Update on last weekend's Operation Blitz activity

Operation Blitz – Saturday 10th August 2019

PCSO Gell and Slow were assigned to Blitz patrols on Saturday. Due to the strong winds and predicted storms, it was fairly quiet and not many people were out and about.

We patrolled the usual hotspot areas where we have received reports of anti – social behaviour. We began the evening in Victoria Drive, checking behind Cornwall Court where there have been complaints of people hanging around drinking.

We continued on to Royal Sovereign Crescent where there has been ongoing issues in the area. All was quiet and we patrolled this area several times throughout the evening, with no issues.

We were then called out to check the park in Palesgate Road, as a member of public had seen three young males pulling newly planted trees in the park. When we arrived, there was no one in the park and no damaged trees.

Other areas we targeted were Etchingham Road, Hampden Park, Milfoil Drive and Renfrew Court.

We kept a presence in the car park opposite Sovereign View, as there has been reported issues of groups congregating after 9pm and causing a nuisance. The car park was empty and we did not come across any groups of people gathering there.

Towards the end of our shift we were called to check a block of flats in Fife Court at the Hydeneye. Some youths were seen acting suspiciously and peering over a balcony of what was thought to be an empty flat. We did not find any youths and there were no empty flats, all are occupied in the block.
