Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
Your are reporting concerns about the anti-social use of motor vehicles in an around St Oswalds Road, Aikman Avenue, Glengarry Way and surrounding streets.
Issued: November 2018
What we are doing:The beat team are targeting enforcement activity to increase the seizure of vehicles being driven illegally either with no licence, no insurance, driving of stolen vehicles or those driven in an anti-social manner.
Knife Crime Reduction Initiative. The New Parks beat and specifically Aikman Avenue and surrounding streets has suffered a higher than average number of knife related offences.
We have also identified some 'habitual knife carriers' in the area who we will attempt to divert away from offending but if they don't we will target for enforcement activity.
Issued: September 2018
What we are doing:Local PCs and PCSO are currently allocated to specific patrols to target knife crime. This will involve regular high visibility patrols in the area, engagement with local people to identify information and targeting of those carrying knives. A patch walk was held and attended by the Police and Crime Commissioner Lord Willy Bach. A number of actions came out of the meeting to improve the environment in and around Aikman Avenue. Your local policing team are making contact with local schools and community groups to identify those and divert those likely to carry knives. Issued: July 2018
