Safer Neighbourhood officers in Long Eaton Rural are vowing to tackle anti-social behaviour (ASB) after residents raised concerns at a recent community panel meeting. Members of the team met with local people on Tuesday, July 14th and heard how ASB at the park on Hopwell Road and around the multi-user games area (MUGA) on Derby Road in Draycott was an issue. Sergeant Nick Pitt and PCSO Karen Pykett are now hoping to tackle the issue by increasing high visibility patrols in hotspot areas; encouraging the community to report nuisance behaviour and taking positive action with individuals or groups found to be persistently causing ASB.
Local residents who witness ASB or would like to report suspicious behaviour are being urged to contact the team on 101, giving details of the time and place where it occurs and description where possible of perpetrators. The area’s next community panel meeting is set to take place between 7.30pm and 9.30pm on Thursday, October 1st at Stanton by Dale Parish Council Rooms.
