Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
The neighbourhood team have identified a problem of anti-social behaviour through the use of Nitrous Oxide in the area. We have been told this by local residents and businesses, and the use has been apparent by the high level of litter in the area in the form of Nitrous Oxide canisters being left in the street.
Issued: June 2017
What we are doing:The neighbourhood team is tackling this problem by conducting regular patrols in the areas that have been identified as being used for this. This has resulted in these areas no longer being used for the taking of Nitrous Oxide, as confirmed by the community. Positive action has been taken by officers who located a vehicle in a public carpark in the neighbourhood which was full of empty nitrous oxide canisters. Enquiries into this vehicle showed that it was not taxed or insured and the vehicle was seized. A ‘clean up’ was completed in the area of MORRIS ROAD and LONGFELLOW ROAD and hundreds of canisters removed. The team are keen to target those causing anti-social behaviour by the use of Nitrous Oxide, and ask that local residents and businesses tell us if this is a problem – where, when, and details of people and vehicles involved.
