Police update for June available

June’s monthly update for Downley and Disraeli is brought to you by PCSO C8841 Jennifer WEAVER. Your team: PC 586 Colin BEDFORD, PCSO C6651 David JONES, PC 6739 Craig DUNCAN and myself.

If you have not yet met us, we are hoping to have a stand at the Downley Day Event on Saturday 21st June. Neighbourhood Priorities Antisocial Behaviour- The team will be focusing on The Pastures Flats and Wyatt Close as there have been numerous calls of groups of people congregating in stairwells.

Parking- Kestrel Close/Pheasant Drive, Littleworth Road/Coates Lane and Kelvin Close/ Hughenden Avenue are junctions which have received parking warning letters, where the team will continue to monitor and warn residents of any obstructions. Speeding- Hithercroft Road, Coates Lane, The Pastures and Plomer Hill have all been highlighted as roads which attract speeding vehicles. We are working alongside the Parish Council who have obtained funding for a Vehicle Activated Sign (VAS) which will be used for traffic monitoring around Downley and Disraeli.

Antisocial Behaviour This month there have been complaints of ball games being played in a small green area amongst houses on The Pastures, close to Disraeli School.

This area is marked as a no ball games zone by Red Kite due to inconsiderate behaviour in previous years, we would like this to be respected by residents. There are also issues arising of young people gathering and being noisy into the early hours of the morning on The Pastures Service Road adjacent to Brindley Avenue, and in Wyatt Close. A dedicated Antisocial Behaviour car is on duty every night, available into the early hours of the morning.

This neighbourhood initiative allows for incidents like this to be attended and dealt with more effectively. Motorbikes: Summer is almost here and we have seen a gradual increase in reports of motorbikes and quad bikes driving around the area.

Most recently we have had reports of young children being driven on these bikes. This is not safe practice and we would like to identify these children. Criminal Damage This month there have been multiple incidents of criminal damage. An attempt to break into a vehicle occurred on Plomer Green Lane where the door handle was damaged.

Vehicles on Hughenden Avenue, The Pastures and Southfield Road have been keyed and windows broken retrospectively. Theft from Vehicles This month has seen an increase in thefts from vehicles. Number plates have been stolen off vehicles on Hughenden Road and The Pastures.

A vehicle on Brecon Way had items stolen from inside. Also, a vehicle on Ripley Close was subjected to a broken window and a search of the contents inside. A neighbourhood initiative known as Clear Car Campaign is currently ongoing, where vehicles found displaying valuable items will be reported to the owner to make them aware of the dangers of opportunist thieves.

If you have seen anything suspicious, we would like to know about it on 101. Burglary & Theft of Motor Vehicle This month has fortunately been free of burglaries and vehicle thefts. Have Your Say Meetings Have Your Say Meetings are opportunities for you to speak with members of your Neighbourhood Policing Team.
