OCTOBER 2011

NEW TELEPHONE NUMBER FOR CONTACTING THE POLICE.

We all know, or should know, that in an emergency, i.e. when the Nee-nahs and flashing blue lights are required that the number to dial is Ď999í. Simple isnít it? Three digits that everyone knows, ask for Fire, Police or Ambulance and the emergency services are on their way at Warp speed.

To contact the Police when it is not an emergency has always been a bit of a problem.

What is the number? Itís 0845 something isnít it? Where can I find it? I wrote it down somewhere? Oh blow it Iíll just dial Ď999í and that will suffice.

And that Ladies and gentlemen is where the problem arises. It was just too complicated unless you knew the number or had easy access to it. Sadly there have been occasions whereby the Ď999í number has been used in non-emergency situations and that has tied up resources that could be used on genuine emergencies.

So in September a new NON-EMERGENCY Police number went live.

101

If you dial 101 you will be put through to the nearest available Police Control Room who will be able to deal with your enquiry.

Even I can remember that number so letís hope it makes life easier all round.

APOLOGIES Ė WE JUST COULDNíT MAKE IT.

An apology is due. We were supposed to attend Shrewton for a Ďconsultationí last month. This is when we tip up and you have the opportunity to come along and tell us what is bothering you and how we can help. Police stuff obviously, we donít want hear about the fact you arenít happy with the dresses on Strictly Come Dancing or the price of petrol or the fact that you just canít get decent fresh fish anymore.

Anyway I digress, Will and Shona who were on their way to Shrewton were diverted to a serious road traffic collision and ended up staying there for some time. Such is life. We hope there wasnít a queue round the block!

If you do have a problem that you think we can help you with why donít you try the new 101 number, or e-mail us on amesburynpt@wiltshire.pnn.police.uk

NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH BULLETIN

MAY 2011

A NEW CAR FOR EVERYONE.

I would like to give each and every one of you a new car. Not just any old car though, I would like to give you all a shiny sleek convertible. You can have any car you like as long as it is a convertible. How about a gorgeous red Ferrari 430 spider? Or a Porsche? Yes, what about a Porsche, a silver one or even better how about a sleek British racing green Jaguar or an Aston Martin?

You can have any car you like as after all this is all imaginary. No I havenít won the Spanish / Canadian /Mexican lottery. No, you have to imagine that I have given you a new car and it must be a convertible and the roof must be down. Yes the roof is down you are driving around in a supercar. You must all imagine that your car is a supercar with the top down. How cool is that? Now before you make a quick phone call and summon the men in white coats to come and drag me kicking and screaming into the back of a van bear with me. There is a reason I have been so generous (imaginatively speaking).

Yes as usual when I go off on one there is a crime prevention tip buried deep within.

Imagine you are in your convertible with the roof down and you go shopping or take the dog for a drive to a nice wood or pop to the shops to get some sausages or drive to a field to photograph wild flowers. Are you with me? You park your sleek convertible with the roof down at your destination and get on with whatever it is you are there for.

Before you leave your convertible you look around to see if there is anything left in the car that an opportunist thief may steal. You take everything with you, handbag, wallet, camera, mobile phone, coat, laptop and of course the dog. You couldnít possibly leave anything in your open top sports car could you? It would get nicked wouldnít it?

To a thief every car is a convertible with the roof down.

You leave something in it and he will nick it. Donít. Just donít do it.

SPREAD SOME SUNSHINE WHILST YOU DRIVE.

Most of us drive around the country lanes in these parts on a fairly regular basis, if not daily. Iím willing to wager that quite often you will be out driving when you will have cause to shout (either literally or silently) at a fellow motorist. He (or she of course) will have failed to slow down, speed up, pull over, stop, start, turn, or carry out any number of manoeuvres that fail to live up to your expectations. Possibly even horror of horrors they have not raised a hand to thank you for driving into a ditch to let them pass. No? Itís just me then? Come on we are amongst friends here, admit it, some drivers really get up your nose. Thank you. Right, now what is my point? My point is this; there is probably a good deal of likelihood that on occasion you have been the one irritating the olfactory passages of another. We all think we are wonderful drivers and wish that everyone was as conscientious as we are, but let me assure you we all do it. What is your point, your POINT? Right here it is, SMILE, no matter what, just SMILE. You donít know why they are behaving in that manner, you donít know what they may have on their mind, imminent divorce, recent bereavement, financial worries, car trouble, child trouble, washing machine has just exploded, it could be any number of the things that fill our daily lives.

So smile, getting angry or abusive isnít going to get us anywhere, just smile and spread some sunshine.
