The following update from the Theale PCSO has just been issued. You can get these updates and police alerts sent to you automatically on signing up to Thames Valley Police Alerts.

The Have Your Say Meeting outside the Co-op on Sunday 27th April will be held between 10 and 11 a.m.

Hello my name is Michael Sturgess I am the new PCSO for your area I hope everyone is well. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me on my email which is found below. If you need to report a crime please contact 101 or 999.
Information about your area
March has been a fairly good month in general. Although we have had a rise in the number of burglary non dwellings in the Englefield area where tools have been stolen from the owners sheds, if you see or hear of anything suspicious during the night please call 999 or the 101 number.  Crime statistics for the period of April 2013 to February 2014 all crime is down by 3% is as follows. Burglary dwellings are down by 28%, Burglary non- dwellings are down by 7%, vehicle crime down by 16%. Also Anti Social Behaviour is down to less than one report per day.
Our ongoing appeal for information from members of the public is as important as ever as we continue to tackle the problems that affect you in our community. Please report any suspicious activity immediately to Thames Valley Police either on the non-emergency number 101, or if a crime is taking place please call 999.
‘Have Your Say’ meeting
Sunday 27th April - Outside The Co-operative High Street, Theale.
Anti-Social Behaviour
If you experience any anti-social behaviour, please call in any incidents on the 101 non-emergency number (or in the case of an emergency dial 999) so that we may attend and deal with the situation as necessary. We have experienced a substantial decrease in the amount of ASB committed so far this year compared with this time last year, and we are continually working to decrease this figure further.
Crime Prevention
The Neighbourhood team are always happy to come out to your home and provide you with some crime prevention advice on the back of a home security assessment. If you would like to book an appointment please contact PCSO Michael Sturgess
Neighbourhood Watch, Theale Area
Stats show that streets that run effective Neighbourhood Watch Schemes do in fact contribute to reducing local crime and I am keen to recruit more coordinators for the area. Please do register your interest at one of our door knocks detailed below with any of the officers and learn more about how you could become involved in the scheme. Alternatively call the 101 police non-emergency number and register your interest to myself. On average you will only be required to spend three hours a month running your street Watch.
Neighbourhood Action Group (NAG)
If you have any issues you would like to be discussed by the group or feel that you think should be a neighbourhood priority please email me If you are a resident of Theale or belong to a group or organisation that has a stake in either Neighbourhood’s and would like to become a NAG member to help with solving Neighbourhood problems please contact the above email address.
Neighbourhood Priorities
We are currently focusing on tackling Anti-Social behaviour and issues we are experiencing in the industrial area. The Neighbourhood Action Group will continue to review the priorities and other potential priorities can be considered. If you have specific concerns about crime or disorder in the Theale neighbourhood please email the address above.
