Cracking down on anti-social behaviour
Beverley Police have stepped up patrols on the town’s Swinemoor Estate following reports of problems caused by youths indulging in anti-social behaviour. Town police Inspector Philip Hinch said officers were acting following reports, including disturbances being caused by motorbike riders.
He also confirmed police were pressing ahead with training volunteers who have come forward to help monitor the town’s CCTV cameras, particularly at peak times such as Friday and Saturday evenings. The cameras are monitored at the town’s police station and Inspector Hinch said those who had volunteered to help were now being vetted and given the appropriate training. Their role would be in support of serving officers.
Meanwhile, people across the East Riding are being asked for their views on anti-social behaviour and tackling crime in order to shape community safety projects over the next four years. The East Riding Community Safety Partnership is asking residents, businesses, voluntary organisations and community groups to tell them where they think money should be spent on tackling crime and disorder.
The Partnership involves organisations such as East Riding of Yorkshire Council, Humberside Police, Humberside Fire and Rescue Service as well as health partners, working together to reduce crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour. Partnership chairman Councillor Shaun Horton told Beverley FM: “This survey is open to anyone and I would urge people to give us their views as it will help us determine what the community safety partnership will deliver over the next four years.” To complete the survey, or for more information go to bit.ly/communitysafetysurvey before Sunday 5th November.
