Police to hold community event in Micklefield on Thursday 13th August 2015

| August 7, 2015

Thames Valley Police will be setting up a One Stop Pop Up Cop Shop on the grassy area between the Gayhurst flats off Gayhurst Road in Micklefield between 10.00am and 3.00pm on Thursday 13th August 2015.

Youngsters are being invited to test their speed at the community policing event where they’ll find out just how fast they can run and if they can break a speed target set by the aptly named PC Terry Quick, from the Neighbourhood Policing Team.

The runners speeds will be measured and displayed using vehicle speed testing equipment which includes a speed indicator device and speed display sign.

Wycombe Local Policing Area commander Superintendent Ed McLean and officers from the Neighbourhood Policing Team plus representatives from Wycombe District Council and Lemmy Nwabuisi from Red Kite Community Housing will be on hand to meet members of the public and listen to any community concerns.

A Thames Valley Police dangerous dogs expert will be at the pop-up shop between 11am and 12 noon.

Police Officers will be available to security mark items making them less desirable to thieves and more likely to be returned to their owner if stolen.

Visitors will also be able to meet Thames Valley Police horses Luna and Pagan who will be patrolling Kingswood and North Micklefield in the afternoon.

Sgt Matthew Lloyd said: ‘Visitors will have the opportunity to feast on some cake and, for young people, answer the question that should never be asked – can they run faster than their neighbourhood policeman, the appropriately named PC Quick.

Our speed indicator will reveal all.

We would also like to introduce members of the Micklefield community to our new PCSO Gail Gratton.

It is also an opportunity for residents to security mark their property, thereby making it less desirable to thieves or those who sell on stolen goods. They can bring items such as bikes, lawnmowers, power washers, or make arrangements with us to visit their home and security mark items.

We hope to see you there.
