are happy to receive real trick or treaters on 31st October, light timers to deter burglars and ultraviolet pens to mark your belongings.

Look out for us over the next few weeks, and if you would like to speak to a member of your Neighbourhood Police Team you can always contact them via the Thames Valley Police website in the meantime:

Home Security Month

With the dark night’s drawing in and the clocks due to go back on the 28th of this month, unfortunately winter time statistically shows that there is a rise in burglary.

In support of Home Security Month Chiltern District Council and South Bucks District Councils' Community Safety Team would like to offer you a few hints and tips to help prevent you becoming a victim of this devastating crime.

Thank you for reading!
