Policing Update

The Ipswich East Safer Neighbourhood Team updated the Committee on policing priorities for the area:

  • Sgt Chris Chaplin reported on the changes to local policing in Ipswich. To read further information about policing changes, see the ‘A Local Police Service for Suffolk’s Future’ booklet.
  • Preventing and responding to incidents of antisocial behaviour remains the Team’s priority. Due to Operation Parkland over summer, the number of complaints has reduced by 30% compared to last year.
  • Operation Sceptre is a national initiative to reduce knife crime which Suffolk Police are supporting. There have been no knives found during searches for weapons in the North East area of Ipswich.

For the latest updates regarding crime in your area, download the Safer Neighbourhood Team newsletter from the website.

The next meeting in the North East is to be held on Thursday 15th November 2018, 7.30pm- Ransomes Sports Pavilion, Sidegate Avenue IP4 4JJ . A presentation will precede the Committee at 7pm.
