Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police
FIRST: I attended a meeting last night and was asked if the police monitored all the local / street / community Facebook groups, where people were talking about and reporting crimes in their community. The answer is no. No-one, would be happy, if they believed the police were monitoring these groups !
The question was then asked – are we aware of the crime discussions taking place on these sites, within that community ? The answer is again - no – unless someone in that group, lets us know.
Often our members send me screenshots of entries on this group, not knowing who could assist, so that I can pass them onto the appropriate teams, to get something done.
What would help us and you, is to record the matters on the TVP website as well as local Facebook groups – if we don’t know about a problem, we cannot react and come up with a solution / additional patrols and taskings.
The process is really simple. We are very happy to accept intelligence and information, as well as crime reports online, at the TVP website:
Please save that link as a favourite. On the TVP Website front page are blue links, to report a crime or pass us information. The process could not be simpler and is exactly the same as phoning the 101 number. The information online goes to exactly the same place and given the same importance.
Every day we receive a great deal of information, for which we are really grateful. They are recorded in ours system as ‘Suspicious Other’, ‘Suspicious Person’ and Suspicious Vehicle’. Everyone inside the police Station can see them and respond. When you see reports of a ‘suspicious’ person walking along a road looking into cars with a torch or trying car door handles / Nottingham Knockers in the community, they are from one of these suspicious incident reports, sent to us.
If you part of an online Facebook String, dealing with crime in the local community, please let me know. I can assist and pass it onto the correct group, to get something done !
The same applies to RBWM Council matters, such as parking issues / Street Lights etc. I work closely with all your local Councillors / the Borough Council and can pass on any issues you have. If it is Borough related, you can of course, email it directly to the RBWM Community Wardens at:
NEXT: At the meeting, we also discussed the plans for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee this year. If you are beginning to plan your summer hanging baskets, front gardens visible from the street – the colour scheme for the Jubilee is – purple and white - and Councillors hope the whole Borough is covered in these colours. All the town planting will also be in these colours, from early February, when celebrations begin.
NEXT: Unfortunately – yet another SEXTORTION – which we reord as ‘Blackmail’:
A young man, received a friend’s request from an attractive young woman and they started to facetime each other. She then showed herself naked and asked him, if he would show her his body. Intimate acts then took place.
Immediately afterwards, she informed him she had recorded the whole incident and demanded money. She then created a group chat with him and all the members of his family from his Facebook page and demanded an immediate payment of £50 or she would post the video / images.
She then sent him the images, to show she was serious and demanded £5,800. The young man then sent them a screenshot of his bank statement and they immediately lowered it back down to £50.
He has not sent any money and they are still messaging him threatening to send the images to his family.
YET AGAIN – PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT SAY, WRITE, TEXT, PHOTOGRAPH, VIDEO ANYTHING ONLINE, OR ON YOUR PHONE, YOU WOULD NOT BE HAPPY FOR YOUR FAMILY, RELATIVES, FRIENDS, NEIGHBOURS, WORK COLLEAGUES – EMPLOYER - EVERYONE IN YOUR PERSONAL ADDRESS BOOK / CONTACT LIST - TO SEE !
I am putting several of these out each week. Imagine the hurt and embarrassment they could cause to someone and their family. Please advise everyone you know. These do not only involve young men, but young women and more senior citizens, as well !!!!
I have attached reference numbers to each crime report. If you live in the vicinity of any of the crimes mentioned and have CCTV or a video doorbell, can you please check the footage. If you have any that might be of interest to the police, can you please make contact with us, quoting reference number given.
Alternatively you can call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or email - www.crimestoppers-uk.org

NEWS UPDATE FROM NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH
Hi, I am Valerie Pike, Chair of Windsor & Ascot NHW Association. The Association was formed in September 2019 and our objective was simply to help residents. In setting up the Association, we asked
How can each of us
· help to make our community safer?
· improve its spirit and neighbourliness?
· help the Police to reduce local crime?
· make our own home security better?
Starting up a Neighbourhood Watch scheme in your street is easy, and it’s free. Police statistics show that a Neighbourhood Watch scheme significantly reduces the probability of your house being burgled.
Neighbourhood Watch is about neighbourliness and making our communities and homes safer. It’s about being friendly and caring, and watching out for the elderly and vulnerable too.
Members of Neighbourhood Watch are assisted in a number of ways, including having free home security surveys conducted by a local PCSO, to identify any areas in which security can be improved, and to advise on optimum ways to safeguard against crime and improve personal and household security But most of all Neighbourhood Watch is about helping the Police to keep us safe. They need the support of people who care. If that’s you - join us now!
Please contact us on email@example.com and we will be delighted to assist.
