The Aylesbury Vale Neighbourhood Policing Team is asking residents to report any suspicious activity to us immediately in order to tackle rural crime, gather vital intelligence and target rural offenders.
Rural crime remains a high priority for Thames Valley Police and the Aylesbury LPA is committed to supporting and protecting rural communities that often feel vulnerable and isolated. The neighbourhood policing teams will not be complacent and continue to actively police the rural areas of Aylesbury Vale in order to disrupt and deter criminal activity.
The Force Intelligence Bureau is working closely with rural communities to build up an overall intelligence picture surrounding rural crime. Gathering intelligence and information is a vital part of investigating crime and it can’t be done without the public’s help. It is this intelligence which will allow us to find, prosecute and convict the people who are committing the crimes which are affecting rural communities the most.
Insp James Davies, said: “We value input from the public to gather intelligence and help us progress police investigations related to rural offending.Your local policing team will have a better chance of catching people committing rural crime offences, if the incident is reported at the time and there are no delays.
“It’s also extremely important to report anything you might find unusual or suspicious, however unimportant it may seem at the time, as soon as you see it. Please don’t wait to make the call”.
If you have information or intelligence you would like to share with Thames Valley Police, no matter how big or small, please either email FIBruralcrime@thamesvalley.pnn.police.uk or call the 24 hour, non-emergency number 101. If you believe it is a crime in progress, please always dial 999.
If you don’t want to speak directly to the police you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at www.crimestoppers-uk.org. (opens new window) No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
