Local priorities

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

  1. Cycle Theft / Shoplifting in the Town Centre - Cycle theft has been on the increase in the town centre area in the first quarter of 2014. The issue is being addressed by the Neighbourhood Team through both enforcement and education. The enforcement strand will see a number of high-visibility and covert operations running through spring and summer of 2014, whilst amongst other things the education strand will see TVP carrying out bike marking at Have Your Say meetings and other similar events in the town. Whilst Cycle Theft is currently the number one priority, the operations run will also pay attention to the perennial problem of shoplifting in the precinct area of Abingdon. If you have any concerns or questions regarding cycle security please contact the team on 101 or Email neighbourhood team.
  2. Anti-Social Behaviour - The Neighbourhood Team in partnership with the local Neighbourhood Action Group (NAG) continues to address ASB in all forms in the town. As the better weather approaches we are addressing the ongoing issue of young people gathering in the precinct after school, blocking pathways, cycling on pavements, littering and swearing within the hearing of local shoppers. The NAG also plans to engage with the local schools to positively address this issue. Other ASB hotspots in the town are also being monitored including Peachcroft’s parks and the Grebe Close / Southern Park area of South Abingdon. The team also tackles drink related ASB in the town on weekend evenings.
  3. Neighbourhood Watch - The Town NAG is committed to supporting and expanding Neighbourhood Watch schemes across the town. A number of the current NAG members are already running schemes across the town. However, if you feel that your area would benefit from Neighbourhood Watch and wish to get involved you can contact the team on 101 or Email neighbourhood team.

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.
