Current Crime Patterns

Friary Park Estate - The team along with Catalyst housing are working towards
Evictions and ASBOS to prevent further Anti Social Behaviour and drug activity on
the estate. The team have recently made arrests on the estate in order to enforce the
dispersal zone. Arrests were also made for drug offences. A problematic family have
also been moved from the estate and out of the borough.

Horn Lane / Emanuel Avenue: Street drinking is taking place in this area, ASBOs /
drinking orders are being sought to deal with these individuals. Please call 101 to
report Anti Social Behaviour due to these street drinkers.

Burglary - There has been a decrease in burglaries on the ward with no apparent ‘hot
spot ‘at the moment. This is believed to be due to arrests of two prolific burglars in
the area. Although there has been a decrease in burglary, there are still some being
reported it seems these are a result of windows are being left open and back doors
not being locked in the hot weather. Please make sure you are securing your homes
before you leave them as there are some burglaries still taking place.
