E-Cops - Your weekly news 31-MAY-2011

Firstly, I wanted to let you all know that the enquiry office at Histon Police Station and Sawston Police Station will be closed next week (w/c 30th June 2011).

I have had a very busy week dealing with neighbourhood disputes incident reports and crime enquiries in Bar Hill.

On Sunday, 22 May there was a report of criminal damage in Gladeside Bar Hill. The report came through as a of group of 8 youths were seen smashing up the playpark and then trying to set up fire to the climbing ropes.

Police responded in less then 10 minutes, and found the 8 youths playing in the area, these youths were all checked by the police and none of them were known or wanted to us. There was no damage to the property, no offences committed. Youths were advised to keep the noise down, but they were not doing anything wrong.

On Tuesday, 24th May there was a respond of suspicious activity. The report came through as some youths were trespassing into the Primary School grounds. I was on duty and dealt with this report, after conducting a thorough area search round the school premises, there was no sign of any damage to the school gate or the fence.I then got into conversation with a group of people that were playing football in the village green close to the school, they admitted that the football went into the school premises and one of them went in to fetch the football back.

On Friday, 20th May I and PCSO Smith carried out speed check's in Oakington Road, Dry Drayton. As a result seven motorists were seen driving in excess of the speed limit. All these drivers have now been issued with warning letter.
