Buckinghamshire Community Safety Newsletter September 2020

Sunday, October 25th, 2020

The Buckinghamshire Community Safety Newsletter keeps residents informed about the activities of the Community Safety Partnership across the county.

Open the Community Safety Newsletter below to read more about:

  • Hotel Watch: originally a scheme aimed to raise awareness around child exploitation across the hospitality industry, now broadened to include other elements of exploitation, such as modern slavery, county lines (drugs exploitation) and adult exploitation.
  • Theft from Vehicles: most vehicle crime can be prevented – reminders of measures to keep thieves at bay.
  • ‘Stop Loan Sharks’ App: free app offering users advice of what a loan shark is and tell-tale signs to be aware of, including cash loans without paperwork, extortionate interest, use of benefits or bank cards as security and threatening behaviour or violence.
  • ‘Prevent’ Community Roundtable: first virtual ‘Prevent’ Community Roundtable, held on 24th September. Around 70 members of the community including faith leaders, councillors and youth workers had the chance to hear from a Home Office representative on the Prevent strategy during the interactive session.
  • Clocks Go Back: with the darker evenings, advice on keeping our homes safe.
  • Halloween: advice on recommended activities, and unsuitable activities, in the COVID-19 context.
  • Fireworks: similar advice relating to Bonfire Night.
  • Coronavirus Information: link to information on the coronavirus, service changes and details on how to access support across Buckinghamshire.
