The residents are being encouraged to lock their gates to prevent this nuisance, and a leaflet containing the beat teams mobile phone number has been distributed to residents for a quicker response to incidents.

Further update - We are still continuing to patrol the area extensively and are working with the Housing office to encourage people to lock their gates and also get the repairs done in a timely manner. This is a long process, and we are still receiving calls from a particular part of the block. However, the Housing office has been requested to raise the gate repair as a priority here as this will alleviate many of the current problems. Patrols still continue at this location and the reports have decreased greatly. The overall security of the location is something that is being addressed long term by housing.

Reducing drug and alcohol related anti-social behaviour in the street, and in communal housing areas, on Kingfisher Avenue, Sandpiper Ave, Dunlin Road, Kestral Close, and Farnham Street, from 10am to 1am, daily.PRIORITY CLOSED.

Officers have patrolled this area extensively to reduce the amount of anti-social behaviour related incidents and they have greatly decreased, with several properties being identified as problem hotspots. We have worked in conjunction with the local housing Office to get repairs completed where necessary, and also encourage residents to lock their gates at night to discourage outside people entering the stairwells and loitering. Letters were sent out on behalf of the Police and Housing to advise on this subject, and whilst we cannot rigidly enforce residents to close their gates, there has been a noticeable improvement. There have been no individuals identified as anti-social behaviour offenders; we will continue to monitor the situation and patrol the area on a regular basis. Residents were updated that the plan will be closed at a recent ward meeting, and were encouraged to report any further incidents via the Police or the local housing office

Reducing illegal and nuisance parking in the street behind the Merlyn Vaz Centre, between 8am and 6pm on weekdays.PRIORITY CLOSED.

Officers have actively enforced illegal parking around the Merlin Vaz Centre by issuing fixed penalty notices and patrolling the area at regular intervals. New posters have been erected which are more visible in an effort to increase motorist?s awareness before parking their vehicle. The consultation period for the introduction of double yellow lines has now ended and this will be a solution to tackling the long term problem of inconsiderate parking. Although this PSP is now closed, Officers continue to patrol the area on a regular basis.

Action dated: 05/05/2011

To reduce the weekly number of anti-social behaviour incidents on Bramall Road and Frewin Street by at least 50 % during the next three months.

We have identified those responsible for this behaviour and began compiling evidence to introduce control measures. We have set up a Neighbourhood Watch scheme in the area. We have started to help families who struggle to control their children, and have increased Police patrols in the area. We have worked with landlords who rent their houses to problem families, and worked with them to address residents' behaviour, as a result of which, some offenders/tenants have left the area. This strategy has resulted in an almost complete reduction in anti-social behaviour, and this priority is now being closed. However, we will continue to monitor the situation for the foreseeable future.

To reduce instances of illegal and nuisance parking behind the Merlyn Vaz centre during the week day office hours.

We have been trying to tackle and improve this problem for over 4 months now and have not seen any improvement in the situation. We have advised local businesses, been there when people are parking and given advice, but up posters and information and enforced parking violations. However, people continue to park inconsiderately and dangerously in this area and it was only last week when a fire-engine could not get to the other end of the road to deal with a fire. We urge people to think about where they are parking are looking to try and find a more permanent solution to this problems, possible in the way of double yellow lines.

To reduce the weekly number of anti-social behaviour incidents on Bramall Road and Frewin Street by at least 50% during the next three months.

We have identified those responsible for this behaviour and began compiling evidence to introduce control measures. We have set up a neighbourhood watch scheme in the area. We have started proceedings to help families who struggle to control their children and we have increased patrols in the area. In September there was an almost total reduction in the number of reported incidents in this area but from speaking to local residents it is clear the problem persists. A lot of the work instigated for this priority is still in its early stages so we are going to continue to do all we can to reduce the anti-social behaviour that is inflicted on residents and users of these streets.

Action dated: 10/11/2010

To engage in prevention and diversion initiatives to reduce reported anti-social behaviour across the ward over the summer period by 20%, compared to last year.

We created a number of diversionary activities for young people over the summer holidays including installing goal posts on Craven Park; a day of rugby at the Emerald Centre, and an evening with giant inflatable activities. We also conducted test purchasing visits to ensure young people couldnâ??t buy alcohol in the area; increased targeted ASB patrols in key areas and identified some of those responsible for anti-social behaviour. Combined, this led to a 19% reduction in ASB as compared to the summer holiday season in 2009.

You asked us to reduce instances of illegal and nuisance parking behind the Merlyn Vaz centre during week days office hours.

