2. "What you told us"

Incidents occur early evening  

"What are we doing about it?"

Additional high visibility foot patrols and on-going community engagement. Repeat offenders have been (and continue to be) identified and joint visits with housing providers have been carried out. Furthermore, attempts are being made to address their behaviour through legislation around alcohol, tenancy and where necessary, prosecution as well as diversionary referrals to partner agencies. If young people are found responsible for causing ASB, they are actively being taken home and spoken to in front of parents, as well as warned of the consequences of further offending.  Use of new ASB Dispersal Powers, which prevent people congregating in areas for up to 48 hours or face arrest.

Anti Social Behaviour - We Asked

What concerns do you have about your neighbourhood?

Anti Social Behaviour - You Said

Members of the public have contacted police reporting an increase in incidents of anti -social behaviour in and around Stanhope Way/Monday Crescent, New Mills estate.

Anti Social Behaviour - We Did

Have dedicated uniform patrols at the optimum times of the day and week. Pro-active use of CCTV to prevent further offences/identify the youths responsible. We are working with our partners to tackle offenders using a graded response system. This includes the use of Acceptable Behaviour Agreements (4 issued this month)in addition to tenancy enforcement action and the recently introduced dispersal orders. For the more problematic individuals we are working towards obtaining community behaviour orders or injunctions to prevent further issues in the locality. As part of Newcastle West Safer Streets Initiative officers continue to visit local off-licences and work with trading standards to prevent the sale of alcohol/legal highs to those underage.

As a result of this the number of reported incidents of anti -social behaviour have reduced significantly but still continue.
