Residents vote on crime concerns while PACT meeting gives them a voice

CONCERN over burglaries and anti-social behaviour have topped the latest poll by the Police Safer Neighbourhood Teams in Alcester north and Alcester south areas.

As a result the SNT in Alcester south is to devote more time to extra patrols to target burglaries in the Bidford and Broom areas.

They are also launching extra patrols targeting anti-social behaviour on the Conway Estate and Conway Fields in Alcester itself.

They will also be carrying out weight restriction checks on vehicles using the medieval bridges over the River Avon at Welford and Bidford.

In the Alcester north area, the SNT will be increasing its presence in the Earlswood Lakes area and in Studley in a bid to tackle anti-social behaviour.

In an effort to crack down on speeding through Ullenhall, police will be carrying out more spot checks on vehicles.

These new priorities will be in addition to the normal policing roles by officers.

Meanwhile residents of Winyates and Matchborough can have their say on crime and anti-social behaviour at the next area Partners and Communities Together (PACT) meeting at 6.30pm on Tuesday, July 3, at Redditch Boxing Academy, Matchborough Centre, where local police officers, councillors and representatives will be present.
