Neighbourhood Police clean up during Colnbrook Action Week!
Neighbourhood Police cleaned up during Colnbrook Action Week … in both senses. Not content with just carrying out burglary risk assessments, helping to clear away old sandbags, or warn HGV drivers about the spate of diesel thefts, they even found time to carry out drug tests, vehicle checks, and make a couple of arrests!
What a week it’s been for the Neighbourhood Policing team.
Last week’s Colnbrook Action Week held in conjunction with local councils gave police the opportunity to carry out over 100 burglary risk assessments with residents on Vicarage Way, and help get rid of sandbags still remaining on Albany Park.
On the Colnbrook By-pass police took the time to talk to HGV drivers to tell them about the risks associated with the spate of diesel thefts recently. New multi-language signs have been erected.
They carried out random vehicle checks on Poyle and Horton Roads, using ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) technology, with some drivers charged for driving without insurance.
All the local pubs were tested for drug with swabs sent for analysis. Should any come back positive they will be issued with warnings, or their licenses will be reviewed.
At least one arrest was made, a male on suspicion of burglary.
