The following Neighbourhood priorities relate to your area:

1. September 2016: Anti Social Behaviour Tesco - Sunderland Retail Park

"What you told us" 

  • A number of residents have expressed their concern about Anti Social behaviour – Roker retail park  

  • This is reflected in complaints from residents and at P.A.C.T meetings 

  • This has been identified as a priority from September 2016 

"What we are doing about it"

We have had a number of complaints about Anti Social Behaviour in the Area of Roker retail Park. The Tesco supermarket and McDonalds’ regularly report incidents of anti social behaviour as do local residents using these facilities.

This issue tends to peak across the winter months January to March

There have also been a few low level thefts including theft of pedal cycles from Tesco and Pure Gym.

Your local Neighbourhood Police team are already aware of this issue and have taken positive action on a number of occasions regarding those responsible.

We also work closely with Sunderland Council and 3G Camera has recently been installed in the area.

Priority tasking has been put in place for both 24/7 response officers and your local Neighbourhood team and this will continue throughout September 2016.  

"Keeping you informed"

Police Community Support Officers will be engaging with the Community to let them know what is happening. Further updates will be provided at the local P.A.C.T meeting and on the Website.  

 

2. September 2016: Anti -Social Behaviour around Hylton Castle

“What you told us”

  • A number of residents have expressed their concern about Anti-Social behaviour in the Hylton Castle Area 

  • This was a significant concern to residents during recent school holidays and there were a number of reports of stones being thrown at cars and houses  

  • This has been identified as a priority from the September 2016.

“What are we doing about it ?”

Your local Neighbourhood Police Team will be increasing patrols in the area and this has also been highlighted as a priority to 24/7 response officers.

We will also be visiting schools to advise children of the dangers involved in throwing stones at moving vehicles.

The response to these types of incidents is always carried out in partnership with Sunderland City Council, Gentoo and local youth providers. Once we identify offenders the children will be visited at home and spoken to infront of their parents. If it is a Gentoo owned property this could also have consequences for the parents and the tenancy of their home.

The grounds of Hylton Castle have also been identified as a place where youths gather over the winter months. The police work closely with English Heritage to protect the site and carry out both uniform and covert patrols in the area.
