What concerns do you have about your neighbourhood?

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.

We did and continue to

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.
