Bicester Rural Neighbourhood Update For June

Posted: 10/06/2008 16:56:51

This month’s update is brought to you by Sgt Dave Hibbert:

In the last few months the Bicester Rural neighbourhood team have been busy working on the three priorities for the area:

1. Excess Speed
2. Road Safety
3. Groups of youths gathering

PCs Carolyn Brown and Shaun Sullivan have been carrying out speed enforcement checks throughout the area and a number of drivers have received warnings about their speed and a few received fixed penalty fines.

I’m delighted to announce Mr Mike Kerford-Byrnes has been elected the chair of the Bicester Rural Neighbourhood Action Group (NAG) and he chaired his first meeting on the 19th May. Mike is also the chair for Finmere Parish Council and brings a wealth of experience to the role.

Work on the three priorities is progressing and some quick wins have been made in respect of road safety; for example two special mirrors have been purchased for a dangerous section of road at Arncott. These were financed by the MoD at Arncott as a result of an approach by one of the NAG members, Mark Waite, who is an MoD police officer.

The PCSOs have been busy carrying out high visibility patrols across the area and ran a community event at Arncott, giving out crime reduction advice and talking to people about their role.

We are still experiencing thefts of metal of all sorts, but particularly lead from church roofs. Please do keep an eye out for any suspicious activity around your local church, school or neighbours houses and let us know on the 08458 505 505 number, or the 999 emergency number if you think you see people actually in the process of removing lead.

The good news is that 11 people have been arrested in connection with metal thefts and 60 offences have been detected, with a number of these as a result of information from the public, so keep up the good work.

We are also still having thefts of quad bikes and caravans from barns and garages, so if you have one of these items please ensure that you do all you can to protect it. The crime prevention officer at Bicester, David Campbell, is only too happy to give advice on the latest anti-theft devices, and will come to your home to discuss these with you.

This will be my last update as the Sergeant for the rural area, as I am moving to a new post at Headquarters on 16 June. I would like to thank all of you that have supported my officers and I in our efforts to police your area and I hope that with the introduction of the PCSOs you will begin to see more of a policing presence and reduction in crime.

If you would like to contact the team, you can continue to do so via the general Force number, 0845 8 505 505, or email them at [email protected]

You are lucky enough to live, and in some cases work, in an area that has a relatively low crime and disorder rate and I hope this continues to be the case. All the best.
