The Town NPT have undertaken a lot of work this month based on the intelligence gained particularly around drug dealing and vulnerable people being taken advantage of. The Market Hill work shows clearly that a multi agency problem solving approach is being successful. NPT officers have been trained in the use of Bike Register marking. This will be put to use in the coming months to mark up the publics cycles at various events. Joint visits with the Outreach Youth Workers have been conducted around the town area. This involves speaking to local youths and seeing what they want in the area and how the agencies can help.
