Neighbourhood Priorities

The following Neighbourhood priorities relate to your area:

1.March 2017: Anti-social behaviour in the vicinity of the Killingworth Centre.

"What you told us"

There have been reports of anti-social behaviour and criminal damage in this area and surrounding streets.

"What we are doing about it"

All Neighbourhood Beat Managers, Community Support Officers (CSOs) and 24/7 patrols have been made aware of these reports.

Additional uniformed police patrols are taking place in the area to prevent offences, provide reassurance and offer crime prevention advice to residents. Officers may be equipped with body worn cameras to record evidence.

Officers in plain clothes will carry out foot and bike patrols to arrest suspects and detect any offences.

On a number of occasions we have used Dispersal order authorities under sec 35 Anti-social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014 to help combat anti-social behaviour.  A number of dispersal notices  have been issued to different individuals banning them from the area for a period of time up to 48 hours.

We are working with partner agencies to offer young people support and diversionary opportunities.

"Keeping you informed"

We have spoken with the local community and listened to their concerns.  We are updating the community on a regular basis.

Community Support Officers (CSOs) are regularly in the area updating residents and providing reassurance to the community.

 

2. March 2017: Youth anti-social behaviour in the area of the underpass and park at East Bailey near Green Lane, Killingworth

"What you told us"

There have been increased reports of young person's gathering in the underpass and hanging round the park. The youths are acting in an anti-social manner.

"What we are doing about it"

To offer reassurance to the local community, Officers from the Neighbourhood team are providing regular highly visible uniformed foot patrols in the area to reduce incidents. Officers may be equipped with body worn cameras to record evidence.

We are working closely with our partners and the Local Authority to address the issues.

We are actively targeting offenders and using relevant powers and legislation to deal with those found committing anti-social behaviour.

"Keeping you informed"

Neighbourhood Beat Managers and Community Support Officers (CSO)s are regularly updating and providing reassurance to the community

Information is being fed back to the community and partners on a regular basis by officers. Checks have been made in the area and some youths have been spoken to.  This problem seems to be subsiding but we are still patrolling the area regularly particularly in the evenings.
