Safer Neighbourhood Teams work with local people and partners to identify, tackle and solve issues that matter to the community where you live.

Making neighbourhoods safer by cutting day to day crime and anti-social behaviour is at the heart of keeping people in West Mercia safe.

Unfortunately following an accident away from the work place I am currently unable to undertake patrol work. I expect to resume to full duties in the near future, in the meantime I am still dealing with issues occurring on Rural East.

No reports from within Bayston Hill regarding rogue scrap metal dealers helping themselves to items off driveways have slowed down giving rise to the belief they are visiting new areas. The following vehicles are of interest ,all registered to West Midlands area

1) White Ford Transit YU04 EVC

2) White Citroen Relay Van GX52 GXJ

3) White Ford Transit PK54 EVW

4) White Vauxhall Movano V829 HMS

5) White Ford Transit X307 NEG

Unlicensed Scrap Metal Collectors come under the remit of Shropshire Council, they issue the licences and are best placed to deal with licensing offences. A bonafide dealer cannot merely take items from off a driveway. They must speak to the resident and provide a written record as to what they are taking and from whom. Legitimate Scrap Metal Collectors must have a Shropshire Council issued Licence visible on the vehicle and be in possession of an Environment Agency issued Waste Carriers Licence. . Repeated warnings to residents have gone unheeded and until such time people refrain from leaving items outside for collection the problem will persist. A visit to Bayston Hill by Police and Shropshire Council Officials identified 22 properties whereby items had been left outside the front of properties seemingly for collection.

 

The Theft figures are high however 30/34 are Make off W/O payments at Esso Garage, Dobbies Island

 

Dobbies Island was prevalent with the Traffic Lights being out of service on 5 separate occasions, 7 RTCs recorded during this time although none whilst lights were not operating and on 2 days the egress road was gridlocked with motorists taking several hours to clear the location.

NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH

 

 

 

 

The aim of a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme is to bring together like minded neighbours who wish to create a strong friendly community where crime and anti-social behaviour is less likely to occur.

 

By being a member of a Watch scheme you will be a valued link between your community and the Police.

 

There is no lower or higher limit on how many members there can be in a scheme.

 

The police will not run the scheme, as to how that is done is up to the members, however the Police will provide help and advice.

 

You may decide to have regular meetings of your members; if so Police staff will do all they can to attend and support those meetings if requested.

 

Being a coordinator or a member can take as much or as little time as you wish; all we ask is that if you have a concern or become aware of any unusual or suspicious activity you report it to Police via the 101 number.

 

It has been proved that where there is a NHW scheme in place, crime and ASB decreases and the area becomes a safer and more pleasant place in which to live.

 

NHW members are valued by the Police for the time and work they do to lessen crime and help keep Shropshire a low crime area.
