Anti-social behaviour and alcohol concerns in report


A report by Thame’s neighbourhood policing team has highlighted concerns over anti-social behaviour.

The report pinpoints Southern Road Recreation Ground as an area for concern.

But it does say that due to persistent patrols by 
police, there has been fewer 
disturbances from young people and nuisance vehicles in recent weeks.

The report read: “However, there are still a significant number of young people gathering within the recreational area, especially outside the football changing rooms.

“We would like to remind everyone that this area is a designated no-alcohol zone, and we will continue to challenge underage drinkers and seize alcohol when seen.”

It added: “We have recently confiscated alcohol from underage drinkers in the Whites Field area of Chinnor.

“Letters have been sent to parents to inform them and also make them aware of the dangers of underage drinking in a public protected place.”

The report also lists a number of triumphs for the neighbourhood policing team.

These include a man from Chinnor who was caught with drug paraphernalia in a public park being given an anti-social behaviour contract.

A man was also arrested 
for possession of two 
offensive weapons in 
Wheatley. He was charged and will appear at Crown Court.

Another man, who was caught stealing plants from gardens in the Thame area was charged and given a 
community service order.

A have your say meeting will be held at the memorial hall in Chinnor Road Towersey on October 21 at 11am.

At the meeting residents will have the opportunity to quiz PCSO Jacky Madden on the work of the police, and 
issues affecting them and their area.
