Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
Users of Johns Court, Blaby are reporting groups of youths are causing anti-social behaviour by riding cycles in and around the precinct and adjacent car park, intimidating members of the local community.
Issued: November 2017
What we are doing:The precinct and car park is privately owned with the public having implied access to use the facilities. Due to this the Police have no power to issue tickets (even if that option was still available to the Police) to people riding on the 'pavement' as it is NOT part of the highway. Blaby District Council (BDC) could initiate a Community Protection Notice for the area and issue Fixed Penalty Notices (FPN) to those who are behaving in the described manner but FPN's can only be issued to a person over the age of 16 and BDC have no one trained and authorised to issue such tickets. Most of the young people behaving in an ASB way are under 16 and therefore a FPT could not be issued. We will work with BDC to patrol in the local area and endeavour to identify the young people using the area in an ASB way and riding their bikes in and around the location. We will then use the incremental approach to reduce their ASB in partnership with their families. UPDATE: The beat team have continued to patrol and engage with youths seen with bikes in the precinct. We have spoken to and advised youths about riding bikes at the location, no formal action has been taken. We have worked with Blaby District Council who have visited the shops and have taken opportunities to engage with residents including the Blaby Light switch on. Issued: December 2017
