Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
Having analysed our crime over the past three years there have been a spike of vehicle crimes occurring in and around the Glen Parva area. The reports of theft from vehicles, mostly centred around the Navigation Road, Newbridge Road and Knightsbridge Road area. Most of these vehicles are locked and suspect(s) have used unknown means to gain entry into the vehicles. On a few occasions windows had been smashed to gain entry.
Issued: September 2018
What we are doing:In September/October 2018 Operation Yardage was instigated which consisted of officers on dedicated patrols with support, where possible, from Response Officers in identified areas of the beat where vehicle crime is occurring. Various tactics are being used to attempt to reduce this type of crime in the location including Hi-viz patrols, covert plain cloth patrols. Using intelligence and information to visit past offenders for vehicle crime and offering support from other agencies to divert them from re-offending (if accepted). Social Media is also being used to highlight incidents and to raise awareness to lock vehicles and remove valuables. Although several criminals have been arrested, others continue to commit crime focused on vehicles. November Update: Patrols continue to occur in the locations with support from HQ operations support departments. A reduction in vehicle crime has occurred but is continuing. Patrols are continuing and officers are focused on trying to locate and arrest a wanted known vehicle criminal who is believed committing the vehicle crime but Police have been unable to locate a base where he may be staying. Once we identify that address, officers will arrest him. Issued: November 2018
