Eastleigh Neighbourhood Policing Team
Fair Oak & Horton Heath Quarterly Report
This report covers the three month period of October, November and December 2018 for the Parish of
Fair Oak & Horton Heath.
This is the 3rd quarterly report I have produced for the parish. This is a process which is generic district wide, so don’t be surprised if the format changes over time.
My aim as the Sergeant responsible for your Neighbourhood Policing Team is to provide you with an overview of the current crime figures, highlight any trends or patterns, seek feedback and your views in relation to the report, and then update our community priorities based on all of the information we already have (seasonal trends / previous priorities / district problems / county wide problems etc).
Team Updates:
The team currently consists of: PC Laura King, PC Rob Reason, PCSO Helen Rees and PCSO Oonagh Knights. We all work from Eastleigh Police Station however it is planned that we will be moving to new premises off Shakespeare Road in March.
On 4th February, we will be realigning our shifts so that all of Eastleigh East team will be working together. Also at the time, PC Rob Reason and PCSO Oonagh Knights will be moving to Eastleigh Central Team. We will be gaining PC Aaron Wickes and PCSO Callum Stephens.
Crime Summary:
I am pleased to be able to confirm that total crime recorded within the parish remains low, however there has been a slight increase compared to the same period last year. The following table gives you an overall comparator for October, November and December for 2017 and 2018:
Oct / Nov / Dec 2017 2018
1 Violence Against the Person 23 29
2 Sexual Offences 5 5
3 Robbery 6 0
4 Theft Offences 31 34
5 Criminal Damage and Arson Offences 14 18
6 Drug Offences 1 7
7 Possession of Weapons Offences 0 0
8 Public Order Offences 5 5
9 Miscellaneous Crimes Against Society 2 2
Totals: 87 100
Of note in these figures is that there is an increase in violence against the person, theft, criminal damage and drug offences. The increases are small and do not form any kind of pattern or series. Regarding drugs offences, we only record what we find so this increase is positive in that we have found more people in possession and prosecuted them.
If any more detail is required then please let me know, however the main headline is there is no discernible pattern of crime or ongoing series of crimes that are specific to Fair Oak & Horton Heath at this time.
Anti-Social Behaviour Summary:
ASB is a little bit trickier to drill down into the detail of because of the varying ways it can be recorded on our system. I have included below a table which has the previous 12 months from the day of the report compared to the same period in the previous year:
Neighbourhood Beat R12 months Previous R12 months Difference
Eastleigh East Fair Oak & Horton Heath 83 145 -62
  Sum: 83 145 -62
As you can see from the table there has been a reduction of 43% on the previous 12 months.
I have also reviewed the raw data for the last 3 months, and I am very pleased to report there are very few repeat locations of concern. Generally if an area has more than 3 calls in a 90 day period we will consider whether there needs to be further work. At the moment there are no locations that meet this threshold.
Policing Priorities:
My team are asked to consider 3 separate levels of priorities which are set at force, district and community level:
  • The force priorities are overarching themes which all teams throughout the force are expected to contribute to (Domestic violence and Child Sexual Exploitation for example).
  • Our district priorities are things that are specifically impacting on Eastleigh as a district and are set month by month at our ‘tactical planning meetings’, and are generally crime series or trends. 
  • Our community priorities are led by the community and are based on feedback from yourselves, any interactions with the community and up to date crime data.
Our force priorities include child exploitation and domestic violence amongst others, and the PCSOs in particular take the lead role in safeguarding vulnerable people in the parish. As such they are often focused on dealing with victims of Domestic Violence or vulnerable children in the parish alongside focusing on the community set priorities. The PCs on the team focus on the domestic violence perpetrators and others committing crime in the area.
Our current community priorities are:
  • Speeding
  • ASB
We now need to consider what our priorities are going forward and I welcome any feedback from you. We do consider previous years, so we are currently refreshing our work around previous crime patterns and ASB issues.
Please can you let me know if there is anything else that in your experience you feel we should be focusing on.
Our suggested community priorities are at least:
  • ASB
  • Speeding
Please feedback anything else you feel should be included.
I hope you find this report useful. It is a new process for me so please let me know if you feel there is anything else that should be included or needs covering.
Best regards
