Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Rural Crime
Rural Crime is a priority for the Thame Neighbourhood Team, particularly around the Watlington area. The neighbourhood team have been conducting high visibility ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) operations on roads that may be used by criminals targeting the rural area. Officers have also been conducting regular high visibility patrols around the rural area. 

Thame neighbourhood policing team with the assistance of the National Police Air Service seized two vehicles suspected in being involved in hare coursing in the Watlington area on 30 August. One of the vehicles was located stuck in an anti-poaching ditch and the other located abandoned in a nearby field.

Thame NHPT have been conducting target hardening visits to rural parts of our community with the aim of promoting crime prevention due to an increased number of calls regarding criminal damage and hare coursing.

Anti-social behaviour (ASB) 
ASB is still a high priority for the neighbourhood team. We have been and will continue to conduct high visibility patrols through the town and in doing so have deterred ongoing problems. Drivers have been given section 59 warnings for using their vehicles in an anti-social manner and persons have been issues acceptable behaviour contracts to prevent further offences.

Offenders brought to justice
•    A local prolific burglar has recently been arrested and as a result the Local Policing Area has seen a reduction in dwelling burglaries since.
•    A local youth has been arrested for Assault. 
•    Offenders have been caught following a theft of vehicle and have been bailed pending the ongoing investigation.

Crime prevention advice
Thame NHPT would like to remind the public to make sure that vehicles are fully secure when unattended and all valuables are removed from the vehicle. Can we also remind the public to secure vehicle keys out of sight in the home.

Have Your Say Meetings:
•    Monday 11th September, 11am, Watlington Parish Council – PCSO Kehoe
