Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Your Neighbourhood Police Team (NHPT) is based in Great Missenden Library. The team consists of Inspector Richard Vine, Sergeant Nicola Upton, PC Mike Painter, PC Vikki Kerr, PC Janine Daniel, PCSO Nicola Hinkley and PCSO Chris Ging.
Neighbourhood Priority Profiles (NPP)
These are the priorities that the Neighbourhood Action Group (NAG) will be focusing on.  These priorities are set by you and the NAG work together with local community, organisations and businesses to deal with these issues. Please see report for each profile.  The next NAG meeting is to be confirmed.  Unfortunately, this is not a public meeting however if there are items you wish to be raised, please contact the neighbourhood policing team.
The MVAS project (Moveable Vehicle Activation Sign) is now well established in the local area with two signs in the Little Missenden Parish & two in the Great Missenden Parish which are regularly moved around different locations within the parishes. 

The Safer Roads Partnership (Speed Camera Van) has also been active in the area on 18th March 2 x speed vans (checking traffic both directions) were in operation on Windsor Lane Lt Kingshill. Results are unknown at this time.
Further “Community Speed Watch” is planned for April to monitor speed on roads in the Great Missenden / Prestwood and Holmer Green areas.

Local residents are encouraged to become volunteers to undertake “Community Speed Watch”. If you would like to volunteer to help out, or would like to know more about what we do, please contact any of the officers at Great Missenden police office.
There was one house burglary during the month of March in Holmer Green where entry was gained through a rear window & cash was stolen.
There were two non dwelling burglaries that occurred firstly in Holmer Green where a shed was broken into and a bike stolen. The second occurred in Prestwood where a garage door was forced open and a bike stolen.
Three business premises were also targeted where outbuildings were broken into. The first occurred in Great Missenden where a door was damaged, nothing was stolen. The second happened in Prestwood where food items were stolen. The third occurred in Lt Kingshill where tools & vehicle parts were stolen.
With Spring upon us and lighter evenings your home can still be a target for burglars who prefer unoccupied homes / buildings. Ensure you do not leave garden tools to hand as this can aid burglars in gaining entry to properties. Please ensure your properties are not left in darkness use timer switches. Check your outside lights are working correctly. Ensure house alarms, if fitted, are activated doors and windows are shut. Inform neighbours if you are going away so they may keep an eye on your property. With wireless technology burglar alarms / CCTV are now more affordable and easier to install and can become a real deterrent to protecting your property from unwanted attention.
Theft from Vehicle
There have been no thefts from motor vehicles during the month of March.
Vehicle owners are strongly urged to not leave valuables, bags, coats, sat navs, phone or cash on display as this will only invite thieves to break into your vehicles. Please do not leave “non valuables” or something identifiable like an item inside a carrier bag, on display as the only way a thief will find out what you have in your carrier bag is by breaking into your vehicle, most likely causing damage, leaving you with a repair bill or an insurance claim and turning you into a victim of crime. Tradesmen are advised to not leave tools in vans overnight.
We advise residents to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity immediately at the time it is happening. 
Residents are encouraged to provide any information to assist investigations by contacting the police on the non emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or
