On the Beat… Henley Police Update

Parking issues at Ancastle Green
Increased high-visibility patrols were made of the area and parking tickets were issued which has alleviated the problem. The neighbourhood team will continue to monitor the situation and support the residents.

The neighbourhood team carried out a ‘Speed Watch’ operation and put up signs along Station Road about adhering to the speed limit. The residents have reported they have noticed that drivers are now slowing down along Station Road.

As a result of residents’ concerns about speeding following our “Have Your Say” meeting the PCSOs carried out a Speed Watch on the Fair Mile, Henley. Over 40 drivers were found to be exceeding the speed limit and will be sent warning letters.

Anti-social behaviour (ASB)
Further ongoing ASB has been reported in both Henley town. The team are carrying out pro-active patrols in the areas of concern. Further work is ongoing with the families of those committing the ASB which will now involve further intervention with our partnership agencies.

PCSO Davey has worked hard on setting up Shop Watch around Henley. He has visited all the shops and reviewed their security. He has been promoting the Store Net service which has met with a lot of interest.

Three suspects who stole alcohol from Waitrose were apprehended by the town PCSOs. As a result arrests were made. The stolen items were returned to the store. Due to an increase in thefts from Waitrose the police have been stepping up patrols in and around the area.

Fly Tipping
