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.

Vehicle Crime

10/07/2018

The Community led Policing priority is vehicle crime in the Golden Vale area. This priority has been reviewed on 10/076/2018 and remains the main focus of the Neighbourhood Policing Team in this area. This priority is linked to the Police and Crime Commissioners priority of ‘Accessibility and Accountability.


Alexandra Lawson is a dedicated 90 for Golden Vale

Predominately before joining Gloucestershire Constabulary in 2000 as a Fleet Vehicle Supervisor, I was a Manager in various roles within different Motor Franchises.

2003 I decided a complete change of career paths, and became a Police Community Support Officer, covering Brockworth, Churchdown and Innsworth from the now closed station which was Cheltenham Road East.

Moving to Tewkesbury I now cover Golden Vale, which is Churchdown and Innsworth. 

In 2006 I was awarded Police Community Support officer of the year for Gloucestershire.

Since then I have received several Chief Constables Merit awards and a Chief Constables Quality of Service award for commitment in the continuing pursuit of excellence in my role as a PCSO.

In 2006 I also became a tutor for PCSO’s.

I enjoy my role immensely, relishing the different challenges and rewards each day brings, whilst working as part of the Tewkesbury Neighbourhood Policing team.

CCTV appeal following two distraction thefts - Gloucester, Tewkesbury,
Item added: Friday 06 July 2018
Police investigating two distraction thefts last month have released CCTV images of two women they would like to speak to in connection. A woman aged in her 70s was followed from her bank on Southgate Street, Gloucester by two women after she had withdrawn a sum of cash on 5 June. She was in Iceland in The Oxebode a short time later when two women approached her. While one woman was talking to her, the other woman removed the victim's purse from her handbag and then left the store. The victim later realised her purse and phone were missing and more money had been withdrawn from her account. This resulted in a loss of more than £1,000. In a separate incident earlier on the same day, a woman aged in her 80s had been distracted by two women while she was shopping alone in Poundland on Tewkesbury High Street. One of the women took a purse from the victim's handbag which contained £80 in cash and a number of cards. The victim realised her purse was missing when she went to pay at the till. If you recognise the two women pictured below, or have any information which could help with enquiries, call police on 101 and quote incident number 306 of 5 June.

