What are we doing to help reduce crime and ASB?
As part of our efforts to reduce crime and antisocial behaviour, officers are completing both plain clothes and high visibility patrols in areas identified as ward priorities, as well as areas identified as hot spots through analysis of crime and intelligence.
Information from residents will also influence and direct our patrols.
Working with the council
Another weapon in our arsenal when it comes to tackling antisocial behaviour is to work closely with the council and other Registered Social Landlords. We have highlighted issues to Circle/OldFord Housing and from these joint patrols occur with SNT and Circle housing ASB officers at a minimum of once a month.
Following recent incidents around Gladstone Place, Acceptable Behaviour Contracts have been issued to repeat antisocial offenders.
A big thank you to members of the public following intelligence received from them, combined with information from officers carrying out their routine patrols, which enabled Bow East SNT to execute two drugs warrants leading to several arrests and over a kilo of cannabis recovered as well as stolen goods.
Information from the public is vital for us to continue to tackle offenders in this manner.
By taking drugs and offenders off the streets we hope to make an impact in the levels of antisocial behaviour experienced on our ward.
Please contact us with any useful information that you may have, even if using the anonymous Crimestoppers.
Youth Antisocial Behaviour
Several Acceptable Behaviour Contracts have been given to youths who have repeatedly caused issues over the past year around Gladstone Place. Some first time offenders have been given strong words of advice with their families in the hopes of steering them away from this behaviour without having to take firmer action. We continue to monitor the youths and the situation.
New Ward Sergeant
After a hard-spent few years on Bow East, PS Sampson has left on promotion, and Bow East Ward welcomes PS Cowley to takeover the helm.
