Crime and ASB data for your neighbourhood can be found at and can be accessed by anyone. The aim of a panel area meeting is:-
• For the Police to highlight trends in crime and anti-social behaviour, and be available to discuss these in a public forum.
• Listen and take note of concerns presented by individuals, parish councils, volunteer organisations such as Neighbourhood and Speed Watch, elected members and other residents or local associations.
• For the panel to decide areas of concern for the community and Police to consider prioritising as part of local Policing.
• To provide an update on the actions taken in regards to chosen priorities or other emerging trends.
1. Update from Chief Inspector Sutherland
2. Update on current neighbourhood issues and local concerns:
At the last panel meeting concern was raised in relation to Lorries parking at the Four-Wentways roundabout by the garage. We have checked the area on a number of occasions and although there have been Lorries parked around the roundabout it has never been considered dangerous. We consulted with garage staff who had no issue with them being there, and the benefit for the lorry drivers is improved security as there is less opportunity for fuel thefts.

At the last meeting we spoke about the Community Parking Fund, where Parish Councils could pay into the fund to pay for PCSOs to work overtime to deal with specific parking issues. This scheme has now run for its first 6 month period, with 2 Parish Councils opting to pay into the scheme, both of them within the Sawston panel area, Great Shelford and Linton. Since the beginning of the year, PCSOs who have volunteered for the overtime have been conducting patrols for 2 or 3 hours in both villages, concentrating on roads identified by the Parish Councils as problematic because of parking issues. A total of 42 hours of patrols have been completed in each village with 26 tickets issued in Great Shelford and 15 in Linton. This scheme is currently under review and will be discussed at the panel meeting.
We have continued with Operation Hunter a force wide crime prevention initiative focussing predominantly on dwelling burglary. In South Cambridgeshire we have arranged special crime prevention events every month in a different village. All the available PCSOs supported by special constables and our crime prevention officer are in the village for the evening offering advice on how to make your property more secure. We were in Balsham in April and will be in the Sports’ Pavilion in Great Shelford on the 19th of July from 5pm. Anyone is welcome to come along and if you can’t make it you can do the on line home security assessment test, Bad Wolf, to see how secure your property is. You can find the test at: or on the Policing South Cambridgeshire Facebook Page.
