Update on last weekend's Operation Blitz activity

Op Blitz was conducted last weekend by PCSO Clarke and PCSO Raczynska.

The shift started with a reassurance visit to help address some issues residents had been experiencing with local youths in Hampden Park.

As a result we will be paying regular passing attention in Hampden Park which will be conducted by the dedicated PCSO’s for that area.

Our next visit was to Shinewater Park where there have been reports by residents of ongoing issues.

Whilst on patrols it was nice to see some teenager’s enjoying the park playing basketball. We engaged with a group by the Co-Op at Milfoil Drive, who were not causing any issues.

As the evening progressed we were joined by the rain as we continued our high visibility patrols across the Town.

We then received a phone call from a member of public reporting a group of around 14 – 15 youths congregating by the Enterprise Centre smoking cannabis.

We arrived at the location within 5 – 10 minutes and spoke to two independent groups of young people. One group was hanging around by the train station and the other at the back of the Enterprise Centre.

Although the groups were considerably large in number, the teenagers were perfectly polite and no smell of cannabis was detected.

We then moved on and liaised with security and customers at Mcdonalds in the town centre where there were no issues.

Finally, we visited several hotspots known for people and vehicles congregating and causing a nuisance, however, on this particular evening everyone seemed to be on their best behaviour.
