Neighbourhood officers meet with Dogsthorpe residents

Alert message sent 18/10/2021 12:41:00

Information sent on behalf of Cambridgeshire Constabulary

Dear subscriber,

On Friday afternoon last week, Inspector Karl Secker and Sergeant Sarah Phillips, who are part of the neighbourhood policing team which covers Dogsthorpe and the Welland, were invited by Councillor Dennis Jones to meet with local residents, as well as councillors Katia Yurgutene and Ishfaq Hussain.

During the meeting, which enabled residents to voice their concerns about matters and listen to what the local policing team were doing or could do to support these concerns, the following issues were raised:
  • Speeding – in particular around Eastern Avenue, Chesnut Avenue, Newark Avenue and Sycamore Avenue
  • Drug dealing – in particular around Redmile Walk, Eye Road and Sherborne Road
  • Anti-social behaviour (ASB) including noise and intimidation, dangerous driving and motoring offences around the Sycamore Avenue area
  • Anti-social behaviour, criminal damage and trespass around Dorchester Crescent and Sherborne Road

Some other issues were raised, including parking outside the school, which are being taken forward by the local councillors as council-led issues to resolve.

Advice has been given to residents about the trespass issues and some prevention measures which can be put in place, as well as some suggestions the councillors will be putting forward to Peterborough City Council on behalf of residents.

Work is ongoing with the local neighbourhood policing team around the ASB in Sycamore Avenue, which we will endeavour to keep you updated on as things progress.

We also have a newly formed Neighbourhood Safer Speed Team who are a dedicated team specifically to focus on speeding across the county. The areas of concern have been passed to them. You can find out more about the team on our website here.

One key message from us to all residents is to report information to us. It was clear some residents felt fed-up and didn’t see any point in reporting information, however it is vital reporting happens – if we don’t know about an issue, we can’t do anything about it.

Often action can be ‘behind the scenes’ with work being done to obtain warrants, put in place things like Criminal Behaviour Orders and other measures under anti-social behaviour legislation. So please know that just because you might not see us as often as you would like, we do care and we are working hard to make all of our communities safer.

There are several ways in which you can contact us:

(Online – these are much quicker and easier alternatives to calling 101 and allows you to avoid our phone queues) (Telephone)
  • Call us on 101 to report information or report a crime after it has happened
  • Call 999 if a crime is in action or someone is in immediate danger

You can also use our ‘community concerns’ section on our website to let us know about what concerns you most where you live but when you do not need to report a crime. Just scroll to the bottom of this page here.

As well as receiving these updates, you can also find more information about day-to-day activity on the Policing Peterborough Facebook page and PboroCops Twitter account.

Kind regards,
