    February 2018.

    Welcome to the Stafford Local Policing Team, I am Chief Inspector Gemma Ward, Commander for Stafford Local Policing Team (LPT).

    Over November and December 2017, we have seen an increase in vehicle related crime in the South-Eastern area of Stafford Borough (Baswich, Weeping Cross, Milford, Haywood, Milwich, Chartley and Hixon) and an increase in reports of residential burglaries. At this point, we cannot confirm that the incidents are linked, however investigations are continuing into these offences in partnership with our Force Safeguarding and Investigation department.

    In response, we have increased high visibility patrols in the areas affected, and our Neighbourhood Team will continue to link in with key community contacts and residents to provide crime prevention advice whilst we follow up all lines of enquiry in these investigations. Throughout January, we will be utilising the mobile Police station in these areas of Stafford Borough to ensure that residents have the opportunity to discuss their concerns with Officers. We will also be present at key Neighbourhood Watch Meetings and other community events to engage with our communities.

    In December 2017, another series of residential burglaries were experienced in the North of Stafford LPT and determined work from local police officers who carried out set actions (as part of a trigger plan in response to reports) resulted in the arrest and charge of a male with burglary, who remains in prison at this time.

    As we continue to pursue others committing these offences, please report any suspicious activity to Staffordshire Police via 101 or anonymously via Crime Stoppers. If you have any information relating to crimes in your area, please get in touch as small pieces of information can be extremely valuable in wider investigations.

    Overall crime for the Stafford Local Policing area remains low and measures put in place to tackle anti-social behaviour over the summer and autumn months – particularly around the Town Centre area have proved effective to date, with significantly fewer incidents now being reported.

Police Visibility

 

The information in this section provides an overview of police visibility, split into 2 main officer types – Police Officer (PO) and Police Community Support Officer (PCSO). Other officer types are not included in this data below.

Visibility is calculated by the total number of hours officers spend out in the communities out in the streets, away from police stations.

    The visuals display the time officers spend visible in their communities.

    This data collection is from the officer’s personal handheld radio which sends an update every 5 minutes from booking on shift to booking off shift, so each reading received from the device is classed as 5 minutes visibility.

    Readings can only be taken when the officer is away from the Police Station as the areas are geo-fenced not to record updates when the officer is in the station.

    Standard policing duties where the officer is away from the Police Station such as being located at Custody Suites etc. are not counted in the visibility figures.
