Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

I am pleased to be bringing you all the first of a bimonthly update on the ongoing work of the Slough Geographic North Sector team. I have, within the last few weeks, taken on the role of Sergeant for the North and have enjoyed getting up to speed with the ongoing work of the team and meeting many residents, local businesses and partner agencies.

We have conducted some exciting work and operations within this time, which I will detail within this newsletter and we look forward to progressing more in the coming weeks. As part of this newsletter we will also be bringing you bimonthly team updates, crime prevention advice and details of any upcoming community events.

I look forward to working in the North Sector and meeting many more of you moving forward.

Good News Stories
A section 23 Misuse Drugs Act warrant was obtained for a property on Farnham Road, Slough and enacted by officers on Slough neighbourhood teams. A quantity of Class A drugs was recovered and a male was arrested on suspicion of drug supply offences. Officers attended Reading Magistrates Court to obtain a closure order for the property due to ongoing anti-social behaviour and drug supply concerns. The property will now be let out to more suitable tenants who will contribute positively to the community.

A two-day operation was conducted in Britwell by Neighbourhood officers from the Slough Problem Solving team. This focussed on anti-social behaviour issues reported in Kennedy Park and the surrounding area. Proactive high-visibility patrols were conducted by vehicle, bicycle and on foot. Positive engagement was had with residents and groups within the park.

An operation was conducted in connection with Slough Police Cadets on licensed premises within Farnham Road and Britwell. 13 Licensed premises were visited in total with a designated Thames Valley Police Licensing Officer.

Following an investigation by PC Ruth Rance, a resident on Farnham Road has plead guilty at Reading Magistrates Court to numerous assault and public order-related offences committed in 2021 against her neighbour. They will be sentenced for these offences in August.

School Patrols
The PCSOs will rotate around the schools on area to provide a high-visibility presence at the beginning and end of the school days. They do various talks and presentations to pupils. They are there to be approached by you, so you can share any issues or problems within the area you live.

Burglary ‘Cocooning’
When a burglary is reported to the Police, the neighbourhood team will do door knocks in the area of the burglary providing crime prevention advice to residents to try and prevent further thefts and deter criminals.

The most important crime prevention advice we can give to deter burglars is to make sure you lock your UPVC door and not just pull it shut! With the warm weather upon us, please ensure all doors and windows are secured on leaving your property.
For more crime prevention advice please visit the Thames Valley Police website.

Empty Car campaign
If the neighbourhood team come across a vehicle that has valuables on show or any insecurities they will attempt to make contact with the owner to make them aware and remove them.

Community Speedwatch
If you are concerned about road safety, specifically speeding in your area, then you can do something about it. is a nationwide initiative to involve communities in dealing with the endemic problem of speeding. Visit the website to find out more or sign up – please contact your local Neighbourhood Police team for help and assistance with this.
