Housing Services Manager awarded Commander's Commendation

Andrew McDonald, Housing Services Manager, has been awarded a prestigious Commander’s Commendation from Thames Valley Police.

The commendation was presented at the Thames Valley Police training centre at Sulhamstead in the summer. 

Andrew was commended for his collaborative partnership approach and tireless commitment over an extended period in contributing to the dismantling of a dangerous organised crime group, and the safeguarding of the most vulnerable members of the community. 

Linda Wells, Housing and Community Services Director, said: “We are immensely proud of Andrew and his team for the work they do in partnership with the police to tackle anti-social behaviour and reduce crime. We seek to safeguard our vulnerable residents wherever we can and will not tolerate their exploitation.

This commendation is very pleasing as it is external recognition of our staff who go above and beyond to do extraordinary things to keep our estates safe.”

Tackling anti-social behaviour

We don’t tolerate any type of harassment or anti-social behaviour (ASB).

We work closely with the police to take a strong stance against drug use, associated anti-social behaviour, and to protect vulnerable people. In the last 18 months we have successfully:

  • Obtained 15 partial closures (when the individual is at risk and  visitors are banned from the property) 
  • Obtained five full closure orders (when the individuals themselves are banned from the property)
  • Recovered possession of nine properties where serious ASB was committed
