Rural Police Monthly Blog

Welcome to our Rural Police monthly blog.  After numerous conversations between local village/parish magazine editors and the Rural Police, Shipston Safer Neighbourhood team.  All parties have agreed that it would be both informative and useful to readers if the Shipston SNT produces a monthly article to go into all of the local magazines.

We believe that it would be of interest to readers to receive an update on some of the work that we have been involved in and to find out what our aims are and to also find out what we are trying to achieve.  The article will also cover any other important information that we feel may be of interest.

Our rural SNT are based at Shipston Police Station, West Street, Shipston on Stour.  The SNT cover an extremely vast patch which includes many different areas such as Shipston on Stour, Armscote, Blackwell, Crimscote, Darlingscott, Ilmington, Newbold on Stour, Tredington, Whitchurch, Ascott, Barton on The Heath, Cherington, Great Wolford, Little Compton, Little Wolford, Long Compton, Stourton, Whichford, Butlers Marston, Oxhill, Pillerton Hersey, Pillerton Priors, Sunrising, Tysoe, Whatcote, Alderminster, Ettington, Goldicote, Halford, Loxley, Aylesmore, Barcheston, Willington, Brailes, Burmington, Compton Wynyates, Honnington, Idlicote, Stretton on Fosse, Sutton under Brailes, Tidmington, Winderton, Polsworth, Admington, Whinstone, Atherstone on Stour, Long Marston, Quinton and Preston on Stour.

To those of you who are still reading and are not too exhausted from that list you can see we cover a huge patch which comprises many different villages.  However, although we only have a small team working out of Shipston Police Station, we have a very good team who enjoy working throughout this area and who are very dedicated to preventing crime and to protecting the local community from harm.

The team consists of one Sergeant, two Police Officers, three Police Community Support Officers and a front office clerk.

The team employ a multi-agency approach to help us carry out our roles and to serve our local community.  Other people/agencies that we work alongside include the Stratford District Anti-Social behaviour officer (Kully Takhar), local housing associations, Drug Awareness Shipston (D.A.S.H), local councils, the P.C.S.O school liaison officer (Guy Blacklock), other Police forces and many more.

The SNT also attend, share local information and listen to any community issues or concerns at Stratford District Councils Community Forum meetings.  Members of the public are encouraged to attend to voice their opinions.  The next meeting is to be held at Quinton Village Hall on the 26th of February 2009.  The SNT will hold a community surgery between 1800 hrs and 1900 hrs and the forum will commence from 1900 hrs, onwards.

Shipston Police Station is open for enquiries from Monday-Friday, between 0800 hrs and 1600hrs with the office closing for one hour between 1300 and 1400 hrs.
