Peterborough Community Enforcement Team April Report


The Peterborough Tribune is always delighted to publish news of the actions being put into place by the small 8 strong council /police enforcement team, but again we sadly have to report there is little in Sgt Bottells' message below covering Stanground, Fletton, Park Farm and Cardea neighbourhoods.  

We fully understand the much publicised budget and manpower limitations but that train left the station with the outgoing council; there still has to be a way of ensuring the populations of Peterborough South get a visible, and fair share of the remaining available resources. Because it clearly isn't happening.

Since the last report, the motorbikes are back on the Greenwheel riverside path, someone is going to get seriously injured. The latest incident was at 1:30pm today Saturday 23rd April. The bike driven down Kedleston Road, Park Farm at high speed and straight onto the riverside footway,  reportedly narrowly missing a family out for a walk with their small dog and a child on a learner bike with stabiliser wheels.  

Rather than use the My Peterborough App. we are strongly suggesting residents continue to use and the police 101 number or 999 if the incident is in progress.

Hopefully next month we can report some clear ups in Peterborough South. In view of the immediacy of Local Government elections, passing references to councillors have been removed, but rest of the report is as delivered.

Message from
 Warren Bottell (Police, Sergeant, Peterborough)

Please find below a short summary of the work the
 Community Enforcement Team (CET) has been doing recently.

In line with ongoing enhancements being made within the Safer Peterborough Partnership, some members of the CET have been out in town on patrol with City Council officers.

You may have noticed recent press articles and news flying around on twitter regarding the subject. We work very closely with the council and share a floor with them at Bayard Place.

We are now developing how we will eventually become one Prevention and Enforcement Service (PES), together tackling the issues you have reported in a more joined up way than ever before.

We are now increasing our patrol functionality by using PCSO’s working from Thorpe Wood in order to deliver a more focussed patrol concentrating on quality of life issues and patrol functionality. The detail of how these PCSO’s will be used is being finalised and we will update you as soon as this is known.


In the meantime my team have been working with residents and shop keepers in and around the Pyramid Centre, North Bretton. PC Frank Martin has been in talks with the Parish council, youngsters and residents around this location to resolve long running issues around the fear of crime.

Young people do go to the Pyramid Centre to hang out, they do play football there, they can be loud and rowdy. One of the youths involved has recently been sent to prison and his impact is now no longer present.

Some of the other youngsters are under the age of 10. We are working with social services, schools and youth workers to share information and put in place solutions to reduce the issues.

One such solution being talked about is the provision of a Multi-Use Games Area. Other areas of the city have them and are being used to great effect.

We executed a drugs warrant in Bretton – Deerleap to be precise after information was provided regarding a cannabis factory. The occupant was interviewed after we found a small amount of
cannabis for his own use.

Although we don’t specifically tackle cannabis use within homes, it is illegal and often causes anger and distress to neighbours who can smell cannabis.

We often share information about cannabis use with Social Landlords who will monitor the situation and conduct joint visits with the police as necessary. This often results in acceptable behaviour contracts for smoking cannabis, and
could ultimately end up effecting the tenancy of the property.


 We have been patrolling in town with Council officials. We have been speaking to the homeless persons in the city, providing them with support to find alternative places to stay, information regarding help and supplies.

Patrols have also been stopping and speaking to cyclists riding along Bridge Street. A controversial subject I know, and providing advice and guidance where proportionate and using discretion as necessary.

I am led to believe that our council colleagues may well have the powers to issue fixed penalties for this offence in due course.  We have also been investigating fly tipping – this is a big issue and we work closely with the city council neighbourhood enforcement officers to investigate.

PCSO Simonov was on patrol in Whalley St, Eastgate and found a load of household furniture dumped on the street. Utilising the CCTV from a local off licence the offender was discovered and he will be receiving his summons in due course.

Please report fly-tipping, the council are proactive with their investigations, I believe there are about 15 or so offenders
 awaiting prosecution from recent investigations.

We have conducted a sweep of reported squats with the city council homeless officer and immigration officials. Several homeless persons have been identified and served with paperwork by the immigration enforcement team.  These people will be monitored and removed from the UK if they are not following the correct rules.

Ortons and Hampton

 We have been on foot patrol in the Ortons. Ortongate had a visit from PC’s Talbot and Enright. Both officers were part of the local policing team and were able to visit some of the locations known for crime and ASB, using their local knowledge of the area.

Patrols have also been conducted in the Ortons with City Council Officials to gather intelligence around the use of illegal motorbike riders. Motorbikes, as you know are a cause for concern and often cause alarm when ridden on fields and other play areas, such as the BMX track and associated fields at Orton Malborne.

We have visited a couple of addresses known locally to be used by some of the youths involved. One such visit was made to an address in Weatherthorne. A search of the address was made and the occupants provided information on the current situation. PCSO Upex has also been out in the Hamptons, patrolling around Silver Hill and the Hampton centre regarding youth related ASB.

 We responded quickly to issues discovered by local residents regarding anti-social behaviour in Welbourne, Werrington.

Residents reported a small group of other residents holding outside parties, with very loud music, drinking alcohol and smoking cannabis. This was compounded by visitors riding motorbikes and cars recklessly in the area and threats and intimidation resulted.

Patrols were conducted, the resident at the address believed to be the catalyst for these activities was arrested and his address searched. He is now subject to a warning. He could now face being issued with a 3 month closure order if things don’t improve.

Another residents has been interviewed for threatening behaviour and his fate is in the balance.


 We have held a drop in session at Hampton Ct in conjunction with Cross Keys ASB surgery. PCSO Buckingham will be holding them every 3 weeks, with the next one being on the 5/5/16 between 1030 and 1230. At the last session residents were telling us about drug dealing, loose dogs and motorbike riding in and around Hampton Court. As a result we have stepped up patrols to provide reassurance. (We have not witnessed any issues at this time)


Patrols are being conducted in Paston, particularly Crabtree following several reports of racist attacks and intimidation to some residents.

When we catch those people involved, tough action will follow. Shopkeepers and residents around Chadburn have reported a drop in ASB since action was taken against a small group of youngsters. Bob Hill, ASB coordinator within the SPP is collating intelligence, please contact Bob on 01733 747474 with information regarding this issue.


We are getting reports of youth related anti-social behaviour around Grove Court flats, in Woodston. Youths are using the alleyways and landings to hang out smoke drugs and cause minor damage. This is now on our radar and will be receiving attention to protect some of the vulnerable residents very soon.

Sorry to go on a bit, but I hope you find the information useful. We are only a team of 8 officers, covering all of Peterborough and we work hard for you.

We work well with the city council officials and hope to deliver more of the same with them and our PCSO colleagues in our Prevention and Enforcement Service. We enjoy our work and we are happy to serve the residents of Peterborough.

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 independently resourced Neighbourhood Watch Scheme. A scheme operated following written guidelines to us directly from the Home Office.

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.
