Northwest Area Safer Neighbourhoods Team

Safer Neighbourhoods information and update:

Safer Neighbourhoods are all about you having a dedicated local team making your area safer, cleaner and a more pleasant place to live.  It may be you are fed up with anti-social and nuisance behaviour, for example. Or perhaps you have concerns about graffiti or vandalism?  Whatever the problem, Safer Neighbourhoods give you the opportunity to set the agenda in your area and help implement lasting solutions.


At our last Safer Neighbourhood Meeting, on Wednesday 10th October 2012, we had no priorities / issues raised by members of the public for the local area. However, we continue to work towards reducing anti social behaviour with our ongoing Operation Pinamar Patrols.


Your next Safer Neighbourhood Meeting for the Northwest Area is:-

January 2013, date to be confirmed

Safer Neighbourhood meetings give you as members of the community an opportunity to set the agenda in your area and help implement lasting solutions.
