Later I issued a verbal warning to a youth, who had been smoking cannabis, in Mallory Road. The male had disposed of his cannabis joint prior to police arrival.

6th- A team of SNT police officers made arrest attempts in the evening. One female was arrested on suspicion of drugs offences. I drew the short straw, and kept constant observations on a male, in police custody. The male was suspected of drugs offences. 5 hours and a numb bum later, it was home time.

Interesting news article from the BBC mentioning ‘Safer Neighbourhoods Teams’

13th- I was on ‘constant observations’, of a suspect, for my entire duty.

17th- I returned back to work today and I managed to get straight out on patrol. I noted a tree down behind Pershore Rd. The tree is totally blocking the footpath. I have reported this to the council: ‘The Report’

Whilst patrolling on the footpath behind the Boots Warehouse, I located a very pungent mess on the path. I have reported this to the council: ‘The Report’


18th- I went out early again on bike patrols of Popley. All the hotspot areas were covered, and found to be all in order.

20th- Whilst patrolling Popley Way, I located two suspicious males. After much deliberation, the males were escorted to the police station for strip searches. Due to the circumstances surrounding the males, I suspected they might be in possession of drugs. No drugs were located on the males, and they were released.

Later I took details of an on-going knock and run nuisance report. A group of teenagers are currently running amok in Popley. This old school prank has been taken too far, and any offences will be dealt with robustly!

21st- I patrolled Popley in the late evening. I located a 14 year old male with cannabis and a grinder in Chineham Park Court. The male was taken home and issued with a ‘youth community resolution’.


There was several ASB reports ref youths smashing bottles and trespassing. Patrols will continue to identify those responsible.

I further arrested the male in custody for other offences. The male was charged with 4 making off without payment offences. This relates to fuel.


24th- It was my birthday today. And the sad truth is, I was at work 🙂
