Neighbourhood Watch Promotion

posted in: News | 0

There is still a need for Neighbourhood Watch

South Bucks District Council and Chiltern District Council Community Safety are actively promoting new and revitalised Neighbourhood Watch Schemes, especially in areas which have experienced incidents of recent burglary. Neighbourhood Watch is one of the biggest and most successful crime prevention initiatives. Behind it lies a simple idea:

Getting together with your neighbours to take action can cut local crime. Everyone knows that the police are there to fight crime, but they need your help to do an effective job, Neighbourhood Watch is all about an active partnership with the police.

Neighbourhood Watch schemes can:

  • • Cut crime and the opportunities for crime
  • • Help and reassure those who live in the area, especially those who are vulnerable.
  • • Encourage neighbourliness and closer communities.

Create a better place to live, work and play.

Neighbourhood Watch is not just about reducing burglary figures – it’s about creating communities who care. It brings local people together and can make a real contribution to improving their lives. The activity of Neighbourhood Watch members can foster a new community spirit and a belief in the community’s ability to tackle problems. At the same time, you feel secure, knowing your neighbours watching out for you and your property.

What can Neighbourhood Watch schemes do?

These are the key steps to targeting and reducing crime and the fear of crime in an area.

In consultation with your local police:

  • • Get a picture of local crime
  • • Conduct a ‘fear of crime’ survey
  • • Target crimes you can have a real impact on
  • • Identify the opportunities for crime
  • • Form an action plan to tackle the problem
  • • Block or reduce opportunities for the criminal

If you are interested about getting involved in Neighbourhood Watch and live in the South Bucks or Chiltern District area then contact the Community Safety Team on 01494 586535 or email communitysafety@chiltern.gov.uk

National Bike Week 9th – 17th June 2018

National Bike Week 9th – 17th June 2018

Chiltern District Council and South Bucks District Council Community Safety Team are encouraging residents to be more conscious of how secure their bikes are and if they haven’t already, get them marked to reduce the risk of theft. Whilst some bicycles are returned to their owners, most are never seen again because they have no markings on them, or no recorded details such as frame serial numbers and size, make, model, colour or a picture.

Bike marking is a simple solution to this problem and means that the police are more likely to identify the bike and return it to the owner: a simple sticker with your postcode on, stuck to the inside of your bike frame, will inform the police of ownership.

To support National Bike Week 2018 Chiltern and South Bucks Community Safety Team will be providing bicycle security marking labels to local residents. Please contact communitysafety@chiltern.gov.uk with ‘bike label’ in the subject line or call us on 01494 586535 to request a bike marking label.

Keep an eye out on Twitter and our website for upcoming bike marking events.

As well as marking your bike there are other ways of preventing and reducing the risk of bike theft:

• Keep your bike in a locked garage or shed, as more than half of bike thefts take place on the victims’ properties.
• Always lock your bike when you are leaving it, use a strong lock and secure it to a bike rack where possible; as thieves can lift bikes over signposts especially if the lock is loose.
• There are other ways to identify your bike, such as recording and registering it on www.immobilise.com or investing in an electronic tagging system.

Ask For Angela Campaign

posted in: News | 0

Pubs and bars within Chiltern and South Bucks are being encouraged to join the Ask for Angela campaign.

The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness of sexual violence and abuse and to stop harassment that some people may experience while out on a date.

If anyone feels unsafe or threatened on a date, they can ask a staff member for Angela and they will make sure that they are ok and arrange for them to get home safely.

Every pub or bar that supports the scheme will have an Ask for Angela sticker in the front door/window and an Ask for Angela poster in the toilets.

For the full list of pubs and bars that support Ask for Angela please visit: www.chiltern.gov.uk/askforangela or www.southbucks.gov.uk/askforangela

Please contact Chiltern and South Bucks District Council’s Community Safety team via 01494 586535 or email communitysafety@chiltern.gov.uk if you would like to sign up to the Ask for Angela campaign.

Accessible Burnham Day – Saturday May 12th

posted in: News | 0

The Burnham Action Group (which is part of the Burnham Health Promotion Trust) are organising an Accessible Burnham Day event to encourage businesses and the general public to understand the needs of the disabled community.

In Burnham, we call the group Accessibility rather than a reference to disability, as it then includes everyone – mums with prams, a person not too stable on their feet, vulnerable adults who may not have a clear physical disability that one can see and others in a similar capacity.

The Burnham event has been organised on Saturday May 12th 10am –  2pm.

It will be based in Haarts, chosen for its central position of the High Street.

We are borrowing wheelchairs and one of the activities is to get a pair – a sitter and a pusher – to walk to a specific shop, collect something and return to Haarts.

There will be other items in Haarts during the event, items that restrict sight or sound or physical movement and members of the public visiting will be encouraged to wear these items and try and appreciate the restrictions imposed.
