E-Cops - Weekly Update 28-OCT-2011


Its that time of year again - HALLOWE'EN!

We wanted to remind you of a few tips you can take to ensure you have an enjoyable Hallowe’en -
· Ideally children trick or treating should be accompanied by an adult.
· Children should stay in groups, make sure at least one person has a mobile phone on them and not go out too late.
· Children should tell someone where they are going, what route they will be taking and what time to expect them back.
· Not everyone wants to get involved in Hallowe’en and we ask children and parents to leave residents not wanting to take part in peace.
. We do ask that shops do not to sell and parents do not give out eggs or flour to young people, as these can cause damage if thrown at people, vehicles
or property.

As it’s that time of year we will be increasing our patrols to prevent any anti-social behaviour and to ensure the safety of those involved in the Hallowe’en festivities.

If you have any issues or concerns during Hallowe’en, let us know on 0345 456 456 4.

PCSO Mani was on foot patrol in Bar Hill on Sunday 23rd October, and following a report of a rowdy incident at The Fox Public House, he continued his patrol at the skate park. While there, he came across a group of approximately five older youths who walked off when they were approached. One member of this group was seen throwing a bottle into some bushes nearby and was questioned by PSCO Mani. This male was clearly intoxicated and became abusive towards PCSO Mani and refused to leave the area when asked to do so. PS Rogerson also attended and asked the male to leave the area several times, however this was again refused and both officers were met with aggression. The male was arrested for being drunk and disorderly in a public place. He has been charged and will soon be in court for this offence.

I am pleased to say that there have been no other reported crimes within Bar Hill since your last e-cops update.

Kind regards
