Police / Council Community Enforcement Team April Update ANTI SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR & CRIMINAL DAMAGE ON THE INCREASE

A report on the work carried out in April  by the Police / Council Community Enforcement Team.

Report collated by PCSO Igor Simonov  Peterborough Police - Hampton.

We have listened to your concerns and conducted patrols around the Black Bridge in Stanground, acting on reports of children causing anti-social and potentially life threatening issues and dangerous behaviour around the railway.

The Pyramid Centre – We've made numerous visits to the Pyramid Centre in the last 2 weeks, following a rise in ASB (anti-social behaviour) from young adults and children gathering in the centre.

We've engaged with shopkeepers and members of the public, and have strongly  'advised' a group of people in the Pyramid Centre who were loitering.

We obtained details and advised them on perceptions of ASB (Anti-Social Behaviour) indicating how groups of people can appear to be intimidating to others, whilst not breaking the law.

One of the shops at the centre had its display window smashed after a boy aged about 14, was seen to kick in the plate glass on the 24/3/16.

We need to find out who this youth is. If you know please tell us. Confidentiality assured.

The Police have been working in close partnership with Cross Keys Homes, who have issued 'a problematic tenant' a Notice Seeking Possession of his flat in relation to ASB (anti-social behaviour) at one of their properties in the Norburn area of North Bretton.

Paston – Ongoing patrols at Chadburn shops and surrounding area to reduce ASB (anti-social behaviour) have been conducted.

Officers have liaised with local residents and businesses who suggest they have seen a decline in recent incidents, with the pedestrianised area around Chadburn.

Shops no longer being seen as a catalyst for local youths to harass and intimidate pedestrians in the locality. Please let us know if this is the case.
One of the youths involved in causing ASB (anti-social behaviour)  in and around Paston has been served with a 2 year Criminal Behaviour Order when he was sentenced by Peterborough Youth Court on the 6/4/16 for littering, criminal damage and making threats to commit criminal damage.

The youth concerned also has a year long curfew, is not allowed to go to Chadburn and is not to engage in ASB (anti-social behaviour) in Paston. He also received a youth rehabilitation order and ordered to pay compensation.

Westwood - Officers have been out on foot patrols around the Hampton Court shops, speaking with shopkeepers and some of the local young people.

Residents have reported feeling intimidated by youngsters hanging around the area. 

We have also received reports about children gathering mostly in the evening. Aged 10-23. Reports of them being noisy, swearing, littering and vandalism.

Foot patrols of both this and the surrounding areas, have been carried out, whilst speaking to members of the public to provide a reassurance.  

This is something we will continue to do over the coming weeks, with the lighter evenings and warmer weather now upon us.

Youth intervention workers from the SPP team have also been seen out and about engaging with people in the area.

Orton. We carried out a search at an address in Weatherthorn following reports of Cannabis dealing, and motorbikes being used in an anti-social manner from the address.

The thorough search was as part of a team initiative to tackle these concerns after members of the community contacted the SPP, Prevention and Enforcement Service on April 7th. 

We encourage you to carry on reporting any suspicions you may have. As  it’s only by working together we can make a positive difference.  

PCSO Durrell and PCSO Simonov were on patrol in the city when they were approached by a victim of a reported burglary. They helped to secure vital evidence after the victim pointed out two men who he believed were responsible.

The PCSO’s detained the two men until Police  arrived to investigate further.

We would therefore urge you to continue to assist us and report any
sightings of suspicious activity on 999 in an emergency, or the 101 in a non-emergency.

Thank you to those who have provided information on local issues. We try to keep up to date with information coming in through E-cops, Facebook and Twitter.
