This months report follows:
BRAESIDE & MANNOFIELD Community Council Report
This report covers progress we have made in dealing with your priorities for the Braeside & Mannofield Community Council area during the period 1st April to 30th April 2018.
The report aims to highlight emerging issues in your area, and to provide crime prevention advice and guidance to Community Council members and residents you represent. Our focus is to reduce crime and disorder, help create safer communities and respond effectively to local concerns.
Community Policing Priorities
Antisocial behaviour, Violence and Disorder:There continues to be a decrease in the amount of Antisocial Behaviour calls within area, those reported mostly relate to late night revellers returning home and the antisocial use of motorcycles predominantly along A93 and Craigton road leading out of the City.
There have been no Assaults this reporting period.
There were 2 instances of Vandalism reported, both where windows of vehicles were broken 2 but not in circumstances which would suggest a Theft.
There have been 2 Thefts in the area, enquiries are ongoing and we would ask you to check your sheds and garages are locked and the valuable items within are secured, enquiries are still ongoing into these crimes. There have been no reported Housebreakings in the area.
Road Safety & Road Crime:
In response to your requests Officers will be taking a robust approach balancing education with enforcement to ensure the relatively small minority who are responsible for committing offences and antisocial behaviour with vehicles are held accountable for their actions. We will be working with partners and making use of antisocial behaviour legislation. Residents in the areas affected by antisocial driving are encouraged to contact Police on 101 at the time to report incidents in order for us to take positive action.
We will continue to address local speeding issues and support our local schools in
ensuring the safety of YOUR children with operations around our local Primary's to
educate irresponsible and selfish parents, I'm sure you know who they are!
Community Engagement & Reassurance
I am certain you are tired of me saying LOCK YOUR DOORS month in month out and at every meeting, however if there is one thing YOU can do to reduce crime in YOUR community its circulating the message to LOCK THEIR DOORS. Don’t get me wrong the others are important but when you get up to find that your car is missing because someone left the front door open and the keys hanging up beside it you will rightly expect ALL our local resources to be deployed to help you.
We want to address ALL the local issues, but need to place a significant emphasis on acquisitive crime. The majority of those stealing from us don’t live in our area, so if in the middle of the night you think something just isn't right, trust your judgement and give us a call right away, either as an emergency on 999 or to the Service Centre on 101.
Over the last month there has been an increase in people reporting door to door salesmen, invariably offenders wanting to sell you something from the doorstep these people need to have a peddlers licence even then we would like to know about them via 101 as on occasion this has been a method of "distraction" theft.
The importance of the relationship between you the Community Council and us your CPT in preventing crime cannot be underestimated, you are an integral part of our community and as such have access to information and opinions not open or readily accessible to us.
You can help us in being able to take local action on behalf of local people. We would like to take this opportunity to express our thanks for the overwhelming support our feedback plans have received. We will continue to feed back to the individual Community Councils the specific points they have raised.
We all think we are too savvy to be taken in by fraudsters, that’s why they choose to pray on the elderly and other vulnerable groups. Please take a moment to have a look and pass the message on to anyone you think could be at risk. We cannot over emphasize the importance of ensuring our seniors are aware of the advice contained below, every month we hear of instances when this knowledge would have saved someone becoming a victim of this type of fraud and often loosing
substantial sums of money. Please share this advice with everyone
