POLICE officers in Oxfordshire have had a ‘busy week’ visiting people who are meant to be self-isolating and trying to stop dirt bikes causing havoc in the woods.

Taking to social media, the Henley Neighbourhood Policing Team wrote: “We continue to be out and about, so if you see us feel free to wave us down for a chat.”  

Here’s what they got up to:

  • Officers worked with TVP Roads Policing and regularly patrolled woodland where there had been multiple reports of dirt bikes being ridden. Police say there has now been ‘significantly less reports’ this weekend.
  • The team responded to people breaking the lockdown rules and went to check that those who are meant to be self-isolating were sticking to the law.
  • Neighbourhood officers handed out ‘Anti-social behaviour contracts’ (ABC) and ‘Community Resolutions’ are responding to incidents in Henley.
  • One officer stopped a man on the street who had cannabis.
  • Several vulnerable people were ‘safeguarded’.
  • One person was given fraud advice after their bank account was targeted by a scammer.
