Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
There has been a recent increase in homelessness and begging being reported on the Evington Road business corridor. Local officers plan to liaise with local businesses and residents to establish the extent of the concerns raised. We will work with local partners and the community to decide the best approach in order to deal with concerns raised and to safeguard those who are most vulnerable. The local team will aim to effectively manage these concerns within the next 3 months. We will measure the success of the intervention by completing checks on offence reporting, crime recording and local consultations.

What we are doing:Local officers have continued patrols within the locality of Evington Road. Following business consultations, the suggestion is officers should focus resources on aggressive begging and vulnerability. We will continue to work with residents, local businesses and visitors to the area. The local team have also worked with local partners in an effort to deal more effectively with concerns raised. We are also continuing work with those who are homeless in an effort to divert individuals to accept support being offered. Issued: June 2017
