Joint Message from Police and Neighbourhood Watch

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

Good Afternoon from PC 2342 Helen Daveridge Community Co-ordinator for Westbury, Warminster and surrounding villages and the Chair of Wiltshire's Neighbourhood Watch Mr Mike Davidson.

Today we have met to discuss his thoughts on the Community Policing Team Weekly Tasking Group meeting held yesterday.

Mike said he felt "that the meeting was fascinating and to hear how wide a range of crimes, antisocial behaviour etc were discussed weekly at these meeting. The content of the meeting also emphasised the spread of crimes such as modern slavery, domestic abuse, organised crime, county lines and cuckooing activity that all have a direct impact on our communities in West Wiltshire. This type of crime does not only effect larger Market Towns it effects small village communities.

So much of the information that the Police need comes from local residents, as well as through Police Patrols. Small pieces of detailed information from our communities can help the Police solve crime, as well as alerting the police to potential criminal activity.

Reporting crime and unusual activity, is so vital to allow Police to direct limited resources correctly. Whilst telephone number 101 leads you to trained staff who can help gather all the information from the communities, a new online report button on the Wiltshire Police site allows you to provide information if that is your preferred method.

Please remember what may appear trivial to you can be a significant piece of intelligence for the Police investigations.

It is not just Neighbourhood Watch members but also all local residents who can make the difference in keeping their communities safe.

Please report any worrying incident that needs Police attention".

I want to thank Mike for not only coming to our meeting yesterday, but sharing his thoughts with me today and look forward to working with his team over my career.
