Good Afternoon All

I wanted to update you on some of the recent police actions undertaken within the Westcotes. This list is of some of the key matters following complaints from the local community, but it doesn't obviously cover everything due to the sensitivity of certain police matters.

- A Possession Order (Eviction) was granted by Civil Court regarding an Address on ANDREWES STREET. This was part of our joint working with the City Councils ASB Team (CRASBU) due to ongoing reports of Anti Social Behaviour, Drug misuse & Violent Crime. The address has now been secured and the problem tenant removed.

- A Drug Search warrant was completed at a flat on BRAUNSTONE GATE. x2 males were arrested on suspicion of Possession with Intent to Supply Drugs. Additionally Drugs & weapons were recovered. This investigation is ongoing.

- On x2 separate occasions recently arrests have been made on WALTON ST for drug dealing offences in the street. These matters remain under investigation, but drugs and cash have been seized.

- In late 2021 there were several theft from vehicles in the area and following several enquiries x3 individuals were arrested and charged for breaking into cars. This crime has massively reduced since then, but a few are still occurring. We strongly advise vehicle owners not to leave items in the vehicle and 100% make sure the car is locked.

- A increased police foot patrol presence took place over December, in the night time, as part of the 'Safer Streets' scheme whereby officers were in key areas such as RALLY PARK, BEDE PARK & GREAT CENTRAL WAY etc.

Please continue to report local issues to us, as we will take action to resolve matters that have a negative impact on our community.

Thank you
