Increased patrols on foot in the areas and challenging of youths seems to have reduced the number of fires. However the occasional reports of anti social behaviour caused by youths over 6 in a group, being loud, dropping litter and intimidating to other users hasn’t.
The reports have more recently have been shoplifting on Houndstone retail park and the shops at The Forum. Anti social behaviour Oak Tree Park, King Arthur park where stop and search powers will be used to educate and or prosecute as appropriate.
Please report these even if after the event (better at the time) as then we will be able to form a better picture as to where and when to direct patrols. Intelligence as to those responsible encouraged.
