Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police


FIRST:  I attended a meeting last night and was asked if the police monitored all the local / street / community Facebook groups, where people were talking about and reporting crimes in their community.  The answer is no.  No-one, would be happy, if they believed the police were monitoring these groups !

The question was then asked – are we aware of the crime discussions taking place on these sites, within that community ?  The answer is again - no – unless someone in that group, lets us know.

Often our members send me screenshots of entries on this group, not knowing who could assist, so that I can pass them onto the appropriate teams, to get something done.

What would help us and you, is to record the matters on the TVP website as well as local Facebook groups – if we don’t know about a problem, we cannot react and come up with a solution / additional patrols and taskings.

The process is really simple.  We are very happy to accept intelligence and information, as well as crime reports online, at the TVP website:

https://www.thamesvalley.police.uk/

Please save that link as a favourite.  On the TVP Website front page, are blue links, to report a crime or pass us information.  The process could not be simpler and is exactly the same as phoning the 101 number.  The information online, goes to exactly the same place and given the same importance.

Every day we receive a great deal of information, for which we are really grateful.  They are recorded in ours system as ‘Suspicious Other’, ‘Suspicious Person’ and Suspicious Vehicle’.  Everyone inside the police Station can see them and respond.  When you see reports of a ‘suspicious’ person walking along a road looking into cars with a torch / trying car door handles / Nottingham Knockers in the community, they are from one of these suspicious incident reports, sent to us.

If you part of an online Facebook String, dealing with crime in the local community, please let me know.  I can assist and pass it onto the correct group, to get something done !

The same applies to RBWM Council matters, such as parking issues / Street Lights etc.  I work closely with all your local Councillors / the Borough Council and can pass on any issues you have.  If it is Borough related, you can of course, email it directly to the RBWM Community Wardens at:

wardens@rbwm.gov.uk

NEXT:  At the meeting, we also discussed the plans for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee this year.  If you are beginning to plan your summer hanging baskets, front gardens visible from the street – the colour scheme for the Jubilee is – purple and white - and Councillors hope the whole Borough is covered in these colours.  All the town planting will also be in these colours, from early February, when celebrations begin.

NEXT:  Unfortunately – yet another SEXTORTION – which we reord as ‘Blackmail’:

A young man, received a friend’s request from an attractive young woman and they started to facetime each other.  She then showed herself naked and asked him, if he would show her his body.  Intimate acts then took place.

Immediately afterwards, she informed him she had recorded the whole incident and demanded money.  She then created a group chat with him and all the members of his family from his Facebook page and demanded an immediate payment of £50 or she would post the video / images.

She then sent him the images, to show she was serious and then demanded £5,800.  The young man then sent them a screenshot of his bank statement and they immediately lowered it back down to £50.

He has not sent any money and they are still messaging him threatening to send the images to his family.

YET AGAIN – PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT SAY, WRITE, TEXT, PHOTOGRAPH, VIDEO ANYTHING ONLINE, OR ON YOUR PHONE, YOU WOULD NOT BE HAPPY FOR YOUR FAMILY, RELATIVES, FRIENDS, NEIGHBOURS, WORK COLLEAGUES – EMPLOYER - EVERYONE IN YOUR PERSONAL ADDRESS BOOK / CONTACT LIST - TO SEE !

I am putting several of these out each week.  Imagine the hurt and embarrassment they could cause to someone and their family.  Please advise everyone you know.  These do not only involve young men, but young women and more senior citizens, as well !!!!
