Neighbourhood Priorities

The following Neighbourhood priorities relate to your area:

October 2018 : Anti Social Behaviour in the Vicinity of the Forest Hall Shops

"You told us."

There have been reports of youths gathering and causing anti-social behaviour and criminal damage in the shopping area, surrounding streets and parks..

 

"What we are doing about it?"

All Neighbourhood Beat Managers, Community Support Officers (CSOs) are aware of these reports.  The Neighbourhood team patrol this area on a daily basis when on duty.

Additional support from uniformed 24/7 response officers has been requested to support the Neighbourhood Team in tackling this issue, to prevent offences, provide reassurance and offer crime prevention advice to residents.

Officers patrolling the area may be equipped with body worn cameras to record evidence.  Officers in plain clothes have carried out foot and bike patrols to identify those involved and deal with them appropriately. 

We have conducted joint patrols with Officers from North Tyneside Councils Community Protection Team.  We share information and work closely with their new Environmental Enforcement Officers who patrol in a van and on foot to tackle Anti-social behaviour.  The wardens have access to a CCTV van to gather evidence to assist.

We are working with partner agencies to offer young people support and diversionary opportunities.

 

"Keeping you informed."

As a result of our patrols and information from the Community we were made aware that a Local Store may have been selling alcohol to underage Youths.  We ran a “Test Purchase” Operation with an underage child and recorded a sale of alcohol.  Due to Neighbourhood officers patrols a further sale of alcohol to a child was discovered and investigated. 

The Licensee of the store was Summonsed to Magistrates Court for Selling Alcohol to Juvenile’s where he was fined.  Killingworth NPT also took the Licensee to a Licencing Review hearing. At the conclusion of the hearing the licensee was removed from his role and although he still owns the store is now barred from being in the store during the time when it is open to sell alcohol.  The stores licence to sell alcohol was suspended for 3 months.  CCTV and training requirements were also made much more stringent.  We continue to monitor the activity around this premises to ensure compliance with their licence.   

Community Support Officers (CSOs) are regularly in the area updating residents and providing reassurance to the community.  There are regular drop in sessions held at Granville Lodge to discuss issues with the community.  We will investigate any information passed to us in relation to ASB and the sale of alcohol to children. 

Further updates can be found by following the Neighbourhood Team on Twitter with the handle @NPNKillingworth.

Neighbourhood Officers have recently worked with North Tyneside Council and arranged to have broken locks on Communal Doors fixed to prevent Anti-Social behaviour in communal areas.

 

"Keeping you informed.”

We have spoken with the local community and listened to their concerns. 

We recently seized a Quad bike that was being driven on roads, paths and grassland without the appropriate permissions or equipment.  We have also handed out a number of warnings under section 59 Police Reform act 2002 regarding the use of off road motorbikes.  This means that the next time the person given the warning or the vehicle they were warned about is used in a manner likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to others it will be seized and possibly destroyed.  We encourage members of the public to ring in about these matters.
