Local priorities

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

  1. Drug Usage The issue of drug supply and use within Buckingham and surrounding villages continues to be the team’s top priority. There has been a rise in young people using Mephadrone (MCAT) which side effects include a sense of euphoria and alertness. The negative side effects are dependent on the level of purity and can lead to rapid weight loss, blistering of internal organs and skin to name but a few. The team continue to work on gathering intelligence surrounding the use and supply of such substances and urge any concerned parents, family members and friends of those suspected of using illegal substances to contact the local Buckingham District Policing Team. In the past month there have been a number of arrests made in relation to the possession and supply of illegal substances such as cannabis, cocaine and mephadrone.
  2. Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB ). this issue was raised at the Neighbourhood Action Group(NAG) and was to include noise issues when people are walking home after a night in the town drinking, as the sound travels across the old town causing disturbance to the residents.
  3. Burglary to dwellings is still also a team priority although we have had a drop in the reported incidents for this month. We still have dedicated patrols working through the night to ensure that there is a high visible presence in the area.

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.
