There have been reports of anti-social behaviour and criminal damage in this area and surrounding streets.

"What we are doing about it"

All Neighbourhood Beat Managers, Community Support Officers (CSOs) and 24/7 patrols have been made aware of these reports.

Additional uniformed police patrols are taking place in the area to prevent offences, provide reassurance and offer crime prevention advice to residents. Officers may be equipped with body worn cameras to record evidence.

Officers in plain clothes will carry out foot and bike patrols to arrest suspects and detect any offences.

On a number of occasions we have used Dispersal order authorities under sec 35 Anti-social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014 to help combat anti-social behaviour.  A number of dispersal notices  have been issued to different individuals banning them from the area for a period of time up to 48 hours.

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

"Keeping you informed"

We have spoken with the local community and listened to their concerns.  We are updating the community on a regular basis.

Community Support Officers (CSOs) are regularly in the area updating residents and providing reassurance to the community.

"Keeping you informed"