Exploited children as young as 14 found in drug dealer's flat and car - Cheltenham, The Cotswolds, Forest of Dean, Gloucester, Stroud, Tewkesbury,
Item added: Friday 06 July 2018
Over the past few months we’ve found children as young as 14 in drug dealers’ flats, in their cars and with them in public places like shopping centres and high streets. Children have been found living in squalid, horrific conditions, recruited by drug gangs from big cities like Birmingham, who send them to our county to courier money and drugs. These children are often at crisis points in their own lives and drugs gangs use their vulnerability to entice and trap them into criminal activity. Often they’re sent here on buses, trains and in taxis. If you use public transport and suspect a child is being used to transport drugs, trust your instincts and please report it. Call 101 or use this form to tell us: bit.ly/TraffickedChild You can also report anonymously through Crimestoppers by clicking here: bit.ly/GlosPolCrimestoppers Since 2016 we've arrested 188 people in relation to County Lines. 59 of them have so far received a custodial sentence and 16 have received a non-custodial sentence. Charges and trials continue. #CountyLines
County Lines drugs gangs responsible for knife crime murders - Cheltenham, The Cotswolds, Forest of Dean, Gloucester, Stroud, Tewkesbury,
Item added: Thursday 05 July 2018
Over the past few years you’ve probably heard about people being killed or injured with knives in the county. We can’t post much detail about recent crime, but we can tell you that in Gloucestershire in 2016 at least two murders and a number of stabbings were related to County Lines Class A drugs gangs. These gangs are trafficking and using children as ‘drugs mules’ to bring drugs heroin and crack cocaine into Gloucestershire.  They are very dangerous. They exploit and prey upon vulnerable youngsters. If you see a child who should be in school, possibly travelling alone or with older adults, and it doesn’t feel right to you, trust your instincts – let us know by calling 101 or using this form: bit.ly/TraffickedChild You can also report anonymously through Crimestoppers by clicking here: bit.ly/GlosPolCrimestoppers Since 2016 we've arrested 188 people in relation to County Lines. 59 of them have so far received a custodial sentence and 16 have received a non-custodial sentence. Charges and trials continue. #CountyLines
New off-road vehicles give boost to fight against rural crime - Cheltenham, The Cotswolds, Forest of Dean, Gloucester, Stroud, Tewkesbury,
Item added: Thursday 05 July 2018
Gloucestershire's fight against rural crime has been given a boost by the introduction of two new all-terrain vehicles which are due to hit the roads in the next few days. The vehicles, a Polaris Ranger off road buggy and a Suzuki King Quad 4x4, are on loan to Gloucestershire Constabulary from Cotswold Farm Machinery / Logic and Ace ATV, all local companies, and will allow officers to quickly reach areas which are otherwise difficult to access and stop poachers and other offenders in their tracks. They will be used throughout the county, responding to reports of poaching, hare coursing and other crimes, and their arrival has been welcomed by the whole Rural Crime Team. Inspector Karen Ellis: "We are very grateful to Cotswold Farm Machinery, Logic and Ace ATV for the loan of these high powered vehiclesand equipment to help our fight against rural crime. "They are already in service and our rural crime officers are being trained to use them off-road so they will be available anywhere in the county as required. "We are confident that they will make a significant difference to our ability to catch offenders and put a stop to the crimes they are committing, including poaching of deer and fish, hare coursing, illegal off-road motor and quad bike racing as well as rural burglary and the theft of agricultural machinery. "We will be able to go anywhere, during any weather conditions,  and this greatly improves our chances of catching criminals red-handed,especially during this year’s anti hare coursing operations throughout the summer ( Operation Firefly). "The vehicles could also be used to help locate missing vulnerable people in remote locations." Martin Surl, Police and Crime Commissioner for Gloucestershire, said: “Policing a county as diverse as Gloucestershire requires different approaches to getting officers where they need to be. “Fighting rural crime is a key part of my Police and Crime Plan and the Constabulary’s Neighbourhood Policing strategy, as so many communities are rural and deeply affected by offending in their area.   “Taking the larger vehicles deeper in to rural areas isn’t always possible, so having these two off-roaders makes perfect sense. “Officers will be able to get to those hard-to-reach places much quicker and more effectively, to bring offenders to justice, find and collect evidence and help victims.”Simon Carrington, managing director of Cotswold Farm Machinery, said: "We have supplied these vehicles to support the police in dealing with crimes that affect the whole community as we have seen the devastating impact rural crime has on our customers and their families."We recognise that these are challenging times for everyone and wanted to do something positive to address the issues."  
Children as young as 14 are still being regularly trafficked to Gloucestershire by drugs gangs. - Cheltenham, The Cotswolds, Forest of Dean, Gloucester, Stroud, Tewkesbury,
Item added: Tuesday 03 July 2018
Do you often travel on public transport? Children are being sent here from big cities such as Birmingham on trains, buses and in taxis. Here are the signs you can look out for: A non-local accent and unfamiliar with the local area Travelling during school hours or overnight Having more than one phone or SIM card Receiving excessive texts or phone calls Travelling alone on similar routes regularly Avoiding authority figures or transport staff Last year we posted about County Lines drugs gangs (previously known as Dangerous Drugs Networks) that take over the homes of vulnerable people. These same gangs are exploiting children and using them as drug mules. If you’re concerned about a child being trafficked by a drugs gang call 101, visit https://bit.ly/TraffickedChild or anonymously report it through Crimestoppers. This week we will be posting messages on our social media channels to support Operation Tarak. This is the South West's response to the threat, risk and harm caused by county lines activity by Dangerous Drugs Networks. The lead police force in the region for County Lines is Wiltshire Police.
