A response to the recent increase in criminal activity

Published: 11 October 2022

As your elected councillors, we can assure you all that the best interest of our town is paramount as we want our town to be crime free. If we can achieve that and make it a place of tranquillity where all in the community are safe day and night, we can all sleep better.

The recent spike in incidents has been a significant concern for us, and we as councillors are taking steps to stop the escalation of such incidents.

At the request of your elected councillors, the Police and Crime Commissioner for our area and the Police Officer in charge of policing our town, gave a presentation at our 27th of September Town Council meeting with around a dozen of our residents also in attendance.

We are working with our local Police team to make our town a peaceful and crime free area to live in again. We cannot achieve that without your total support, so please start by taking the first step. 

We are in it together and united we can make Princes Risborough a better place by working together.

1. Call and report all crime incidents to the Police as soon as they happen.
    Phone: 999 for Life-threatening emergencies or 101 for Non-emergencies

2. You can take pictures if it is ok and safe for you to do so.

3. Be willing to give evidence when needed, without evidence the police have no ground to work on.