We have worked closely with the fire service and community wardens to put posters and information leaflets in the area to educate vehicle users about the problems they are causing. We have used our enforcement powers to prosecute those who park dangerously and inconsiderately where appropriate and have requested that the council consider increasing the use of double yellow lines in the area. Although we have seen considerable improvement in this area, this priority is being extended due to the transient nature of people that park in the area and other work yet to be completed.

To reduce drug and alcohol fuelled anti-social behaviour in the area of Kingfisher Avenue, Sandpiper Avenue, Dunlin Road, Kestral Close and Farnham Street.

Increasing patrols over key times and highlighting those areas which appeared to be being used for drinking and general anti-social behaviour (ASB). We have met with the housing Officer to discuss gating and to find out if there have been any recent reports from residents. We have now identified one problem area which we can now address, but we have had no recent reports relating to any ASB and will continue to monitor the situation.

To address instances of anti-social and intimidating behaviour by neighbours in Bale Road, Brackley Close and Thornville Close.

By attending schools and community events to educate young people about the impact anti-social behaviour has on a community and the consequences of being involved in it. We also worked with Trading Standards to conduct alcohol test purchase operations at local off-licences; worked with community groups to provide activities for young people; and implemented new systems to record and respond to anti-social behaviour problems and identified 'hot spots'.

To reduce vehicle crime, including the theft of, damage to and theft from motor vehicles, by raising awareness of vehicle security and crime prevention measures in the area of Holkham Avenue, Carpe Road and Tomlin Road.

By increasing patrols in key areas, identifying potential offenders and taking robust action. This has led to 14 people being arrested and a further two interviewed without arrest. There are two other people identified as suspects that will be arrested in future. These measures have led to a 16% decrease in reported vehicle crime and also a 25% increase in the detection of these crimes.

To address instances of anti-social and intimidating behaviour and noise by neighbours in Bale Road, Brackley Close and Thornville Close.

We have identified those individuals that we suspect are causing the most anti-social behaviour and have begun collating evidence to support measures against them. We have also attended schools to educate young people about the impact their actions have on the community; organised community events to clean up and reduce opportunities for anti-social behaviour in the area; in conjunction with housing officers issued six families with warnings relating to the anti-social behaviour of nine children; and introduced activities to occupy young people to prevent offending.

As our community consultations have indicated, anti-social behaviour is a major issue for the community and we will continue to focus our efforts in this area.

Action dated: 05/05/2010

To engage with the residents of Mornington Street, Parry Street, Percival Street and Harewood Street to raise awareness of home security and crime prevention measures and to extend the current Neighbourhood Watch schemes.

We have conducted regular patrols in the area, both highly visible in full uniform and plain clothes 'covert' operations. Leaflets have also been posted in the area highlighting issues relating to home security and crime prevention. The extension and creation of the Neighbourhood Watch schemes are still in the planning stage but this should develop over the coming months.

This request will continue to be addressed through local officers' daily duties but will no longer be a priority due to other requests for action and identified problem areas.

Issue dated: 01/02/2010

Action dated: 05/05/2010

To reduce instances of graffiti in alleyways on the Morton Estate which normally occur during the hours of darkness.

We have helped with the cleaning up of the affected areas; worked to identify those responsible for the graffiti; compiled a database of 'tags' to identify trends; and increased our patrols in the affected areas to deter further crime and catch offenders.

Due to the dramatic reduction in graffiti during this period this will be closed as a current priority but the neighbourhood team will continue to monitor this problem.

Action dated: 05/05/2010

Tackling anti-social behaviour in Charnwood Street, Leicester, from 5pm most evenings. Youths congregating in groups and playing football and engaging in anti-social behaviour which is intimidating and causing annoyance to other residents. Priority closed.

Some positive stops achieved in that a number of names of offenders have been gained and warning letters have been personally issued to the majority of persons involved. The trees have been cut in the play area and regular patrols with the headcam mean that the problems has decreased slightly. However, some reports of drug abuse coming through which need to be address by the beat team.

Further update - A Neighbourhood Watch Scheme is in the process of being set up and the number of calls have all but stopped regarding anti-social behaviour. Unfortunately this has displaced the problem elsewhere, but consultations are due to be completed and the priority will be closed.

To address anti-social behaviour committed by street drinkers using bad language, threatening and intimidating behaviour whilst congregating outside Ladbrooks Betting Shop, in Uppingham Road, Leicester between 12 noon and 10pm daily.Priority closed.

Following special attention and action by local officers, the PSP is to be taken to the JAG for consideration of closure. The circ's in relation to this PSP are that Uppingham Road bus stop: there are no plans to remove the bus stop at present due to funding issues and this not being normal practice to do so. The seats have been removed which the Transport Dept hope will provide more of a deterrent and stop the gathering. This is not an issue that the Police can resolve and whilst we will continue to patrol the area on a regular basis this PSP will now be closed.
