City Central Strategic Priorities: January to March 2024
Issued 18 January 2024
Serious violence remains a key priority, I want to ensure that people feel safe within the our community. Extra patrols have continued during the darker nights as we continue to focus on preventing violent crime particularly against women and girls and knife crime. Help Points have now been installed on the Forest Recreational Ground in an effort to make those using the area feel safer, this was funded through Safer Streets.
In all forms. ASB continues to be a priority, we are working hard to combat this with extra patrols, the continuation of operation Brandberg (an operation to address aggressive begging). Evening student patrols will also be continuing in the next few weeks.
Burglaries have continued to be an issue over the winter period. We have continued to spend time offering crime prevention advice to those that need it. As the dark nights continue it is important, we continue to patrol the right areas to prevent our community being victims of burglary. We have again made some key arrests during the last few months for burglary.
