Salisbury Community Policing Team Report

Prevention is better than cure

Covid continues to dominate the Policing picture with patrols and enforcement continuing. We now have a Road-Map to exit Lockdown, thanks to an impressive delivery of vaccination by our partners, but wanted to reinforce the message that we currently remain in Lockdown and all the dates provided by the Government are preceded with ‘AND NOT BEFORE’. As much as we welcome projected dates, we all must take responsibility to not book fixed dates for events or gatherings until we are clear that they can be fulfilled. It is vital that we continue to follow the advice from the Government, in line with the scientific advice they are receiving, in order to keep our communities safe and not extend or return to future Lockdown periods.

Community Messaging. This is an underused tool but I am encouraging greater use by my staff. One particular function is the ability to map private CCTV systems. The increase in numbers of security systems linked to doorbells is an opportunity that can support investigations. A database that provides the ability to email information that an offence has occurred in an area and we are looking for a person of a certain description, could be the vital link to locate an image nearby on such a camera. Please log in/sign up to Community Messenger and tick the CCTV box to help.

Are you fed-up with doing the same old walks?

Walking in Wiltshire is the website for you!


With hundreds of walks to download and print, free, it also has books of walks, contact details for all the walking groups in the county, and much more. Whether you want to walk on your own or with a group all the information is there in one place.


John Harris said ‘There is so much walking information on the web but it is difficult to find. Walking in Wiltshire (part of the Walking in England suite of websites (  – one for each county in England) has brought it together in one place so whether you are walking from home, or away on holiday, you will be able to find a walk suitable for you’.


With walks from half a mile to twelve miles plus long, and a note of suitability for pushchairs and wheelchairs, everyone can find a walk to enjoy.


So home or away, check out the websites and get walking!

Firsdown Litter Collection

“A litter pick was undertaken today from Firs Close to the Dunstable crossroads, resulting in 2 bags of rubbish. Firsdown Parish Council appreciates that some of this rubbish may have come from traffic passing through our parish, but we ask for residents assistance in keeping our parish litter-free.”
