What's Happening In Your Area?

Details

Child Criminal Exploitation: There has been a notable increase over the last few months of youths who are being coerced or threatened into crime and as such our team wishes to abolish Child Criminal Exploitation on the Sidney Sussex area. This would not be possible without every agency assisting, and as such we aim to be active on our ward and target addresses and people which have information being fed through. We will be available to ask advice about this matter and strive to do everything we can to prevent these types of offences taking place.

Child Sexual Exploitation: This issue has been raised due to the heightened number of reported issues regarding Child Sexual Exploitation and is a priority that every officer aims to prevent. Prevention would not be possible without every agency assisting, and as such we aim to be active on our ward and target addresses and people which are involved, or have been involved. Our local officers will respond to every call regarding this matter effectively and will strive to get the best resolution for all parties affected. Information about this matter should be fed through either the 101 system or the GET IN TOUCH email link above as a matter of priority.

Burglaries: We are experiencing a large number of burglaries currently on the Sidney Sussex Ward area. Please ensure that you take time to secure your property, even if you are in the property at the time. People committing these offences currently are entering houses via the rear gardens and open windows or doors and into the properties to steal what they can get their hands on. They will be in and out of the house quickly and not concerned whether people are in at the time. Please take the appropriate actions and ensure you are checking the doors and windows are locked, particularly if you are in another part of the house. Any concerns or information, please rin us on 101 or 999 in an emergency.

Anti Social Behaviour - As a team for the Sidney Sussex Ward we are currently working our way round, when availability allows, the area knocking on your door to see if you wish to take part in our My Community Alerts System. By completing a short questionnaire, we are able to highlight, from the answers provided, the issues in your immediate area that you would like us to take on and reduce.

Please click on the link - www.mycommunityalert.co.uk to register and have a say about the issues in your area. We can also keep you up to date with alerts as things happen that are relevant to you.

For ASB, this area is broken down into 3 main areas for recording purposes and although this is high on your priority list, the number of actual reported incidents for the ward area are low (only 7 reported incidents in December). I would ask that any ASB is reported to the police so we can get a true picture of what is going on.

ASB to most people, would be children kicking a football in the street instead of going to the park or noise nuisance. We understand that peoples perception of ASB is different for each individual, but historically, the recorded number for these types of incidents in the Sidney Sussex area are very low. We have recently had a small increase of ASB issues on the Sussex recreational ground area and also around the Todays Store on Brereton Avenue/Elliston Street. Please, if you see youths causing annoyance/ASB, can i ask that you report it to us. If you know the people involved, let us know.

We would appeal to you to call in on 101 if you have any information with regards to the location/s of any of the illegal motorcycles on the road. Please consider when you see groups of kids around shops causing issues that this may be an issue for the staff and the residents in the immediate vicinity. If you see this, please consider giving us a call to report it.

Drug dealing and drug misuse: Drugs are a major issue that every area of policing has to deal with. Across the Sidney Sussex ward there has been a notable increase in drug activity over the last few years and we have been acting on this with regular Misuse of Drugs Act warrants. If you believe you know an address or person that may be involved with drugs, then please get in touch and let us know. 

Where we have ASB, criminal activity and issues around an address, please let the police know. We work very closely with the council and can look at ways of tackling the ASB/drugs problems with house closures form problem houses.

We have had recent success with a number of warrants carried out on the Sidney Sussex ward area and are actively disrupting the drug dealers that are targeting our vulnerable people.

We are very keen for you to ring in on 101 to report drug activity in your area. Please note that with each report, we can work to build that bigger picture in order obtain a warrant from the local courts and we can then go to these houses and stop the activities.

Theft of and from motorvehicles: We have recently seen an increase in theft of motor vehicles (mainly motorcycles and mopeds) and theft from motor vehicles - please ensure you secure your property as best you can, in particular with regards to motorcycles, purchase a decent lock or locks to secure, check the alarms are working and make it hard for someone to take. People will take something that is quick and easy to do so. With regards to your cars, please take time to ensure that you remove any valuables and not leave anything on display. Again, people will look into the vehicle and if they see something of value worth taking they will be in and out of the vehicle quickly causing damage and making it a costly experiance.
