UPDATE on work of community safety patrol officers (CSPOs) last week

Community SafetyLast week our community safety patrol officers dealt with 72 incidents, including fly-tipping, welfare checks and antisocial behaviour.

The majority of incidents dealt with last week related to antisocial behaviour, including littering incidents. Additional temporary signage has been installed and the team continues to work closely with operations in order to ensure all areas are kept clean.

Patrols are continuing in busier areas of the borough, such as parks and open spaces, due to the potential increase in gatherings following the easing of COVID-19 restrictions. More patrols are also being dedicated to the town centre after more shops reopened on Monday 15 June.

The team continues to encourage residents to follow the government’s guidance when it is clear they are not complying and the police continue to report a good level of compliance from residents.
