The following Neighbourhood priorities relate to your area:

1. March 2016: Drug Abuse in Berwick

What you told us  
 
There has been an increase in the number of reports of drug taking/dealing and associated disorder caused by people frequenting address and locations where drug use is suspected

What we are doing about it

Officers from Berwick have gathered intelligence and used it to direct action against the people causing the problem and the locations affected by it.  To date in 2016, officers have executed 11 search warrants, arrested 16 people and recovered class A, B and C drugs

 Keeping you informed

As a direct result of this activity there has been a reduction in drug dealing and anti-social behaviour in Berwick Town, Spittal and Tweedmouth.  Other people are still being monitored by officers and this activity will continue in response to the information gathered by the officers and from the public in general

2. Anti-Social behaviour in residential areas

What you told us

Anti-Social Behaviour caused by a small number of people disproportionately affects communities

What we are doing about it

A recent application for a CRASBO against a local offender who was affecting Tweedmouth and Spittal has been granted by Berwick Magistrates.  The subject has conditions which prevent him engaging in anti-social behaviour, or being with others engaging in anti-social behaviour.  Any breach will result in the subjects arrest and presentation before the Magistrates Court.

"Keeping you informed"

As a direct result of this activity there has been a reduction in anti-social behaviour in Berwick Town, Spittal and Tweedmouth.  Other people are still being monitored by officers and this has resulted in a reduction in anti-social behaviour which has previously had a negative impact on Berwick
