The Henley Neighbourhood Police team continue to work with licensing carrying out random drug swabbing at pubs and restaurants throughout the Henley area.
Early on Saturday 4 August, a male wearing pyjamas and nothing on his feet, was found by a member of the public in Vicarage Road walking towards the town centre. The team were able to identify him and contact his family before they realised he was missing.
Knife Surrender Bin at Abingdon Police Station
Operation Sceptre is a campaign to raise awareness of knife crime that is running from the 18–25 September. Thames Valley Police will be visiting some of the schools in the area to talk to the children about the dangers of knives. There will be a surrender bin at the front counter at Abingdon police station during this week where you can safely dispose of any unwanted knives.
On 13 August a second Henley & District Area Forum was held at Henley Town Hall. Representatives from TVP, SOHA housing, Henley Town Council and Goring, Whitchurch, Swyncombe, Nettlebed, South Stoke, Kidmore End and Woodcote Parish Councils were all in attendance. This was an opportunity to freely discuss key concerns and improve communication.
