Local Officers targetting motorists not observing one way restrictions

Nailsworth officers have been actively targetting motorists not observing one way restrictions put in place by Highways due to road closure on the B4058 due to landslip. Motorists that were not stopped and spoken to will be receiving advice in the post warning them of the offence that has been committed.  

Thank you For Keeping Me Safe


Police Officers and PCSO's from the Stroud Neighbourhood Policing Team attended Nailsworth Primary School on Friday 17th January, bringing the 'Thank you For Keeping Me Safe' campaign to the children, parents and teachers.  The campaign has attracted considerable local media coverage over recent months following it's initial rollout in Stonehouse at Park Infants/Juniors School.

The campaign addresses the all too common issue of parking outside schools in our county.  In a bid to alleviate congestion outside local schools officers from the team will be working with the school, the parents, children and local authority.  The campaign sees the introduction of 'Colin the crocodile copper', a lifesize crocodile dressed as a Police Officer, who delivered school road safety talks to the children.  The aim being that the children will then pass on the message to their parents to encourage safe and considerate parking, as well as bringing a road safety element of eduction to schools by local officers.

The campaign aims to educate, rather than enforce.  We have been very successful in other schools and hope that the event in Nailsworth brings the same success.

Speeding along the A46 and Springhill

The speed board has been deployed in both locations. The Roads Policing Unit has assisted us with gathering data from the A46 which has been passed on to the A46 action group along with a similar set of data provided by county Highways.

Dwelling burglaries advice

We know that dwelling burglaries are of concern to our local community at the moment due a clustering effect leading a certain area to feel targeted. The number of dwelling burglaries are the same in the last three months of 2013 versus 2012, a period of the year when we traditionally have a spike in offences.  Non dwelling burglaries are significantly down. 

Targeted crime prevention work in conjunction with the Mobile Police Station has taken place along with extensive enquiries into the offences which are being treated as  priority across the Local Policing Area as a whole.

Please remain vigilant for your neighbours properties and take reasonable precautions to protect your own. Using timer switches to control lights and radios in the house is a good starting point.

Speed checks on the A46

PC Matthews and some of his colleagues have recently been conducting some speed check on the A46.
