Minutes:

 

 Inspector Tina Osborn outlined the local priorities

 

·         ASB and littering – that youths were congregating behind in the Woodland area and also in Zouch Parade and Zouch Recreation Park Tidworth, causing anti social behaviour and littering. High visibility patrols had taken place and following these patrols had seen a reduction in reports of anti social behaviour in all areas

 

·         Speeding – Local Police continued to support our Community Speed watch Teams where possible. Patrols would be focusing on Park Road, Pennings Road and Bulford Road in Tidworth and Boscombe Road & Stonehenge Road in Amesbury the coming weeks. The team were also supporting CSW volunteers in other areas

 

·         Community Consultations – Local Police would be increasing community consultations and the dates would be advertised on social media
platforms such as Face Book. Consultations would be themed; i.e. drug issues, ASB, Parking, Knife Crime and were planning to hold one every 2 weeks over the next 2 months. They would be at various locations

 

·         Rural Crime – issue; ongoing regular patrols were being conducted on the Plain. Local patrols were engaging with local farmers and providing them with relevant crime prevention advice. The team would also be carrying out proactive operations in conjunction with our Rural Crime Team

 

·         ASB involving vehicles – Local patrols had received reports of ASB involving the use of vehicles in Solstice Rise, Milston Road & John Gay Road Amesbury. ASB survey had been delivered to properties within these areas to establish the extent of the problem. Regular patrols would be carried out in the area to deal with any reported issues

 

Points also made included:

 

·         That Inspector Osborn was keen to have local police at Neighbourhood tasking group meetings & parish council meetings

 

·         Speedwatch in Ludgershall – ongoing, volunteers need to get their paperwork sorted out to progress this
