Our priority is keep people safe

This blog by PC Gareth Tanner, an officer in South Cambs, is part of the force’s May campaign to raise awareness of vulnerable adults and the risks they face.

Our number one priority is to keep people safe from harm. We do this by working with our partner agencies and this case was a great example of how it works.

Social services staff visited a bungalow in South Cambs District Council (SCDC) sheltered housing to provide care and medication to an elderly man but found themselves refused entry by his daughter who also lived there.

The man, his wife and the daughter were not in any immediate danger but it was clear that, in the long term, he would suffer significant harm.

The three agencies – social services, SCDC and police – got together and shared information to get a full picture of what was happening. Our enquiries suggested the daughter may have been abusive to her parents: controlling them with intimidation and threats of violence, restricting their use of the telephone and preventing them from using the whole of their bungalow, forcing them both to live solely in the small box room.

Together we were able to formulate a plan to deal with the complicated issues and safeguard the parents, who were too vulnerable to solve the problem themselves and too intimidated to call for help.

We booked a hearing at court and agency staff worked together into the night to prepare.

I attended Cambridge County Court with Claire Gilbey of South Cambs District Council and obtained an interim injunction with immediate effect to prevent any nuisance, abusive or threatening behaviour.

After serving the injunction later that same day, Claire and I explained to the whole family that their living situation was harmful and that the injunction was necessary to change it for the better, providing them all with freedom and independence.

The daughter left the bungalow voluntarily and accepted SCDC’s offer of temporary housing. On May 5, a court injunction was granted which forbids her from residing overnight or visiting her parents without their permission. It also orders her not to cause nuisance or annoyance or to harass, threaten or be abusive to anyone at the property.

Social services are now also free to provide appropriate care to the mother and father who have thanked agencies for restoring control of their home to them.

By working together with our partner agencies, we helped a vulnerable couple who weren’t able to help themselves.

Below is a short video released as part of our campaign, which runs throughout May.

Operation Oaklands Phase Two – Update

Operation Oaklands – Tackling crime across South Cambs
The format for Operation Oaklands is changing this week; each Neighbourhood Sector team will be covering a village on their beat for a three week period. Three South Cambridgeshire villages will be included at the same time.

Officers will focus on crime prevention measures, and provide security advice to residents in order to combat burglary, vehicle crime and theft.
South Cambridgeshire is a large rural community, and crime analysis has shown the area does not follow an identifiable crime pattern, as you might see in an urban area. Therefore crime prevention and intelligence led patrols are key factors to reduce crime levels.
Regular information and updates will be posted via Ecops (www.ecops.org.uk) and Neighbourhood Watch messaging (http://www.ourwatch.org.uk) as well as on our twitter account http://www.twitter.com/southcambscops
Officers will be offering residents Smartwater property coding kits for a reduced price of £10, plus shed and window alarms at cost price.
Please find below a guide with dates when we will be visiting various villages and towns over the coming months. If you need advice on home, shed or vehicle security and don’t live in the villages listed below, please call 101 and to speak to your local PCSO.
Date Location
30/03/2015 – 19/04/2015 Cottenham, Whittlesford, & Barton

20/03/2015 – 10/05/2015 Bar Hill, Thriplow, & Gamlingay

11/05/2015 -31/05/2015 Longstanton, Great & Little Wilbraham, & Hardwick

01/06/2015- 21/06/2015 Milton, Sawston, & Haslingfield

22/06/2015 – 12/07/2015 Waterbeach, Ickleton & Hinxton, plus Great & Little Eversden

13/07/2015 – 02/08/2015 Girton, Fulbourn, & Harlton

03/08/2015 – 23/08/2015 Landbeach, Balsham, & Guilden Morden, Steeple Morden, + Litlington

N.B. This table will be updated each month, with new information. The deployment of officers may be changed in certain circumstances according to current policing needs.
