Local team update for November - Redlands / Park

Abbey Outer and Park Neighbourhood Policing Monthly Update – November 2016

On our Neighborhood team have a dedicated Schools Police Community Support Officer, PCSO Dale Why. Dale has already delivered school talks to our local schools this month and continues to engage with the younger members of the community.

Your team is continuing to conduct high visibility patrols in Palmer Park concerning suspected drug dealing. No offenders have been identified but patrols will continue.

PCSO Dale Why and PCSO Sue Roff both attended St Stephens Court this month to engage with the community during a McMillan Cancer fundraising event.

Speed checks have been completed in St Bartholomew’s Road using the Speed Indicator Device after requests following a recent speed limit change. The results are currently being processed to identify whether the new 20mph limit is being upheld. Further speeding enforcement is planned in the area for the upcoming month.

Please remember that most of the side streets in the Neighborhood are now 20mph.

PCSO Sue Roff is now the lead person working with Reading University on student safety and any other concerns or issues that the student may have.  

On the 5th October the team attended the 2nd Faith Summit at Reading Police Station. This was well attended & was very successful.

PCSO Kevin Willis is the lead person for any environmental issues in the area.

Following reports of drug dealing in Kings Meadow the team have been regularly patrolling the area to disrupt any criminal activity and hope to gather intelligence which may lead to arrests
