Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
The new academic year is starting soon! We have many events lined up to support freshers and returning students. We look at previous year reports to predict where and when issues may occur. We have spikes in burglary dwellings when the students return, and in response to this we run an operation to put officers in the areas affected and also to ensure students going out are respectful to the community they now live in.
Issued: September 2017
What we are doing:We like to offer a big welcome to the Freshers for this academic term and a big welcome back to the returners. After months of preparation in conjunction with the council and University we have started our annual operation to combat burglaries to student properties and to reduce reports of anti-social behaviour. I am please to report a low number of burglaries so far and we have seen really good early signs for ASB complaints (Transient noise etc) with a 54% reduction in total complaints compared to the same time last year. The team have been working tirelessly to get the key crime reduction messages out to students, conducting many hall talks and knocking hundreds of doors giving some crime reduction freebies away. However, please remain vigilant as the nights draw in. We will continue to patrol and keep you safe.
