St Peters priorities tackled
Police in Tameside have launched a new operation to tackle antisocial behaviour.
It sees neighbourhood officers from the Tameside North Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) patrolling areas the public have told them about in St Peters. They will be supported by Tameside Patrollers, Trading Standards, the Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service and social landlords New Charter, Ashton Pioneer Homes and Regenda to target issues such as nuisance behaviour, street drinking and licensees that breach their conditions.
Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) Robert Kelly said: “Antisocial behaviour is an issue that we take very seriously as it impacts on peoples’ lives. From the information we have received we will have extra patrols on the streets to directly target the issues that have been raised and we will help to find long term sustainable solutions”
The main streets the public want tackling are Birch Street, Chapel Street, Oxford Park, Katherine Street and Manchester Road. Officers will be using powers such as stop and search, issuing fixed penalty notices and giving people directions to leave the area.
PCSO Helen Brockett added: “We have been out in our communities speaking to people and leafleting areas to try and build up and much information as possible. Information is vital to our success so if people have any concerns it is important they tell us about them.”
To report your concerns please call the Tameside North NPT on 0161 856 9350 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
