Witney Neighbourhood Management Update - October

Neighbourhood Specialist Office PC Duncan Johnson brings this month's update:

"September has been a very busy time for the Witney team. Underage drinking and the associated anti-social behaviour has been a big issue again this month. On Friday 21 September the team seized 17 cans of lager, seven large bottles of WKD, one large bottle of Smirnoff Ice, one large bottle of cider, one large bottle of Vodka, one large bottle of Malibu and two large bottles of Red Russian champagne from groups of young people. The team has contacted all of the parents of the young people involved. They were all under 18 years old.

"We will continue to target alcohol and tobacco seizures to help us with our problems with anti-social behaviour around the town.

"We are also targeting cyclists who continually break the law by riding on the pavement or at night without lights."

Witney
"Underage drinking and anti-social behaviour has been a problem in the town and the team are currently targeting this issue."

Ducklington
"It has been very quiet in the village this month with no crimes of note. Extra patrols in the area of the allotments seem to have stopped our thieves responsible for so many problems last month. There have been no further thefts this month.”

Hailey
"No incidents of note"

Leafield
"There was a theft of a motorcycle from the village which hasn't been recovered yet."

Crawley
"No incidents of note"

Curbridge
"No incidents of note"

Minster Lovell
"There was one minor criminal damage incident."

Ramsden
"No incidents of note."

"It has been really peaceful in our villages this month. Please watch out for PCSO Hilary Rabson who has been out and about in the rural areas and will continue to do so."
