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.

Safe and Social Driving

16/08/2018

Based on the Police and Crime Commissioners priority of “Safer days and nights for all” the community highlighted priority is anti-social behaviour and obstructive parking in the Cotswolds water park, in particular in the vicinity of Neigh Bridge country park.

Update

01/08/2018

Local officers have been concentrating their efforts around Neigh Bridge Country Park, and have been issuing advisory notices on cars that are parked on the roadside.

Update 16/08/2018

PC Davis and PCSO Kapronczai have been on proactive patrols in Keynes Water Park in response to unauthorised parties and antisocial behaviour. Last Saturday PCSO Kapronczai disturbed and stopped inappropriate behaviour in a public place.

Leah Davis is a dedicated PC for Tetbury

I am PC Leah Davis and I have been with Glos Police for 9 years, having grown up and worked my whole life in The Cotswolds.

I started my career at Stow on the Response team, I then moved to Cirencester on Response. In 2013, I joined the Neighbourhood policing team becoming a beat officer for Tetbury and the surrounding area. Also in 2013 I became a Family Liaison officer, a voluntary role I undertake alongside my day to day commitments.
Being a FLO is a demanding but a very rewarding role as we provide support and care for families during their most tragic times. Also in 2018 I became the neighbourhood officer for the Rural South.

Being a neighbourhood officer requires engaging with my communities, listening and acting upon their concerns. I fully enjoy the multi agency approach this work demands covering all areas of our communities.
Youth engagement is an area of neighbourhood policing I am passionate about due to its challenges but satisfaction you gain from them.

When I am off duty I enjoy walking my dogs, gardening and trying to keep fit!!

PC Ashley Weller (Rural and Wildlife Crime) is a dedicated PC for Cirencester Rural South

I am PC Ashley Weller, and I have been working in the police for 12 ½ years as of June 2018. 7 of those years were on a response unit in Birmingham and the remainder in the Cotswolds and Stroud.

My sole role in the Cotswolds is a Wildlife and Rural Crime Officer, where I deal with anything from farming issues in which police attention is required, wildlife crime problems, through to poaching and general rural crime.

I have an obsessive passion for the countryside and looking after it.

This sounds cheesy, but my job is partly my hobby. Not the paper work or corporate bit, but going out in to the country side and seeing some of the sights I see. I feel very lucky to work where I do.

Andrew Wood is a dedicated Sgt for Cirencester Rural South

Sgt Wood joined Gloucestershire Constabulary as a Special Constable in Cirencester back in 1993, before joining the regular police in 1996. As a Police Constable, he initially worked in Charlton Kings and Cheltenham Town Centre, with occasional periods in Tewkesbury. After a stint on surveillance, he was posted to Gloucester South, covering the Hardwicke, Quedgeley , Podsmead and Tuffley areas of the city, and also as a guard in custody. Following promotion in 2003, he continued to work in these areas, with occasional periods as duty sgt for the whole of the city or the Forest of Dean.

In 2008 he was posted, initially to Cirencester, but then joined the duty sgt cadre covering the Cotswolds and Stroud areas. During that time he was temporarily promoted to Inspector, supervising the support services such as crime prevention, licensing, firearms and neighbourhood watch.

A return to Cirencester in 2011 has seen him perform roles as response Sgt and further periods of Inspector duties. In January 2018 he became part of the Neighbourhood team.

In addition to his day to day role, Sgt Wood is one of the constabularies Hostage and Crisis Negotiators and also coordinates searches for lost people. Involved with the Police Cadet scheme since its inception, he has recently stepped back from that function, but still provides inputs to their sessions.

Darren Thomas is a dedicated LPSO for Cirencester-Rural North

I have been working for the Constabulary for nine years.  I have been in several different roles during this time, but my current role is a Local Policing Support Officer and my responsibilities are mainly behind the scenes, looking after the police stations in the Cotswolds, and ensuring the officers have everything they need to carry out their roles in serving the public.

Over the last few months I’ve started attending Police Points and Community Events, bringing along a selection of Crime Prevention items for you to view and buy.  It has been great to get out into the community and to meet the public.

In my spare time I love to go walking and enjoy holidays in my caravan.

Police work with Parish Council to help combat speeding - The Cotswolds,
Item added: Tuesday 24 July 2018
A neighbourhood policing team has supported a village near Wotton-under-Edge in their battle to reduce the number of speeding drivers on its roads. Villagers in Kingswood, where the roads have a 30 mph limit, have endured years of excessive speeding, particularly around the commuter and school run times. But after exhausting other options the Parish Council has installed the latest high tech automatic number plate recognition and speed detection system at three key locations. In June - the first full month of operation - 71,000 vehicles were clocked passing through the village, seven of which were being driven at more than double the speed limit. Two BMW drivers were shown to be travelling in excess of 70 mph and neighbourhood officers from Dursley police station visited the drivers, causing one to update their insurance details which resulted in a £1,700 premium increase. Throughout June, 28 per cent of the traffic exceeded the 30 mph limit and 417 vehicles were detected as travelling in excess of 45 mph. The system is being used for educational reasons and warning letters will be issued to those who flout the speed. Police also make visits to those speeding excessively and words of advice are given, however further action would also be considered. Neighbourhood Police Sergeant Liz Lovell said: "This is an excellent example of how neighbourhood policing can work with its communities to solve long term problems. "The Parish Council has taken the initiative and invested in this system with the welfare of its villager's top of mind - it's really determined to tackle this very real problem. "We will always try to collaboratively support our communities under such circumstances and particularly so where it ties into the Police and Crime plan around safe and social driving." Parish Councillor Paul Hemming added: "We have spent a lot of time considering the best options for traffic calming measures in Kingswood. "It has been a consistent thorn in our side for more than 10 years and we're delighted our neighbourhood policing team have embraced our solution to it with such endeavour. "We very much support the educational, 'heart and minds' tactic in addressing driver behaviour through our village which the police have advocated in the first instance." Parish Councillors met with police and entered into an information sharing agreement which gives the Force access to the system's combined number plate and road speed data.  No personal data will be shared with the Parish Council and they only have the ability to see the vehicle registration number on the system which is then passed on to police. This means police will be in contact with the most persistent and prolific drivers who flout the 30 mph zone around Kingswood. The agreement also allows police to use the system as a general crime prevention and detection intelligence tool.
Appeal for witnesses after burglary at Mitcheldean takeaway - The Cotswolds,
Item added: Monday 16 July 2018
We're appealing for witnesses to a burglary which took place in Mitcheldean during the early hours of this morning (16 July). The burglary at the Golden Kitchen Takeaway on High Street took place at just before 3am. It's believed that two men entered the takeaway before leaving with a till and running in the direction of Platts Road. The offenders are described as two white men who were around 17-20 years-old. One of them was wearing a black long sleeve top and the other was wearing a silver/grey top. The man in the black top is thought to have been carrying the cash draw of the till. Anyone who witnessed suspicious activity in the area or has information about the burglary is asked to call 101 with incident 42 of 16 July.
