Neighbourhood Priorities

The priorities for your Neighbourhood Policing Team (NHPT) will be decided by the Policing Issues Panel; comprised of representatives from Community Boards from the whole of Chiltern & South Bucks. The panel is not run by the Police, although we do attend as representatives. This allows us to speak to a wide cross-section of the community, find out what you most want improved in the area and consider how we and others can accomplish these aims. The top three priorities are chosen by the forum every three months and are then assumed by your Neighbourhood Policing Team.

Priority – Burglary

This quarter we have seen a reduction from 19 last year compared to 1 this year which is a reduction of 95%, it is an encouraging sign that our increased presence in known burglary areas is having the desired effect.
• Keep car and house keys out of reach from windows and doors
• Set timer switches to turn your lights on for when it gets dark
• Avoid leaving valuables in plain view e.g. laptops and tablets
• Set any house alarms
• Lock side gates to prevent access to the rear of your property
• Keep any tools and ladders stored safely away in a locked garage
• Don’t advertise that you are away and that your home is empty, by ‘checking in’ or posting your holiday snaps on social media
• Resist uploading any holiday pictures to social media until you have returned home

Please remember to not leave your house in darkness, and consider purchases of alarms, timer switches and doorbell cameras are all great tools in combatting burglars. Take a look at Thames Valley Police Website for further crime prevention advice or contact your local Neighbourhood Team.

Priority – Anti-Social Behaviour

We have identified issues around Malthouse Square and Holtspur Park in relation to antisocial behaviour and drug use and an increase in Graffiti. To combat this there has been increased patrols in the area at peak times.

In addition PCSO Hawkes is working closely with the Beaconsfield School to run a youth project over the half term period. This is a music and film project to encourage local youths to get involved and learn new skills. This is aimed at youths between 11-14 year olds and gives them opportunities to learn about making films, how to produce and edit them and work alongside a music/song producer and film maker from the Song Corporation, London. This is the fourth project of this type which has always been a great hit with the local kids!

Priority – Speeding

Speeding has been an area concern to many residents within the community but, with the slight increase in traffic gradually taking effect, the number of complaints has reduced. We have not been able to complete any Community Speed Watch Events during this quarter due to the lack of volunteers.

To support this, we are training more officers to conduct speed measurement; using enforcement devices. We are reviewing the information we are getting from these operations and using this data to guide future deployments. We work very closely with our Roads Policing Dept. and work with them when operational demand allows.

Rural Crime

During February the team are carrying out targeted patrols in our remote areas to tackle rural crime. They are also giving out crime reduction and information to local farms and stables about property marking, tool security, tack marking and wildlife crime

Other News

Sadly we have had to say goodbye to Sgt Rachel Dale who has now moved to Didcot. Rachel was the NH Sergeant for this area for over three years and was always out and about in the community, she will be missed by us. You will soon be seeing our new Sergeant Hadley Gabriel who will be joining us from Slough at the end of March.

In December you would have seen our Police Cadets escorting the parade at the Beaconsfield Christmas Fayre. This is a lovely community event which we enjoy attending every year. Police cadets is a programme which aims to give young people between the ages of 13-18 years an opportunity to participate within the community, provides training which will encourage positive leadership skills and volunteering opportunities. If you would like to join police cadets please contact us at

Have Your Say Events
We have now started our Have Your Say events again so please keep an eye on our social media where we will advertise where we will be.

In addition to overcome gatherings we have identified areas for us to be present, visible and whilst completing our never-ending paperwork. We want the areas to be key points in each community where people are able to see us safely, varying times throughout the month and locations. Due to various reasons, on demand, operationally commitments and to prevent large gatherings we will not be publishing times and dates. however we wish to make the community aware of these locations and if you see a Police vehicle or officer at these locations, we are there for you to speak to us, please come and say hello and help us identify any concerns you have or any information, you may feel will assist us.
