Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
Houghton on the Hill has suffered two robbery offences within 24 hours within the centre of the village. These offences occured in the public view and within a busy part of the village on the Main Street and Weir Road junction.
The type of offence has caused residents and service users of the village to be concerned given the violent nature of the offences and the fact that they have both been targetted at female drivers of parked vehilces at specific times in the evening.
The community are concerned by the type of offences - robbery, the violent nature of them and the fact they feel in fear of violence and being a victim
Issued: January 2019
What we are doing:We are addressing this issue by placing marked vehicles and uniformed officers in the village at busy times and the specific times that the offences occured. We are looking to support the investigation process following two suspects being arrested. We are also working with all partner agencies available to us to ensure we cover all aspects to prevent further offences of this kind, reassure the public and manage out the issues. Contact has also been made with the community leaders of the village to look to allow a public event where the residents and general public can speak to officers about their concerns Issued: January 2019
