Community Highlighted Concern

What is a community highlighted concern?

A community highlighted concern is what your Neighbourhood team will be working on as a priority for your area. These are identified on a monthly basis as a result of a police priority setting meeting which take into account:

  • Information provided to the Community Safety Partnership
  • Information received from your local councillor
  • Community concerns raised through this website

Once prioritised your local team will work towards tackling these issues with the community and if necessary utilise the Time Based Tasking [TBT] process.

Forced to eat out of a dog bowl and deprived of sleep - the differing types of domestic abuse in the county. - Cheltenham,
Item added: Wednesday 13 June 2018
Forced to eat out of a dog bowl and deprived of sleep - the differing types of domestic abuse in the county. Despite being an under-reported crime, the Force records almost three times as many incidents of domestic abuse than burglaries. On average there are 180 incidents reported weekly whereas there are 71 reports for burglary in the county. Over the next few weeks Gloucestershire Constabulary will be raising awareness of five different types of domestic abuse, the 'Right to Ask' and the support that people who experience domestic abuse can receive. Psychological, emotional, financial and sexual are all forms of domestic abuse which people can suffer alongside physical. Detective Chief Inspector Richard Ocone said: "When people think of domestic abuse they often think of physical violence. With this campaign we want to raise awareness of different types of domestic abuse so that people recognise it and are encouraged to come forward, to report it and get support instead of suffering in silence. "It's a criminal offence to subject someone to coercive control, repeatedly making you feel scared, controlled, isolated and dependent. "We know of people who've been forced to eat out of dog bowls, others where they're continuously deprived of sleep, where loans are taken out in their name, or where they can't leave the house because one of their shoes or the push chair always seems to be missing. There are different types of domestic abuse that people might not be aware of which we want highlight."  Support for people experiencing domestic abuse is available across the county through the Gloucestershire Domestic Abuse Support Service (GDASS) who the Constabulary works closely with. Sally Morrissey, Support Services Manager for GDASS said: "GDASS offers a range of bespoke packages of support to help you to live safely and to move on from abuse. There's absolutely nothing to be ashamed of in reporting any type of domestic abuse. You will be believed and we'll support you and your family in any way that we can. "You can contact or refer yourself to us through our website (gdass.org.uk), or you can contact us by e-mail (support@gdass.org.uk), or by calling our help desk on 0845 602 9035. In an emergency you should always call the police on 999."  Sally also has a message for friends, family and professionals who may suspect domestic abuse is taking place. She said: "What I would say to anyone who suspects that domestic abuse is happening is to challenge it and report it. Domestic abuse is never OK and there are no excuses for it. We all have to challenge it if we suspect its happening." Along with other police forces such as West Yorkshire, Warwickshire and West Mercia, Gloucestershire Constabulary will be running its campaign to coincide with the football World Cup. This is where an increase in alcohol consumption and emotions surrounding the game could be a cause for concern. Other police forces have previously stated seeing an increase in domestic abuse reports in previous World Cups. DCI Ocone added: "Domestic abuse is under-reported in Gloucestershire and people who experience it are likely to have suffered 30 previous incidences of domestic abuse before reporting to the police. "While we ourselves haven't seen noticeable increases in domestic abuse during previous World Cups, we hope that the timing of this campaign will prevent anyone from coming into further harm because of it."  Between 1 January and 10 June this year, Gloucestershire Constabulary recorded 4,101 domestic abuse incidents. In comparison, over the same period, 1,620 burglary incidents have been recorded. The Constabulary's campaign will run across radio, print and social media. More information about how any member of the public has the 'Right to Ask' about a person's abusive or violent past can be found on the Constabulary's website by searching for "Clare's Law".  Anyone who has experienced any type of violence or abuse is advised to visit glostakeastand.com as well as the GDASS website for help, advice and support.
Boy arrested after burglary in Cheltenham - Cheltenham,
Item added: Monday 11 June 2018
A 14-year-old boy has been arrested in connection with a burglary at a property in Cheltenham in the early hours of this morning (11 June). Police received a report at 2.45am that attempts were being made to enter cars in Haywards Road. Shortly after this, a householder in Oakley Road disturbed an offender who was trying to enter their property via the bathroom window. Officers attended and a co-ordinated search followed where police dog Sascha tracked a scent for 45 minutes whilst identifying further cars and properties that had been targeted in the area. This led to officers disturbing a burglary which was taking place on Priors Road. The offender fled the scene however the officer and a helicopter from the National Police Air Service (NPAS) located and arrested the boy. He remains in custody at this time. Anyone with information can get in touch by calling police with incident number 43 of 11 June.

Gloucestershire Summer Drink and Drug Drive Campaign - Cheltenham,
Item added: Friday 08 June 2018
Drink or Drug Drive and Face the Penalty The Gloucestershire Summer Drink and Drug Drive Campaign will launch on Saturday 9th June to coincide with the Gloucestershire Motor Show which is being held at Highnam Court in Gloucester. The campaign “Face the Penalty” will focus on detecting drivers who are impaired while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.  It also aims to raise awareness and deter people from driving when unfit and letting people know of the serious consequences they may face. This is a collaborative campaign between Gloucestershire Constabulary,Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service, the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner and Gloucestershire County Council. With the World Cup due to begin on the 14th June the emphasis will be on spreading messages around being prepared, enjoying the summer responsibly and thinking ahead. The campaign will emphasise “safe and social driving” which is a priority of Police and Crime Commissioner Martin Surl’s Police and Crime Plan. Police and Crime Commissioner Martin Surl said,  “This is not about spoiling people’s fun. We want everyone to enjoy themselves when they’re out and be safe at the same time. People who get behind a wheel under the influence are not only putting themselves at risk but others too. “A great deal of work has gone into making drinking and driving socially unacceptable. Road users need to understand driving under the influence of drugs is equally unsafe and intolerable. “As a former police officer and now as commissioner, I have met many people who have suffered immeasurably because someone thought the message did not apply to them. Some were innocent victims, others who took a chance and took a life found out too late it was not worth the risk”.  Councillor Nigel Moor, cabinet member for fire, planning and infrastructure at Gloucestershire County Council said, “Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service has been called to many distressing incidents over the years where drivers have gambled and wrecked their lives, and the lives of others - then they’ve had to “Face the Penalty”. “Our fire fighters continue to visit schools and colleges across the county with the “WRECKED” initiative to get the message across to our young people. Even if they haven’t started driving yet they can still influence their friends and family who do. They’ll also carry the message forward through their life.” Figures from the Office of National Statistics show that young males are most likely to drink and drive and there will be an increased police presence to prevent this. As well as this campaign, Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service will be running an initiative called “WRECKED” which aims to educate school pupils and college students about the consequences of driving while under the influence of drink or drugs. Each “WRECKED” session is delivered by firefighters and is available free to all schools and colleges with students aged 16 or over. Contact fire@glosfire.gov.uk for more information Besides law enforcement, the key messages of the sessions include the physical and emotional consequences of being involved in a crash after drinking or taking drugs and the social and long term impact that drink drive convictions can have.
