Policing update

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

  • Operation Parkland has been successfully disrupting suspicious and ASB. ‘Hot spots’ have been identified and targeted. This has now concluded and is being evaluated.
  • Work to improve Grebe Close continues with Officers conducting a walk around with other partner agencies back on the 21st of August to look at ways of opening the area up and dealing with the ASB.
  • Suffolk Police launched a social media campaign encouraging residents to get in the habit of completing a #9PMRoutine.
  • SNT Officers and ASB Officers have been working to resolve the issue of ongoing ASB from a small group of youths in the Garrick Way area and urge people to keep on reporting the incidents.

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.
