Volunteer Crime Reduction Advisors launched in Chiltern area

A new crime reduction initiative is being piloted in the Chiltern area by Neighbourhood Watch in partnership with Thames Valley Police.
A team of Neighbourhood Watch volunteers has been trained as Crime Reduction Advisors (CRAs) to work with local residents to help ensure that their homes are protected from potential burglars. They will carry out home security surveys and advise on measures that could be taken to improve home security and reduce the risk of falling victim to burglary.
Training for the volunteers has been provided by Thames Valley Police in assessing homes and security weaknesses that criminals have been known to exploit and in the various different crime prevention measures that can be taken to provide further protection.
The free, confidential home security survey and assessment takes approximately 60-90 minutes to complete. All Crime Reduction Advisors are experienced Neighbourhood Watch co-ordinators who have also been CRB checked. Once a survey booking has been confirmed, a security password will be provided to the individual, which the CRA will need to quote on arrival to confirm their identity.
David Alder, Neighbourhood Watch Representative for the Chilterns area, said: “We see this as a very important project. Our CRAs will be pro-actively supporting both TVP and residents in a way we have not tried before. Burglary risk remains a top concern for the local population, so I was delighted to get so many volunteers offering to take the role on. Our trained volunteers can make a positive contribution to better home security, while freeing TVP to focus on other areas of concern.”
Inspector Richard Vine, Neighbourhood Inspector for the Chiltern and South Buckinghamshire policing area, said: “I’m really pleased to see this initiative launching in the Chilterns to help ensure our residents feel safe in their homes and confident in their home security.
“The impact of a burglary is incredibly far-reaching and something that I wouldn’t want anyone to experience. It is excellent to be able to work in partnership with the local Neighbourhood Watch schemes to help keep our communities safe and I look forward to hearing how this progresses.”

New Businesses please read this

The Visitor Information Centre (located in our Community Library)  is looking for information on new businesses based in CSG or Jordans. We keep a Guide listing the local shops and businesses, and our current Guide was compiled and published at least 8 years ago.

We are in the process of updating this list.

So, if you have started a business in CSG or Jordans in the last 8 years or so, we would be very grateful for information about it. It will then be printed in the new Guide.

NOTE - All we have space for is the name of the business (obviously!), a contact number, which should be within CSG or Jordans, and the type of business under which you would like it listed (e.g. Plumbing, Garden Design, Roofing, amongst many others).

These details should be e-mailed to Sue Dorman -  sue@thedormans.net

We intend to publish the new leaflet before Christmas.   Copies will then be available in the Library to take away!

Thanks very much,
Chalfont St Giles Information Centre
