Update on last weekend's Operation Blitz activity

On Friday 1st November PCSO Crouch and PCSO Gell were out on operation blitz patrols to deter and detect any anti – social behaviour across the district.

Our evening started by visiting the town centre and helping reunite a distressed female with her husband after she became lost in the town whilst on holiday.

We later made our way to Shinewater, including attending ‘Beat youth club’, unfortunately we missed out on the bonfire and roasting marshmallows. We spoke to staff who told us they had a great evening where the parents joined in the fun and had experienced no issues there.

While in the area we headed to Shinewater Park, which was lit up with the flood lights, whilst here we conducted patrols, however, no-one was about, this could possibly be due to the cold and wet weather we have been having recently.

Our point of call was to visit the Hampden Park area, where there have been reports of damage to the Play Park and cafe. The park itself was peaceful, and the field was full of people enjoying the rugby match.

Following this the next patrol was over to the Old Town area. Firstly to Eldon Road church and then on to Victoria drive old bowls club. Both areas were checked, the church was in darkness and no persons were seen in the grounds of the bowls club.

Lastly, we headed into the town centre, to Commercial Road and The Beacon. We spoke to The Beacon security and staff at Cineworld who in the summer had been having a few issues with groups of youths, they had a busy evening but everyone was in good spirits.

We both then assisted our PC colleague with an incident, which brought us to the end of the blitz shift.

Finally, we did not receive any calls on the blitz phone.
