Latest message from your NW (March 2017)

We have received the following message from Thames Valley Police sent via Thames Valley Alert.
Michelle Miller (Police, Community Relations Officer, Cherwell LPA)
This is to make you aware that at 5.00 pm yesterday, 20th March, a male has entered a property in Mount Pleasant, Wardington, on the pretence that there was a water leak at the property next door.  Upon entering, the male asked the homeowner to turn off all the taps in the house and empty the cupboard under the kitchen sink.  This is a common distraction method and normally results in rooms such as bedrooms being entered so that items such as cash and jewellery can be stolen.
A dark blue Ford Fiesta was parked nearby at the time and may be connected to the offence.
If someone tries to gain entry to your property using this method, state that you are going to check with your water supplier first to ensure that the leak is genuine and has been reported.  Please also call 101 as soon as you can giving a description of the individual and any vehicles that may be parked nearby that you do not recognise.
Sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch by Alan Craven Watch Co-ordinator for School Lane.

March 27th 2017 update…

Message sent by
Alexander Barrett (Police, Communications Officer, Thames Valley)

Earlier this week, Thames Valley Police was pleased to launch their new force website.

This is the culmination of a collaboration project between Thames Valley Police and Hampshire Constabulary, working with the Police ICT Company and the Digital Policing Programme. The design and operation will be a national solution which is expected to be available to all police forces in the coming years.

We are grateful to the Alert users who completed our survey in April 2016 which influenced the new site, but also to everyone who has provided feedback during the testing phase.

We continue to upload content but trust that users will find this a more resilient and easier to navigate website.

It’s a new look, but the address is the same: – do go and have a look.
