Police 'pleased so far' with Regatta operation
Published 05/07/14



OFFICERS are currently working hard today (Saturday) to police what is expected to be the busiest day of the Henley Royal Regatta.

T/Supt Rory Freeman, Silver Commander for the operation, said: I am very pleased with how the policing operation has gone so far and the crime and number of arrests are comparable with last year.

"Today is usually the busiest day for the regatta and we will continue to do all that we can to ensure that the day is safe and enjoyable for everyone.

"Yesterday was the third day of the Regatta and Henley was full of enthusiastic spectators, who enjoyed a good day of competitive rowing."

Five incidents have taken place since yesterday.

• A man, aged 25, from Caversham, was arrested for breaching his Section 27 order, and was given a police caution

• A man was assaulted in the Henley Enclosure between 10.30 and 10.45pm and Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses as the offender was not found

• Robert Hardman, 52, of Shipston Road, Stratford-Upon-Avon, was arrested at 10.36pm on Bell Street and charged for drink driving offences. He has been bailed and will appear at Oxford Magistrates Court on July 21

• A 17-year-old boy from Bourne End was found smoking cannabis on the Thames tow path at 7pm. He was issued with a cannabis warning.

• Two men aged 20 and 22 from Pangbourne and Broadstone, were found fighting at 11.30pm on Hart Street and issued with penalty notices for disorder.

"We issued 30 Section 27 orders on day three of the Regatta. We will continue to robustly police the event and will issue Section 27 orders if we think it's necessary.

"I would again like to remind those attending the event today that they are expected to drink responsibly. There will be officers on patrol and there is a Designated Public Place Order in place covering the regatta area and large parts of Henley town. The designated areas will be clearly signed.

"Within the designated area a police officer can ask you to hand over any alcohol you have with you. Failure to do so could result in arrest.

"We will continue to work closely with the licensees and our partners to make sure that the people who are looking to cause trouble are identified and dealt with at the earliest opportunity to deter crime from taking place.

"The neighbourhood policing team is continuing to work hard, patrolling the area to prevent and deter any incidents of trouble and minimise any disruption to local residents which might be caused by the event."
