Policing Update

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

  • Police patrols in the Nacton area have increased with the aim of disrupting individuals concerned in crime and reducing Anti-Social behaviour. A multi-agency approach has been adopted with two dedicated Youth Support Workers engaging with young people in the area.
  • Operation Parkland has been successful in disrupting suspicious and Anti-Social behaviour. ‘Hot spots’ have been identified and targeted. This will continue until the end of September.
  • The annual knife crime/weapons amnesty Operation is running from the 18th to 24th of September. A yellow bin is located outside the CO-OP on Queens Way and another on Princes Street.

To read further information about policing changes, see the ‘A Local Police Service for Suffolk’s Future’ booklet, and for crime in your area, download the Safer Neighbourhood Team newsletter from the website.

You can report antisocial behaviour and nuisance in your neighbourhood online. Follow the link to our website where you can report a problem, find advice and access the Community Trigger.

Funding Requests

Margaret Catchpole Bowls Club Pavilion Extension

Funding of £1500.00 was given to the Margaret Catchpole Bowls Club towards the cost of redeveloping the Pavilion. Currently the Pavilion lacks modern amenities such as toilets, changing rooms and adequate kitchen facilities. By extending to add these facilities it will be able to host more matches, cater for more members and offer more to the local community.

Next Meeting

The next meeting in the South East is to be held on Wednesday 21st November 2018, 7pm – Red Arena, Ipswich Academy, Braziers Wood Road, Ipswich IP3 0SP.
