Update for January

Your police team is based in Great Missenden Library. The team consists of Inspector Richard Vine, Sergeant Nicola Upton, PC Mike Painter, PC Vikki Kerr, PC Janine Daniel, PCSO Nicola Hinkley and PCSO Chris Ging.

Neighbourhood Priority Profiles (NPP)

These are the priorities that the Neighbourhood Action Group (NAG) will be focusing on.  These priorities are set by you and the NAG work together with local community, organisations and businesses to deal with these issues. Please see report for each profile.  The next NAG meeting is to be confirmed.  Unfortunately, this is not a public meeting however if there are items you wish to be raised, please contact the neighbourhood policing team.


The MVAS project (Moveable Vehicle Activation Sign) is now up and running in the area; we have two signs which will be moved around different locations within the parish.  The Safer Roads Partnership has also seen the camera van conducting speed enforcement within the area.

Local residents are encouraged to become volunteers to undertake “Community Speed Watch”. If you would like to volunteer to help out, or would like to know more about what we do, please contact any of the officers at Great Missenden police office.


During December there were two burglaries to properties, one in Little Kingshill and the other in Prestwood where jewellery, cash and electrical items were stolen.

There was one non dwelling burglary, which occurred in Great Missenden at business premises where a store room was targeted; no entry was gained.

With the dark nights upon us your home can become a target for burglars who prefer unoccupied homes / buildings. Please ensure you do not leave garden tools to hand as this can aid burglars in gaining entry to properties. Ensure house alarms, if fitted, are activated doors and windows are shut and use timer switches on your lights. Inform neighbours if you are going away so they may keep an eye on your property. With wireless technology burglar alarms / CCTV are now more affordable and easier to install and can become a real deterrent to protecting your property from unwanted attention.

Theft from Vehicle

During December there were seven thefts from motor vehicle which occurred in the following areas; one in Holmer Green, one in Great Missenden, one in Hyde Heath, one in Great Kingshill and three in Prestwood where vehicles  were entered resulting in tools, laptops, mobile phones and bags being stolen.

Vehicle owners are strongly urged not to leave valuables, bags, coats, Sat Navs, phone or cash on display as this will only invite thieves to break into your vehicles. Tradesmen are advised to not leave tools in vans overnight.

We advise residents to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity immediately at the time it is happening.

Residents are encouraged to provide any information to assist investigations by contacting the police on the non emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or (opens new window)
