were agreed as a true record.
PCSO’s Sue Court and Lou
Scott provided the meeting with an update of the crime figures in
the ward compared to the same point last year.
Arson and criminal
These figures were down to
youths stealing mopeds and urged anyone with a moped to secure them
in rear gardens if possible.
In July it is planned to have
20/30 officers walking the ward and trying doors to heighten
awareness and of leaving doors open in the summer months and making
residents more security conscious.
Sue Court then explained about a new initiative called The Herbert
Protocol which was taking place. The Herbert Protocol aimed at reducing
the risk to vulnerable people suffering from dementia or mental
illness that go missing. People are asked to go to the
website and to fill in a printed or electronic form (electronic is
preferable) together with a picture of their loved one; giving
places where they may like to go such as where they shop, went to
school, where they used to live or what bus they used to take
regularly. The form should then be
submitted to the police by email to firstname.lastname@example.org,
or alternatively held at home and the answers can be provided over
the phone. When someone goes
missing then you need to contact the police operator telling them
you have a Herbert Protocol person profile in place.
Leaflets were available on
display at the front of the meeting.
Q. Has there been any reduction
in the number of calls regarding anti social behaviour?
There are not as many calls.
Has there been any decision about the Public Space
Protection Order for West Bank Park?
A. It will be going forward for a decision to
be made in either June or July.
