Neighbourhood priorities

We asked, You Said, We did


We asked… 
What concerns do you have about your neighbourhood?

You said… 
Arsons and youth disorder in King George playing fields, Pennywell

We did… 

Extra patrols were put in the area.  Your local Neighbourhood Police Team worked alongside Gentoo, Sunderland Council's Anti-Social Behaviour Team and the Fire Brigade to target persistent offenders.

A number of different tactics were used to identify offenders and dispersal orders were put in place.  The issues were also raised in the media and received front page coverage.
