BUR­GLARY, an­ti­so­cial be­hav­iour and speed­ing are the three key fo­cuses for Bea­cons­field po­lice to make life bet­ter in the town.

The team has also iden­ti­fied which ar­eas of the town suf­fer most from the prob­lems, and is con­ce­trat­ing on those places in a bid to stamp out the is­sues.

The pri­or­i­ties have been listed on the Bea­cons­field sec­tion of the Thames Val­ley Po­lice web­site, with Can­dle­mas Lane and Cherry Tree Road noted as the places most vul­ner­a­ble to bur­glary, Holt­spur and Bea­cons­field Old Town suf­fer­ing from anti-so­cial be­hav­iour, and Bar­ing Road, Gre­gories Road and Burkes Road be­ing the speed­ing hotspots.

A state­ment on the web­site says: “The Neigh­bour­hood Polic­ing Team will con­tinue to work to­gether with our part­ner agen­cies, youths and res­i­dents to tackle this. By the use of en­gage­ment, di­ver­sion, prob­lem solv­ing and the ap­pro­pri­ate use of cur­rent anti-so­cial be­hav­iour leg­is­la­tion we will con­tinue to build on the good work that has seen a re­duc­tion in this crime in the past year.”

In a bid to crack­down on speed­ing, the po­lice team is in the process of mon­i­tor­ing traf­fic us­ing a hand held speed in­di­ca­tor de­vice, as well as car­ry­ing out en­force­ment op­er­a­tions.

Po­lice hope that by work­ing with the com­mu­nity and or­gan­i­sa­tions, they will be able to raise aware­ness of it and re­duce speed­ing in Bea­cons­field.

Of­fi­cers are at­tempt­ing to com­bat bur­glar­ies by car­ry­ing out crime re­duc­tion op­er­a­tions in vul­ner­a­ble ar­eas around the town.

The po­lice state­ment says: “Bur­glary is a trau­matic ex­pe­ri­ence for all its vic­tims. The Neigh­bour­hood Polic­ing team will play its part in com­bat­ing bur­glary and will carry out pro-ac­tive crime re­duc­tion op­er­a­tions in ar­eas that are deemed vul­ner­a­ble to this type of crime.”
