Alert message sent 29/07/2022 12:09:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

The Neighbourhood Team
The Geographic Neighbourhood Team for Slough dedicates officers to specific areas for problems identified by the community and through reporting. A large part of our role is engaging with communities and the groups within. So please feel free to contact us if you would like us to attend any of your events. Some examples of recent events we have attended:
Langley Carnival
Castleview school fun day
Jubilee celebrations
Foxborough community surgery
A number of talks to different schools
Mini Police scheme running at Colnbrook Primary
Vaisakhi parade

Slough is split into three sectors: North, South and East. Each sector has a sergeant and a team of PCs and PCSOs working to the neighbourhood areas. The East covers Wexham/Central, Langley, Foxborough, Colnbrook and Poyle. I am the Sergeant for the East team, Lee Gray.
We also work closely with partner agencies including SBC, housing, social care and CMHT and we hold monthly meetings where we come together as partner agencies to discuss new and ongoing concerns and how we can tackle those identified issues together, which we call Sector Tasking.
We also work closely with the Problem Solving Team here at Slough Police Station who cover the whole of Slough, but are currently looking at the issues surrounding Kederminster park and the associated youths.

The East Team currently consists of:
Sgt 6876 Lee Gray
PC 6800 Andy Cook
PC 7576 Natalie Boyd (Currently attached to a response team as an Acting Sergeant)
PC 7851 Katie O’Neill (Also currently attached to a response team as an Acting Sergeant)
PCSO 9521 Terrie Lapworth
PCSO 9994 Jacob Brown
PCSO 9890 Jordon Dewhurst

I am pleased to introduce PCSO Meghan Gormley to the team. Meghan has just joined the team and is going through her tutored patrol phase before joining us on the East.
Unfortunately we have had to say farewell to a few PCSO’s of late, Dace Sainsbury and Jamie Pennicard who have both joined as PC’s. Shaila Lloyd who has gone off to work in a college.
We have a number of PC and PCSO vacancies currently which we are recruiting into, both internally and externally.

Join our team and help protect our communities. #proudtobeTVP

School Patrols
The PCSOs will rotate around the schools on the area to provide hi-visibility presence at the beginning and end of the school days. They do various talks and presentations to pupils. They have worked with the schools over the past term to achieve this. 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 I 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.

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.

Patrol Plan
The team are focusing on issues in the following areas around the East of Slough with hi-visibility patrols to deter crime & reassure the community. The team work with partner agencies and the community to try and find locally identified solutions to reduce crime & ASB.

Our current priorities are:
Kederminster Park – For ASB from teenagers
Drug dealing around Aldin Avenue
Trelawney Avenue shops – ASB
Common Road and surrounding - off road bikes
Crown Meadow – ASB
Maplin Park – ASB and drug taking
Stratfield Road – ASB and drug dealing
Lyons Way – ASB, drug dealing.
If you are a victim or witness to an offence, report it. Without notification we cannot assist. Most of what you report will be of an information/intelligence value, that on it’s own may not be enough, but could be that final piece of information joining the dots and piecing the puzzle together. Don’t assume someone else has told us.
We do have to triage calls and there may be times where you report something and you will not have an officer or PCSO attending to see you about this, but please be rest assured it is all logged and it will make its way through to us so we can look at targeting our resources where they are needed most and have a good overview of the issues on our specific areas.

You can report directly to an officer or you can contact your Neighbourhood Team on
You should continue to contact us by phone on 101 (non-emergency number) or via online reporting for crimes or in an emergency where something is happening there and then or there is a risk to safety or property please call 999.

Please follow us our Facebook and Twitter pages (TVP Slough) to keep up to date on some of the work of the NH teams and details of upcoming events/community meetings.
