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.

The city centre team saw success when they recovered items stolen from x3 burglaries when a PCSO spotted a known burglar in a retail store selling items. Discovered he had been using a second account with a different surname to offload stolen property – the result was one very happy Xbox owner who had their property returned!
We have also executed other successful drugs warrants including our most recent one on the Op Can Do area - where we recovered £1k in cash, 40-50 wraps of heroin, several items of stolen property and made three arrests.
I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that in order to continue to tackle your concerns about drug dealing and other quality of life issues and use our resources where we need to, we need to hear from you and your communities and have established a new email account which can be used to contact us (as well as 101, Crimestoppers etc.):

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.

Editorial policy: WE DON'T CENSOR NEWS, we will however come down hard on lawbreakers, all forms of ASB - Anti Social Behaviour, and anyone or group who seek to disturb or disrupt our neighbourhoods and communities, or in anyway abuse, take unfair advantage or financially disadvantage our citizens. We support the Park Farm Neighbourhood Watch and digitally carry the messages from this independent Neighbourhood Watch Scheme.

We are openly but constructively critical of all political parties (actual and sham), pressure groups, overbearing 'jobsworths' and those who seek to waste public funds, abuse public office, ramp up expenses, BUY VOTES and/or engage in any form of directed or robotic voting.

Whilst accepting that many in Public Office perform a valuable service and make a worthwhile contribution, there are others who are frankly rubbish. Although Julian Bray is the editor, there are several Blog administrators / correspondents who actively contribute by remote transmission to this blog.

So it could be some days before the copy (content) is seen by the Editor and properly formatted. We consider all representations and correct any facts that are clearly deficient.

2 Strives to ensure that information disseminated is honestly conveyed, accurate and fair

3 Does her/his utmost to correct harmful inaccuracies

4 Differentiates between fact and opinion

5 Obtains material by honest, straightforward and open means, with the exception of investigations that are both overwhelmingly in the public interest and which involve evidence that cannot be obtained by straightforward means

6 Does nothing to intrude into anybody's private life, grief or distress unless justified by overriding consideration of the public interest

7 Protects the identity of sources who supply information in confidence and material gathered in the course of her/his work

8 Resists threats or any other inducements to influence, distort or suppress information and takes no unfair personal advantage of information gained in the course of her/his duties before the information is public knowledge
