Bourton-on-the-Water Parish Council


Neighbourhood Policing Team

Members of the local Police team attend the monthly Parish Council meetings as and when available, to give residents an opportunity to submit questions or comments about local policing.  The team are also available within the Police Point in the Community Centre on various days throughout each month - these days are advertised on the Police notice-board inside the Community Centre entrance.  Alternatively, you may view the attachments below or call the Parish Council and we will advise you of these dates.

PSCO Charlie Symes

PCSO Charlie Symes is designated the named PCSO for Bourton on the Water. Residents can contact PCSO Symes and other members of the local team through this web-site link using the “Contact your Team” link, or by calling 101 or 01452 907200.

The Reception at Stow on the Wold is normally open to the public as follows:

Monday               Open 08:30-17:00            Closed for lunch (12:30-13:00)

Tuesday              Open 08:30-17:00            Closed for lunch (12:30-13:00)

Wednesday        Open 08:30-17:00             Closed for lunch (12:30-13:00)

It is not open Thursday to Sunday inclusive.

Please note that occasionally the Reception has to close for operational reasons; consequently, if people have to travel any distance, it is best to phone first to ensure it is open. The direct telephone line for the Stow on the Wold Police Station Reception has changed to 01452 907273.

It should be noted that regardless of whether the Reception is open, there are officers working 24/7 out of Stow on the Wold Police Station; however, as they are invariably out at jobs, or on patrol, they are unlikely to be able to respond to members of the public knocking on the door.

In an emergency, regardless of the time of day, you must dial 999 and ask for the emergency service you require: Police, Fire or Ambulance. 

For all other non-emergency calls to the Police and general enquiries, please dial 101 (calls will be charged at local rate from a landline). Further help and advice can be found from our web site: www.gloucestershire.police.uk

Residents are asked to be aware that Police may be called away to attend  priority events and incidents, and if this is the case residents are asked for their understanding.  However, you may leave your contact details with Council officers who will forward these to the team so they may contact you subsequently.  It's hoped that residents will make use of the regular availability of officers to come in and discuss issues relating to local policing.  You know what they say - use it or lose it!
