Active Priorities

  • 01 July 2016 - Anti Social Behaviour

    Due to the nature of a Town centre it attracts a lot of young people on evenings, particularly on Friday nights and weekends so we are out on patrol on these times to help prevent Anti social behaviour in our Town centre and the Riverside Park area.

This is what we have done

  • 26 April 2016 - Anti Social Behaviour

    Tuesday 26th April 2016

    Shoplifting ended at a decrease for the year of 43% which is a credit to all Retail stores, security staff and officers who took a positive approach when known offenders entered our town and stores where officers stopped and spoke to all potential offenders and Retail staff offered A meet and greet system whilst in the store to prevent shoplifting or even asked them to leave the store. We currently have reductions in the following for the Town centre and the Riverside Park area for, Anti-Social Behaviour, Taking from a motor vehicle and all types of Burglary. Our Snow Angels operation for Durham constabulary and Cestria Housing went well and salt bins were placed in most villages in the event of adverse weather. All staffing and volunteers were in place but luckily none were used this year but we were ready. The Activity Week is well under way and the dates are 15th to the 19th August 2016, 20,000 plus visitors are expected to the Market place in Chester-Le-Street, why not come down and support this great event. Watch out for the Advertising posters in June 2016. Please e-mail myself or Paul if you would like any further information about the Town centre or Riverside Park.

    ASB is very low and the young people who are causing the Town centre problems are reordered on CCTV and reported to the ASB officer to be dealt with by council warning letters. The town centre is quiet even though the school children are off school. The Activity week is keeping the children occupied this week and it is believed that over 5,000 people came down to the market place to enjoy over 40 Activities for all the family to enjoy.
     Shoplifting is very quiet and anyone caught shoplifting will have their photo placed on the Town centres Top 10 Shoplifting posters for each store which belongs to the Stopwatch scheme, which helps make the stores aware of potential shoplifters and also helps stores reduce retail theft in Chester-Le-Street

    The Activity week held in the Town centre went very well and attracted over 20,000 visitors to the town with Friday being overcast most of the day restricted many people from attending however the rain half off till 2.30pm before we had to close for the day and conclude the Activity week for another year.
    Thank you for all the resident groups, AAP, County councillors, County Durham community Foundation, Mr O'Brian, Coffee Bank and Brenda’s Cafe & Fish shop for their support in sponsorship for the event. I hope you all had a good summer holiday and everyone has enjoyed their time off work. Please E-mail me with any problems you may be having in your area.

    The Town centre is planning its Christmas lights switch on Thursday 1st December in the Market Place straight after school so check the council web site. The shop lifting plan is also in place and members of the public will see an increase of police in the town centre.
    Friday nights local police target all stores that sell Alcohol to deter under age people trying to get Alcohol bought for them. Local police will pour out any Alcohol taken from any under 18 person who has this in their possession.
    Keep lights on in your home when you are in or out and keep blinds closed at night to protect your property in these coming months. E mail Adrian or Paul if you need to speak to either of us on any police matters.
     
    Wednesday 15th February 2017
    The Town centre has stayed very quiet over the last few months but in view of the nights getting longer and even maybe warmer we are still on patrol in the town centre and even the Riverside to prevent any ASB or street drinking.
     
    Any information about incidents in your area please contact Adrian Richards or Paul Gooden.
