Police & Council Community Enforcement Team March Report

Our latest update in relation to the work the Community Enforcement Team have been doing over the last two weeks. 

During our day shifts, we investigated Anti-Social Behaviour reports and work with partner agencies, including  Cross Keys Homes to deal with live incidents and help manage Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB). Police also go on patrol on foot and cycle, covering different parts of the area.

Park Farm

Numerous foot and cycle patrols conducted around Park Farm following reports of egg throwing and motorbike riding on the foot paths and green wheel. Sadly we did not see any local youths or motorbikes when we patrolled.

We visited a problematic address on Park Farm Way and will be liaising with Accent Nene regarding some of the issues found.

St Johns Road, Stanground

We had reports of motor bikes using the walkway between St. Johns Road and Church St, so we patrolled around 10pm and eventually stopped a lad who was wheeling his motorbike through the walkway. No doubt he would have been riding it had we not been there, however, suitable advice was given and acknowledged
 to his credit. No offences were committed on this occasion. I’m not saying this issue has been solved but we are trying to do what we can.

On the 22nd March we assisted Cross Keys with the eviction of a drug dealer from her flat on the Welland Estate. This particular issue came about as a result of a Police operation back in November 2014.

A warrant was executed and the occupant of the flat was caught in possession of Class A drugs in sufficient quantity, along with other evidence to convict her of possession of drugs with intent to supply.

Having been convicted of the offence in September 2015, an application was made by Cross Keys Homes to the High
 Court for an eviction order, which was granted after a short hearing supported by  evidence given by the Police and Cross Keys. High Court bailiffs then attended with the Police and the tenant was formally evicted from her flat.

It may take some  time to resolve these types of problems but in the end justice will prevail.

In March we  assisted Peterborough City Council Noise Pollution Team to execute a warrant issued by the courts to seize equipment from a house in Werrington.
The occupant of the premises had been causing noise issues for other residents,  despite warnings,  a warrant was issued and executed. TV’s, stereo and speakers were confiscated as a result.

In the meantime, police officers have been on patrol in various neighbourhoods over the last two weeks.

Benyon Grove, Orton Malborne
This neighbourhood has in the past been subject to criminal damage and a couple of motor bikes have been riding around the BMX track and nearby locations.

We have been on patrol targeting the times we know that these issues are happening. I can report that we have not witnessed any anti-social behaviour while we have been here.

I have received reports as a result of these messages to tell us that
 the issues still persist, please let us know what is going on, it helps to  keep us in the loop. We will continue to target this area. We have asked the CCTV operators to monitor the area.


There are continuing issues in and around Paston with a small group of youths. 4 of which are already subject to Acceptable Behaviour Contracts (ABC). We are  investigating any breaches of the ABC’s and will be working with Cross Keys to reduce further issues of ASB.

One of these youths has recently appeared at court having been charged with criminal damage, threatening to commit damage and littering and has pleaded guilty. He will be sentenced early next month.

Central Park

We have been out in Central Park at various times of the day and evening, on cycle and foot. We have not found any issues with ASB in the Park when we attended. We have put up additional CCTV warning signs in the Park, which may have a deterrent effect. We will continue to patrol in the area.

Hampton Court, Westwood.

We have been on patrol in and around Hampton Court. We have spoken to local shopkeepers and engaged with some of the local youths. So far it has been quiet.

If you know the names of any particular trouble makers then please let us know. A group of youths have been identified who have been causing problems in Lutton Grove and they will be visited in due course.

We will also be running a walk in ASB surgery in Hampton Court at the Cross Keys Hub every 3rd  Thursday. Details to be released in due course.


We have spent some time engaging some of the local teenagers in Central Avenue, in the evenings, patrolled around the Welland estate on cycles.


We have also been on patrol in Whitsted St and Eastfield Rd to tackle cannabis smokers in the flats at the location, providing reassurance to residents and liaising with the housing provider to tighten up security.

Hampton Hargate and Vale

 We have spent a bit of time patrolling around Four Chimneys Crescent checking out the situation. There was an abandoned car outside One Stop which was reported to DVLA. The car has now been removed. 

 We help to run the Hampton  Friday night project at the Hampton Community Sports Association, playing football with local youngsters. (Anyone interested in volunteering with this,  please get in touch).

The Pyramid Centre - Bretton

We continue to patrol around the Pyramid Centre but problems still persist with a minority of young local men behaving like children, playing football in the centre and intimidating customers.

We are aware of the issues and have shared this information with other police units and CCTV to monitor and respond when we are not on duty.

Police regularly send out tweets from our twitter account @PboroCops, feel free to check us out!

Have a good Easter, stay safe until next time.

Kind regards
