Barton Police offering residents the chance to attend meetings without leaving the house
October 10 2013
Police in the Barton, Tredworth and White City area of Gloucester will be the first in the county to hold an online community meeting later this month.
Local residents will be given the chance to air their views and ask questions of officers without the need to leave their own homes.
The move comes in a bid to boost interaction with the public in the area and set policing priorities that will do the most to improve life for residents.
Those who want to take part will need to register at www.bartonstreetpolice.forumchitchat.com and then visit the website for the live chat between 6pm and 8pm on Monday October 28.
All officers in Barton, Tredworth and White City have access to the forum and will be ready on the night of the 'virtual' meeting to respond to queries and concerns as they come in.
The forum is also available at all other times for people to visit and post questions. The local policing team will aim to respond to questions posted there within 24 hours.
Police Sergeant Tim Wood said: “This won’t replace regular community meetings – it will just complement them and give us an extra channel of information.
“We really want to make sure that we’re listening to as many people as we can and ensuring our actions are as representative of the community as a whole as possible.
“Many people don’t want to come to a meeting but will engage in this way so we think this will be a valuable tool in our armoury.
“Online forums have worked elsewhere in the country and I am sure will work here.
“You don’t need to give any personal details when you sign up and it couldn’t be easier so we would urge people to join us.”
Posters are now being posted in the Barton area to publicise the forum, along with a QR code that will take people directly to the website.

Barton and Tredworth Operation Tackles Community Concerns
August 29 2013
Officers in Barton, Tredworth and White City were on the roads in the area last week to tackle a range of community priorities.
Operation Tizer saw the local policing team addressing concerns from the public around speeding, scrap metal dealers and parking.
Police Constables and Police Community Support Officers were joined by Environmental Health Officers and Civil Enforcement Officers to take a range of measures on Thursday August 22 and Friday August 23.
These included the use of a speed van to monitor how fast people were travelling along several roads, patrols around local schools to check for obstructive parking and parking on double yellow lines and roaming checks for any unregistered waste carriers.
Amongst the results, 14 people were issued £60 fixed penalty notices by civil enforcement officers for parking on double yellow lines, four people were sent warning letters for being just over the speed limit and four vehicles carrying waste were stopped, with one person fined several hundred pounds for not possessing a waste carrying licence and another warned about the use of a loud speaker.
PC Jo Cryer said: "The community has asked us to take action on these issues and that is exactly what we have done.
"Obstructive and dangerous parking can be a real issue around our schools while the risks of speeding are obvious.
"It's important we work with partners to check metal dealers are abiding by the laws and regulations and that stolen property isn't being transported around the county, so that was another important facet of the operation.
"The results are encouraging but I can reassure the public this is something we will continue to take action on.
"We're already looking at another operation in the near future."
In a separate operation in Hucclecote, a motorist carrying waste was also fined for not possessing a waste carrying licence.

Dispersal Orders in Barton, Tredworth and White City to Tackle Anti-Social Behaviour
May 9 2013
Dispersal orders covering parks in the Barton, Tredworth and White City areas of Gloucester have begun operating to tackle anti-social behaviour.
The orders, which were agreed with Gloucester City Council, will run for six months until the end of October 2013.
They allow police officers or Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) to direct any groups of two or more to leave an area for 24 hours when they believe the behaviour of the group is likely to result in members of the public being harassed, alarmed or distressed.
Officers say that dealing with anti-social behaviour is a policing priority for the area.
PC Rob Bolland said: “There has been community concern about groups of young people gathering in the parks and intimidating other residents.
“These dispersal orders will give us the powers to deal with that issue quickly and effectively.
“We are wary of displacing the problem though, which is why we are going to be enforcing the orders in conjunction with an educational approach. We’ll be speaking to parents and working with local youth clubs to make sure youngsters have meaningful pursuits open to them in the area.”
Councillor Jennie Dallimore, cabinet member for communities and neighbourhoods, commented: “It is only right and proper that the police have the essential tools to do their jobs properly.
“If we have situations where groups of people are disrupting a neighbourhood then the situation needs to be dealt with quickly and effectively. These dispersal orders enable the police to do exactly that. They are another example of how we work closely together to ensure local people can fully enjoy the areas in which they live, work and socialise.”
The first order covers Napier Street Park and the surrounding areas, with boundaries on Metz Way, Derby Road, Barton Street and Trier Way.
The second order covers St James Park in Tredworth and surrounding streets and alleyways. The boundaries are Barton Street, Hatherley Road, Tredworth Road, High Street and St James Street.
The third order covers the Venture Playground, Parry Playing Fields and surrounding streets in White City. The boundaries are Clevedon Road, St Aldwyn Road, the dismantled railway between Bathurst Road and Stroud Road, the allotment boundary between the dismantled railway and the live railway, Dickens Mews, Selwyn Road, Sapperton Road and Bibury Road.
Notices and maps of the dispersal order areas have now been put up in the community to notify people.
Hard Working Junior Wardens get Behind the Scenes Tour at Gloucester Rugby
March 28 2013
Junior Wardens from Matson, Robinswood and Tredworth were given a behind the scenes tour of Kingsholm during Gloucester’s match with London Welsh last weekend.
The youngsters, who get involved in community work to help improve the area they live in as part of a scheme run by Gloucester City Homes, local schools and Gloucestershire Constabulary, were getting the privileged access as a reward for their endeavours over the last year.
The Matson and Robinswood members, known as ‘The Cool Kidz Crew’ and the Tredworth members, known as ‘The Street Steppers’ were taken to the executive lounge and given a history of the rugby club at the 1873 suite. They then settled down to watch the match.
Gary Little, Community Manager for Gloucester Rugby, said: “We were really pleased to invite and give the opportunity for the young wardens to visit Kingsholm last weekend. It was great to hear about the fantastic role they perform in their community and we were pleased to give them a day out at Kingsholm as a reward for all their hard work.”
PCSO Chris Jenkinson, who arranged the event, said: “It was great for the wardens to learn the history of such a great club and a key part of Gloucester life. We are very thankful to Gloucester Rugby for inviting the wardens for this match day experience and it was topped off with a Gloucester win!”
Gloucester City Homes Community Involvement Coordinator Lyn Scudamore adds: “The Junior Wardens work so hard to improve their local communities and it was great to see them enjoying a fantastic visit to Kingsholm as a reward for all their efforts.”
