Sutton Town Centre Retail
Crime

Why is this the priority?

    Last
    year saw problematic behaviour mainly centred around the misuse of drugs
    (mamba). This brought with it increased volumes of ASB and retail crime.

    Last
    year saw the implementation of a problem solving plan which reduced the
    amount of drugs and ASB activity within the town centre.

    However
    across the district retail crime has increased with Sutton being
    statistically the most affected area and we want to reduce this

    The
    warmer months also traditionally bring an increase of ASB in the town
    centre which we hope to be proactive in preventing

    Sutton
    is also soon be entering a stage of regeneration and the issues above can
    reduce the effectiveness of this work and as part of the Ashfield
    community partnership we are dedicated to supporting our partners to
    making Ashfield a better and safer place to live and visit

    What are we doing?

    A bespoke partnership problem solving plan began in
    May 2019. This includes representatives from:

    Ashfield NPT

    ADC Community Protection Officers

    ADC Environmental Health

    ADC Town Centre Manager

    Managers from Wilko’s, Asda and the Idlewells Centre

    Local District Councillors

    The town centre now has a dedicated beat officer
    and two PSCO’s who are engrained within the community. This is very important
    for engagement and will ensure that we understand the views of the community
    when making plans to resolve issues.

    Proactive use of civil powers including dispersal
    orders are being used when applicable to remove and ban trouble causers from
    the town centre

    Crime and ASB in Sutton
    East (Leamington and New Cross)

    Why is this the priority?

    The
    Ashfield Neighbourhood Policing Team aims to take an evidence based
    approach to identifying and resolving Crime and ASB problems within the
    district.

    Over
    the long term the Sutton East beat is constantly attracting the highest
    volumes of ASB across the district which mirror concerns regularly raised
    by members of the community to our officers on patrol.

    Sutton
    East also features within our vulnerability analysis relating to Robbery,
    Knife Crime, Acquisitive Crime and Domestic Violence.

    What are we doing?

    Ashfield NPT

    ADC Community Protection Officers

    ADC Housing

    ADC Town Centre Manager

    Representatives from local safer neighbourhood committees.

    Local District Councillors

    Two dedicated beat officers have been appointed to
    the area, who are supported by the two dedicated PSCO’s who are already
    engrained within the community. This is very important for engagement and will
    ensure that we understand the views of the community when making plans to
    resolve issues.

    Ashfield District Council have supported the NPT by
    giving us increased access to the Willetts Court community centre – meaning we
    can spend more time in the area. This will provide better engagement
    opportunities and ensure we are better established within the community.

    Policing in the area is being supported by wider
    Police resources including the force knife crime team
