Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities in this neighbourhood.


There has recently been an increase in reported vehicle crimes across the Shirehampton area. In particular wing mirrors are being damaged or removed from parked vehicles during the evening and overnight. If you have suffered from such a crime in the last 2 months and have yet to report this to Police, please can you consider reporting via 101 or on line reporting. Details can be found on this page. If you have any information that could assist in the investigation and help to identify the offenders please Contact the Police or your local Beat Manager, PC Amanda Patterson.
This has now be raised as a beat priority as per the PACT meeting held in June.

It as been agreed that there will be a partnership approach with the Police to tackle this issue for the next 3 months.
