Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
Staff members at Tesco have raised concerns of youths congregating outside the doorway causing obstructions to shop users.
Tesco suspect that some youths are causing distractions for others to shoplift and have banned some local youths from being on the premises due to rowdy and inconsiderate behaviour within the shop.
How has the Priority been determined?: Beat Team and Impact workers have consulted with Tesco and have a list of the few youths that have been banned from using Tesco. Staff feel that these banned youths are the few that are well known therefore easy to identify however they can not identify all those that they suspect of shoplifting and causing ASB.
Issued: November 2017
What we are doing:We will patrol in the local area to a) prevent, b) educate c) enforce against those that are causing the issues. The identified young people who are causing the issues will be dealt with via the incremental process and if necessary and offences have been committed, positive action will be taken. We will work with Tesco, the Co-Op and other local shops to ensure that a positive use of Shop-watch (unofficial) is encouraged to help the shop keepers to feel supported and help support themselves. UPDATE: Officers have continued to patrol in the location and have seen a reduction in ASB incidents and general incidents of youth related matters and shoplifting in the area. User of the area have been engaged and have reported that they feel that there is less 'trouble' in the location Issued: December 2017
