Ongoing issues with youths gathering in the Parishes carpark on FENTON STREET, where they are throwing eggs Taxi drivers. Also issues with cars gathering with numerous vehicles entering the car park and racing in their vehicle causing ASB issues. Liaised with security for the car park to ensure they secure the premises at night to avoid loitering of youths. Identify youths who are regularly loitering in these areas and deal with by issuing verbal warnings. PC JEANS is working with her Linda BLOW to come up with a solution to curve ASB at this location.

Plain clothes operation completed; group of male’s details sent to Safer Neighbourhoods regarding ASB panel.

Plain clothes operation conducted on 15/05/2021. The car park/surrounding areas were very quiet, no youths or persons congregating. This has been feedback to Linda BLOW.

The Team have been successful in obtaining a Drugs warrant that will be taking place this Thursday (22/07/2021), we are also looking at an address on Sheffield Street due to the high number of calls of ASB.  

Targeted Enforcement Activities:

Plain clothes operations around the multi-storey car park will continue to tackle the ASB in the area, safer neighbourhoods have identified 60 children and sent letters to those committing anti-social behaviour in the multi-story. PC JEANS is managing this problem.


Utilising Humber Talking Feedback to Set Priorities and Take Action:

Humber talking surveys completed on the following:

AXHOLME ROAD – PC 2257 Miller attended Axholme Road and conducted Humber Talking Surveys with the local residents. The feedback was generally good and no issues in the area.

MARKET HILL – PC 1432 Garrod and PC 965 Roberts have conducted Humber Talking Surveys.

SHEARWOOD VALE – PCSO Barton & PCSO Lawson have conducted Humber talking Surveys around Sherwood Vale regarding Op Gallant. Most of the residents had no issues and were given words of advice regarding the recent Shed burglary. Most of the residents stated they were unhappy with the recent traveller’s site which have plotted up on the grass area opposite their properties as they are causing ASB and noise issues. This has now been resolved as the travellers have been moved on and are no longer there.
