The following Neighbourhood priorities relate to your area:
Priorities - October 2018
Rural crime – Poaching and cars driving onto private land causing damage and intimidation.
OP Checkpoint is a meeting between game keepers/famers and partners who share intelligence and go out together with direct contact. The last meeting was 6th September 2018 and another will be planned for later in the year. Anyone is welcome to get involved via their local neighbourhood team.
Rural farmers/game keepers have a direct phone line to their neighbourhood officers to pass intelligence or incidents that do not need a 101 response but ensure information sharing and support.
Farm watch passes regular information on suspicious vehicles and incidents.
ASB/Drugs – Increase in disorder around housing estates and Town Centre which was linked to drug taking and known local drug dealers
Key areas such as Prior Park and Town Centre discussed with partners and we are working together to improve lighting and issue tenants
ASB letters sent out to youths causing issues. This is also supported by Early Help Teams within social services
Drug warrants executed in area over Summer and these will continue as information is obtained. We have worked with local councillors to improve the quality of information from residents and to reassure that all information is confidential
We targeted patrol plans in Parks and Town Centre shops and put on social media where we were
Foot patrol in Town Centres and present at community events
Involvement in local charities such as Dementia Friends assisting in fund raising over the summer
