Neighbourhood Priorities

The following Neighbourhood priorities relate to your area:

September 2016 : - Anti Social Behaviour - Off Road Bikes - Brick Garth / Elemore Lane, Easington Lane

“What you told us”

We continue to get reports of people riding off road bikes on grassed areas and footpaths in this area although the numbers of reports are decreasing.

“What are we doing about it ?”

The police are working with the local community to apprehend those individuals who are committing this type of anti-social behaviour.

We have seized a number of bikes which have been crushed and will continue to do this where they are being used in an anti-social manner.

Through the local multi agency partnership group we have funded the installation of a post suitable to carry a 3G camera which has been erected on Dorset Street to cover the most affected areas of Brick Garth and Elemore Lane and a 3G camera is currently deployed at this location.

“Keeping you informed”

This will remain a police priority for the police in the Coalfields area.

The Neighbourhood Policing Team will keep the community updated through Partners and Communities Together (PACT) meetings. For more information on the meetings please check this web site for meetings in your area.

If residents have information regarding this type of offence they can ring us on the 101 number or contact us via social media sites. They can also call Crimestoppers.

September 2016: Anti-Social Behaviour Market Street Hetton

"What you told us"

The number of reports of groups of youths gathering and causing anti-social behaviour in the areas of Market Street, Hetton continues to decrease.

"What are we doing about it ?"

The Local Neighbourhood Policing Team continues to target this area with extra patrols to disperse any groups of youths hanging about particularly in the evenings.

The officers are using new dispersal powers and community protection notices in the area and we continue to work with Gentoo and the Local Authority Anti-Social Behaviour officers to identify persistent offenders and carry out home visits.

The Local Multi Agency Group, the Local Authority and Local Councillors have provided funding and a post has been installed to carry a 3G camera which remains deployed in the area.

The police are working with the Local Authority Anti-Social Behaviour officer to deal with residents in the street that attract and encourage the young people to commit this type of offence. This work is on- going.

"Keeping you informed"

We will continue to work with our partner agencies to make our communities even safer and ensure those who are causing the most harm and disruption are dealt with.

The Neighbourhood Policing Team will keep the community updated through Partners and Communities Together (PACT) meetings. For more information on the meetings please check this web site for meetings in your area.
