Over the last month the Neighbourhood Team of PC Langtree, PC Clarke, PC Millar, PCSO Sutton, PCSO Lawford, PCSO Freedman, PCSO Humphrey, and PCSO Brooker have been focussing on partnership working to achieve outcomes in the community that matter most to them.
This has included the team patrolling Englefield Green and Egham Hythe where we have seen an increase in ASB and dealing with riders of e-scooters and other persons who have directly been involved in the ASB.  As part of this holistic problem solving approach the Neighbourhood Team have been working with the community teams to provide support to those families who need it and making arrangements to divert youths away from ASB, focussing their attentions on productive studies and activities.  Our dedicated YEO (Youth Engagement Officer) PC Wallace has also been pivotal in ensuring all avenues are explored and the engagement made at the right level.
We have also had complaints about ASB at Sainsbury’s on The Causeway, Egham.  The team have been working in partnership with Sainsbury’s to tackle their instore thefts which have targeted vulnerable people and obtaining the agreement from Sainsbury’s that they will install a barrier to prevent persons entering the underground car park which was being used as a car meet location, with excessive noise.  We can confirm the barrier is on order and they will be installing it ASAP.

OPERATIONS AND EVENTS

Sergeant Nash has been very cruel and has set his team a challenge of visiting every street in their responsible areas over this next month; so please stop and say hello, we’d love to hear about how we can help you and your community.
 
Youth Plan
This month PC Wallace has conducted a joint visit on a young male who is well known to police and social services.  He has gained a place on a course at a local college which he is thrilled about and it is very much hoped that the course will provide him with a focus and will assist him to stay out of trouble.  PC Wallace is currently assisting one young boy and his family due to the amount of times the boy has come to notice during the last couple of months.  This is a work in progress and it is hoped that a return to the routine of school, support and follow up visits from police and social services will assist in helping him to make the right choices. 
PC Wallace has also had meetings with other Youth Engagement Officers as well as meetings with representatives from the independent Fearless Charity.  She is also involved in the planning meetings in relation to Junior Citizen which will be happening in November.
