Local policing priorities for Newport

Looking for something else?

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

Priority

 Complaints have been received that groups are congregating in the parks causing Anti Social Behaviour.

Issued 11 September, 2017

Action taken

11/09/2017- SNT to conduct patrols at key times to deter any ASB taking place.

 

02/10/17 - Regular afternoon and evening patrols of Norboom and Victoria Parks have been conducted by both Newport SNT and the ICM PCSO's. Three persons and one vehicle have been subjected to searches under the Misuse of Drugs Act and one person received a police caution for possession of cannabis on Norbroom Park. We are aware of concerns raised by parents of young children re older children / teenagers using the play equipment at Victoria park. Unfortunately there is no byelaw or enforceable age limits or restrictions for this play park (or indeed any other in Newport) and as such, police have no legal powers to stop or prevent anyone using the equipment therein. Officers will continue to monitor for ASB related issues.

Priority

Complaints have been received that people are parking inconsiderately in Newport High Street causing obstruction to other road users and pedestrians in the area.

Issued 11 September, 2017

Action taken

11/09/2017 - SNT to conduct patrols in the area to assess the situation and deal with any obstruction to the highway.

Priority

 Reports have been received from local residents and businesses that boy racers are attending Stafford Street, Newport causing Anti Social Behaviour and noise nuisance.

A number of vehicles gather for a period of time on the car park causing a nuisance to other road users and pedestrians.

Issued 11 September, 2017

Action taken

 11/09/17 - Patrols conducted by SNT in the area providing reassurance and prevention of vehicles gathering.

02/10/17 - Newport SNT have completed a two week monitoring project of reported issues on Stafford Street & Waitrose car parks associated with 'boy racers' in the evenings, both using marked police vehicles on the car parks and via the town CCTV system. Where a small number of noise related issues have been noted (music and talking very loudly amongst the group), occupants of vehicles have been engaged with and asked to reduce their noise which they have done. Vehicles have been noted traveling singly and in convoy between the car parks but there have been no traffic offence related issues noted bar one motorist who was advised regarding a non conforming registration plate. We still await the promised installation of a second CCTV camera at the Audley Road end of Stafford Street car park by Telford & Wrekin Council which will provide better coverage of the lower half of the car park and Audley Road itself.
