Interaction with the Young people of Kingsholm & Wotton
One of our aims as a community team is to build closer relations with with young people in the Kingsholm & Wotton area.
We have identified that there is a lack of facilities open to young people in the area. Officers from the team have spoken to young people in the area towards the end of 2013 and the general consensus of those who were spoken to is that if they want to do something, they will stay around the area and were not aware of many things to do.
If you have any suggestions of what you would like to see for young people in the Kingsholm & Wotton area, please get in touch. We are also able to attend local youth groups to speak to young people & volunteers on various topics such as internet safety, personal safety and crime issues.
If you are are involved in an group and you wish for us to attend or we can promote it on our Twitter site, please contact Pc Mark Evans here
As part of the safer schools partnership we have with schools in the Kingsholm & Wotton area, we are dedicated to ensuring the safety of all children attending their local school. It has come to our attention that there are concerns over illegal parking outside the school gates and along side roads which are endangering the safety of pupils, parents and staff.
We would urge, where possible, for parents/guardians to park away from the school in a safe and sensible area and then walk. Working in partnership with the county council civil enforcement Officers, the Gloucester Police community engagement team will be monitoring parking outside the schools and in the surrounding area. We will be dealing with any offences of illegal parking, in particular those that endanger the safety of pupils, parents and staff. We understand that it is only a very small minority of parents/guardians that park irresponsibly.
Keeping your bicycle safe & secure
Over the past 12 months a number of bikes have been stolen from unsecured sheds, bike racks and from outside of a number of premises.
We are working with various agencies and businesses to assist with keeping bicycles secure; however please help us to keep your bicycles safe and out of the hands of thieves.

To help people secure their bicycle, in a bid to reduce the number of bikes that have been stolen across the City, Gloucester Police are selling bicycle alarm D locks from the Gloucester Police main reception at Bearlands on Longsmith Street. These cost £10 and are an extremely effective lock for deterring bike thieves as they emit a high pitched alarm when tampered with. There is also another variation available which is not alarmed at a cost of £15.
