Local priorities

The following priorities have been identified by the community and the police:

  1. Burglary non dwelling and theft from vehicle - This month has been very quiet crime wise, with only two more crimes in the Waddesdon area than this time last year, and 4 less in Haddenham/Long Crendon making a total of 26 in the last 4 weeks in the 35 villages covered by the team. There have been 6 burglaries in the Waddesdon area, 1 house burglary in Waddesdon and 5 non dwelling burglaries of which 3 were in Quainton. In relation to the burglary in Waddesdon, a 31 year old male from the village has been charged with handling stolen goods. Two offenders have been recorded as having been brought to justice in the last 4 weeks, with a male charged with assault in Waddesdon and a male cautioned for possession of Cannabis in Long Crendon. In the Haddenham area, there has been no burglary offences reported. Despite these encouraging statistics, historically at this time of year we see an increase in what we call acquisitive crimes (burglary and theft) as the evenings are dark and people fill their houses with presents. Please take the time to read the advice inside the December newsletter to make your home a harder target for thieves

These are being dealt with by your neighbourhood policing team in partnership with residents and other agencies. Progress will be reported in the Neighbourhood updates.
