It has been brought to our attention that vehicle obstruction in residential areas across the Butser Sector is a real concern to the local community.
Parking blocking a private driveway or on the pavement is the offence of 'unnecessary obstruction' and worst case scenario is that a vehicle could be towed away at the expense of the owner.
Please remember when parking you must leave room for vehicles to pass, local residents are concerned that emergency vehicles such as fire and ambulance would struggle to get past on a number of these roads across the sector during the busy periods and that pedestrians have to walk on the road due to blocked pavements.
I understand it can be difficult to find spaces because of the number of vehicles that are on the roads. Please just take a few seconds to look where you have parked, making sure you are not committing any offences. This is also for the safety of your children.
Hampshire Constabulary Media Release
A victim of online dating fraud is sharing her experiences ahead of this year’s Valentine’s Day to help others avoid being affected by this type of crime.
The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, lost £20,000 and laundered more than £200,000 after three years of contact with a man whom she met and communicated with solely online.
She is speaking out with the purpose of protecting people in similar situations where they may become vulnerable to convincing detailed deceptions.
Woman’s message of support to people dating online
Hampshire Constabulary has recorded an interview with the woman to give a candid and emotive account of the fraud and its implications for her life.
The interview forms part of a Hampshire Constabulary film reconstructing the events of an elaborate manipulation based on a false promise of marriage and a new life together.
Speaking during the film, the woman who is known as Jenny to protect her identity, said: “What I really want to get across to anybody or everybody is the minute anyone asks you to send them money, if you’ve never met them or received money from them, just don’t do it - don’t do it, contact the police or talk to somebody else about it.
“I never thought that I was naïve; I didn’t think anything like this could ever happen to me – it could happen to anybody.”
Please find below hyperlinks to Hampshire Constabulary's YouTube channel where three short teaser films advertising the main film are published:
1) Teaser one: Teaser one
2) Teaser two: Teaser two
3) Teaser three: Teaser three
The full film is due to be published by Hampshire Constabulary tomorrow morning (Tuesday, February 14) for Valentine's Day.
We face the challenging task of communicating with our NW Coordinators and continuing to recruit new ones.
I have sent an email to the address list that was on the site and whereas I would have liked more replies I am encouraged by those received.
Our 'website ' is based on a Content Management System (CMS) which I am not familiar with and which is quite different to the other websites that I maintain. I've bought the User Manual and I am learning as fast as possible. This particular page replaces one that was quite complicated - Now that I have changed it to this one, which is very easy to use, I hope to encourage more regular contact with you.

Payment diversion alert
Fraudsters are emailing members of the public who are expecting to make a payment for property repairs. The fraudsters will purport to be a tradesman who has recently completed work at the property and use a similar email address to that of the genuine tradesman. They will ask for funds to be transferred via bank transfer. Once payment is made the victims of the scam soon realise they have been deceived when the genuine tradesman requests payment for their services.
Always check the email address is exactly the same as previous correspondence with the genuine contact.
For any request of payment via email verify the validity of the request with a phone call to the person who carried out the work.
Check the email for spelling and grammar as these signs can indicate that the email is not genuine.
Payments via bank transfer offer no financial protection; consider using alternative methods such as a credit card or PayPal which offer protection and an avenue for recompense.
If you believe that you have been a victim of fraud you can report it online http://www.actionfraud.police.uk/report_fraud or by telephone 0300 123 2040.
We work with your community to find out what matters most where you live. We will work with you and partner agencies to agree the main priorities for the area and how we will work together to tackle them.

To help tackle the issue of theft particularly in relation to theft of pedal bikes PCSO MORNING has gone to local bike shops in PETERSFIELD and given out immobilise leaflets. By logging on to www.immobilise.com you can register valuables such as bikes then if they are ever reported lost/stolen to the police we are more likely to recover this for the owner.
