Abingdon Town neighbourhood
The following priorities have been identified by the community and the police:
- Anti-Social Behaviour: The NHPT in partnership with the local NAG continues to address ASB in all forms in the town. We are addressing the ongoing issue of young people gathering in the precinct after school, blocking pathways, cycling on pavements, littering and swearing in earshot of local shoppers. The NAG also plans to engage with the local schools to positively address this issue. Other ASB hotspots in the town are also being monitored including Peachcroft’s parks and the Grebe Close area of South Abingdon
- Shoplifting: Following a series of plain clothes operations over the winter, the Neighbourhood team is continuing to treat shopliftings as a priority and through the NAG is working closely with the local Chamber of Commerce. The team are also in the process of implementing a ShopWatch scheme in the town to tackle persistent offenders.
- Cycle Theft: Cycle thefts – particularly in the town centre area – remain a priority, despite a fall in offences in the first quarter of 2013. The team will be highlighting the risks and reminding people to lock and secure their bikes even if they are only leaving them for a short time.
These are being dealt with by your neighbourhood policing team in partnership with residents and other agencies. Progress will be reported in the Neighbourhood updates.
