Thame’s neighbourhood policing team have undertaken a successful crackdown on anti-social behaviour in Thame and Chinnor after reports from members of the public.

The team received reports of anti-social behaviour in Southern Road, Thame.

Through carrying out regular patrols they identified the individuals responsible and issued warnings and tickets where necessary in relation to the manner of their driving.

The team also received reports of young people taking drugs in White Field and the Dug Outs in Station Road, Chinnor.

Officers carried out high visibility patrols to disrupt the drug-taking and gathered intelligence to identify those responsible.

Police then carried out stop searches on four young people.

Two of the young people were found to be in possession of drugs and received cannabis warnings from officers.

The police team have also been dealing with similar anti-social behaviour issues in nearby Wheatley.

During a busy month, PCSOs have also been running educational classes in local schools.

Two Thame PCSOs visited Lord Williams Lower School to discuss with Year Eight pupils a career in the police service.

They also attended Aston Rowant School to educate parents of the potential dangers children face on the internet and how they can protect them online.
