We asked, You Said, We did

We asked - 9th October 2018

We asked what are your concerns in your community ?

You said - 9th October 2018

You said - Anti social behaviour and youths congregating at the entrance to the school and steps above B & M.

We did - 9th October 2018

The youths were identified and Community Protection warnings given to 4 ring leaders.  Northumberland County Council placed a mobile CCTV camera in the area.  We have also worked with the landlords of Marks & Spencer's car park to improve lighting and gates to the steps at the west of the car park.  This approach had a positive effect and the situation settled down for a number of months.  As a result the camera was taken out by NCC and redeployed.  Some residents nearby reported further ASB calls during July and September.  As a result letters were sent on the 25th September to parents of the youths found congregating on school grounds.  The letters advise parents about consequences of ASB and Trespass.  Due to recent concerns NCC have reinstated the camera.

We asked what are your concerns in Haltwhistle ?

You said - 9th October 2018

You said there are concerns about speeding vehicles in Haltwhistle

We did - 9th October 2018

Traffic Officers from Operation Dragoon have been to the area and spoken with the drivers of the vehicles.  Local Neighbourhood Beat Manager, PC 1310 Roberts has continued with high visability patrols and updated those concerned.  The result of activity include 1 person receiving a verbal warning.  If issues continue, potentially utilise powers under S59 Police Reform Act 2002 regarding anti-social driving which ultimately gives the power to seize the vehicle on the second occasion.
