Witney Neighbourhood Update December

PC Pam Delahay, Witney Neighbourhood Coordinator, gives the following update: "Whosmybobby continues to be very popular with many hits recorded so if you haven't seen the site yet give it a try!

"The team has continued to focus on anti social behaviour and ran an operation on Smiths Estate recently to target offenders. The team made use of pedal bikes and were out in plain clothes in order to conduct proactive enforcement. The 12th November saw the team deployed to the annual Remembrance Day Parade in Witney. This is one of the more poignant, but enjoyable duties we are involved in throughout the year.

"The PCSO (Police Community Support Officers) recruitment drive has continued all through the last month, with several promising candidates coming through the system. If you are interested in looking into this career opportunity then either look on the website, www.rewardingrole.co.uk or contact the Sgt Evans to assist with any questions that you may have, as vacancies are filling quickly.

"Members of the team were involved with a multi-agency 'Truancy Sweep' in the town to challenge young people who were seen during school hours on Wednesday (29/11). Six teenagers were sent back to school and checks were made with the appropriate educational institution to ensure absence was authorised.

"The Neighbourhood officers have also assisted with several shift covers this month, in support of the response teams across West Oxon, due to shortages. The team have been investigating a despicable criminal damage offence that took place at the cemetery, where numerous headstones were defaced with spray paint. Several arrests have been made as intelligence has come forward and we would appeal to anyone that has any information on this offence to come forward."
