COMMUNITY POLICING UPDATE
Since the restructure we have had a number of noteworthy successes which complement our purpose to reassure the public and reduce Anti Social Behaviour [ASB] through intervention and enforcement.
Police Officers spent a week tackling reports of drug dealing and ASB in the Central Park area and as a result made three arrests for drug related offences, stopped three people in possession of cannabis and stopped and searched 22 people in the area.
This was followed up by the successful execution of a drugs warrant when community enforcement officers raided an address in Park Road, Peterborough which led to the arrest of three people and the seizure of 600 cannabis plants with an estimated street value of thousands of pounds.
I mentioned that we are reviewing how we engage with the public in future. Thank you to those if you who have made suggestions and given me feedback on this important issue.
We are now ready to pilot our engagement methods and will be doing so in January with a view to rolling them out District-wide from April 2016. We are also exploring the idea of things like community special constables and PCSOs funded by Parish Councils. I will keep you up to date as we progress these ideas.
