POLICE TEAM UPDATE.
Mark Littlewood and myself have now been put in post
as The Tisbury Neighbourhood Policing Team.
are currently preparing things to ‘go live’ on the
15th of January 2007.
The Tisbury Neighbourhood Police Team Area
covers the following communities:
Ansty, Berwick St Leonard, Berwick
St John, Charlton, Chicklade, Chilmark, Chicksgrove, The Coombes,
The Donheads, The Fonthills, Fovant, The Hatches, Hindon, Higher
Pertwood, Ludwell, Newtown, Ridge, Swallowcliffe, Sutton Mandeville,
Tollard Royal, Wardour and West Tisbury.
We will be approaching
all of the communities via Parish Councils over the next month
or so to find out what problems that you have that we may be able
to help you with.
I will also be routinely working on
a Thursday evening at Tisbury
Police Station and will open the
Police Station between 1800hrs and 2000hrs. If you have a problem
that you wish to discuss please feel free to drop in and talk to
either myself or Mark. You can also e-mail either of us using the
following e-mail addresses: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com Once we have built up
a picture of what the problems are we will do our very best to
The Mere Neighbourhood
Police Team is due to ‘go live’ in April 2007
NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH – DON’T
Neighbourhood Watch was created in the mid 1980s
and basically gave structure and a name to something that most
of us do, or certainly should do as a matter of course. To what
am I referring? Well, put simply it is looking out for yourself
and your neighbours. Recently Neighbourhood Watch has become to
some of you something menacing, something that takes up too much
time and effort, something that is above and beyond the call of
duty. So what can I do to help you to put some life back into Neighbourhood
Watch? Neighbourhood Watch is NOT time consuming, it is NOT lots
of work, it is NOT something that is beyond anyone’s call
of duty. Neighbourhood Watch couldn’t be simpler and it benefits
everyone involved. If you are asked to be a part of Neighbourhood
Watch in your village please don’t discount it out of hand,
give it some thought it really isn’t anything to worry about!
POLICE COMMUNITY SUPPORT OFFICERS
The Wiltshire Police is actively looking for more
recruits for the role of PCSO. If you are unemployed (or unhappily
employed and fancy a change) and think that working in your community
(or someone elses community if you prefer) for that community have
you considered working as a PCSO? To find out more you can log
on to www.wiltshire.police.uk and check out the recruitment pages.
There is also a PCSO recruitment awareness evening at Devizes on
the 8th January 2007
