Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police
I have received loads of emails re speeding in local roads and how local residents, can deal with that issue.
The answer - is get together in your road and set up a Community Speedwatch. We unfortunately are no longer involved in this initiative and this has just been put out by the PCC:
Community SpeedWatch Scheme The Community SpeedWatch scheme is set to provide communities with equipment and training to monitor speeding in their area.
Thanks to a new partnership with Community SpeedWatch UK, a not-for-profit social enterprise that provides support for SpeedWatch schemes, Thames Valley have taken a major step forward in the fight to improve road safety.
Organised by the Office of the Police & Crime Commissioner, SpeedWatch groups will be provided with a starter kit on a loan basis, including a speed detection device, to help volunteers to assist in the battle against speeding motorists.
Before community teams can be deployed to the roadside, they will undergo a number of training sessions online. Risk assessments will be completed by police to ensure safety at the roadside.
The new online platform allows group-related activities to be self-regulated via an online calendar and also provides vehicle make recognition training. DVLA pre-checks logged registration numbers for authenticity before automatically passing data on to the police for further processing. Existing Community SpeedWatch groups will be contact directly about restarting activity once coronavirus restrictions allow.
A six month trial will take place in pre-selected locations in order to test the new online platform and get feedback from volunteers. If successful the new scheme, including the loan of equipment will be rolled out to new and existing groups towards the end of 2021.
For more information, if required, please email email@example.com.
Further information on Community Speedwatch Online can be found at: https://communityspeedwatch.org/FRONT-v2-Home.php.
You need to gather sufficient support to have an Exec Committee of at least 3 members, who register on the above website. Once that has been done, our team of Community Safety Team volunteers, who used to do all our CSWs, will assist and support.
Once you have set up your scheme online, email me if you need their support.
NEXT: ANOTHER SEXTORTION:
A young man has exchanged messages with a woman he had never met, on Instagram and Snapchat. He then engaged in explicit messages and sent intimate photos of himself. The minute they were sent, the person on the other end changed and a demand for money was sent, or the texts, photos and video would be shared with everyone in his personal address book !
The victim has sent a total of £394 pounds so far. The victim has no idea who the woman was, where she lived nor has any contact details !
ONCE AGAIN – PLEASE DO NOT SAY, WRITE, TEXT, PHOTOGRAPH, VIDEO ANYTHING ON LINE, YOU WOULD NOT BE HAPPY FOR YOUR FAMILY, RELATIVES, FRIENDS, NEIGHBOURS, WORK COLLEAGUES – EMPLOYER – EVERYONE IN YOUR PERSONAL ADDRESS BOOK / CONTACT LIST - TO SEE

NEWS UPDATE FROM NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH
Why not start a new scheme in your street - A scheme is a group of members, usually in the same road or area, which has a coordinator to manage the scheme.
In the last week, we have had inquiries from various residents and we are delighted to announce that three new schemes are being set up.
There are many benefits to starting a scheme - awareness of types of crimes that affect our communities such as vehicle crime and advice on scams, access to CCTV, for instance.
Neighbourhood Watch is not just about crime awareness though. It's about supporting communities and tackling issues within them like, loneliness and vulnerability.
Being aware of these issues will enable you to be proactive in your community to help those in our communities that need support.
Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be delighted to assist.
Valerie Pike, Chairman of Windsor & Ascot NHW Association.
