Alert message sent 15/07/2020 17:56:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

Speed checks, investigations surrounding indecent exposures and pub check-ups - just some of the highlights of the work done by Swindon's Neighbourhood Policing Team recently.  

On Thursday 9 July, the following good work was carried out: 

1. Speed and seatbelt checks were completed on Queens Drive, Marlborough Road, Thamesdown Drive and Lady Lane.  Fortunately, no tickets were issued this time.   
2. Two premises that are subject to Closure Orders were visited to check that everything was in order and the occupants were safe. 
3. High visibility patrols looking for illegal drug misuse in Stratton, Greenmeadow, Manchester Road and Broadgreen areas of town.  No major issues were recorded. 
4. Plain clothed officer patrols in Lydiard Park following a recent series of indecent exposures reported in this area. 
5. Nine licensed premises checks to make sure COVID-19 government guidelines were being followed.  No breaches reported. 

Sgt Richard Tottle said: "The work highlighted here is mainly business as usual for the Swindon teams but it's good report our results which were mainly positive on Thursday. 
"Officers carried out seatbelt checks as part of the National Seatbelt Campaign and it was good to know that all motorists spotted were abiding by the law and wearing a belt. 
"Our licensed premises checks  across Swindon highlighted some excellent work by our pubs to enforce the latest government guidelines, including: one way systems, clear signage, track and trace and signing in, screens, cleaning and the segregation of staff roles.
"Our Neighbour Policing Teams are out day and night patrolling the town making sure the public is protected and crime is being prevented but we need people's help too.  If you spot an illegal activity or something suspicious please remember to contact your local officers on 101 or report crime via our website - www.wiltshire.police.uk."
