Actions to date

Patrolling

We will continue to be visible within the community, maximising the number of patrols carried out, and undertaking specific operations and diversionary initiatives.

Partners

We will take part in all aspects of the community, through involvement in Community Councils, CAPP meetings, Neighbourhood Watches, schools, youth groups, interest groups and farming forums to ensure a coordinated approach to addressing those issues within the community.

Campaign Against Violence

We will use additional officers on selected Friday nights to target violent offenders and assist regular officers with pub dispersals.

Local Violent Offender Multi Agency Tasking and Co-ordinating (MATAC)

We will discuss prominent offenders with partners and will take action to prevent future offending and enforce court restrictions.

Crime Prevention

We will continue to give crime prevention advice, on request from occupiers of residential properties or owners of business premises.

Listening

We will listen to our community at our surgeries and respond with advice and action.

Schools

We will continue to work closely with local schools in an effort to talk to young people about antisocial behaviour, domestic violence and road safety issues through initiatives like 2morow’s driver (Road Safety awareness for young drivers).

Searches

We will target violent individuals, by using stop-search powers to identify those carrying alcohol, weapons and drugs.

ASBOs

We will support the use of ASBOs and share information to help with the early eviction of problem tenants.

Investigation

We will use specialised officers to combat and investigate thefts by housebreaking, domestic violence and sexual offences and target these crimes with specific initiatives.
