Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
Knife Related Crime and Incidents - There have been a number of incidents involving knives or weapons within The Westcotes Ward over the past few months which causes a perceived lack of community safety and fear.
Issued: July 2018
What we are doing:The problem of knife related crime and incidents is recognised Nationally as an issue and is a Priority for the Force and your local neighbourhood Team to tackle those persons who persistently carry weapons. Identified Force areas including Western Rd / Wilberforce Rd will see periodic increased patrols especially on Saturday evenings to reassure the local public and deter offenders from the area. On-going education with schools, youth groups and identified individuals will continue to highlight the risks associated with carrying knives as well as the National campaign #livesnotknives.
