- Reports of Anti Social Behaviour and Crime associated with alcohol is down, there has been no incidents directly linked to over indulgence during the six nations championship, however this Policing Priority will remain live for the remaining of the championship.
The Neighbourhood Policing Team has been significantly increasing High Visibility Patrols in and around licensed premises in the area to help prevent any likelihood of any disturbances. People found to be misbehaving in or around licensed premises will be reported to the Behave or Be Banned scheme.
Reducing violent crime continues to remain a priority for February. We will continue to carry out a licence premises and checks to deter unacceptable behaviour at an early stage. Positive action will be taken by police when dealing with reports of violent crime. Due to the six nations championship we will also be monitoring people who are at risk of domestic violence. Statistics in Wales show an increase in domestic violence at this time.
Everyone is encouraged to report such behaviour to show that the community will not tolerate any violence.
Garnant has seen an increase in crime during December. The Neighbourhood policing team responsible will significantly increase visible reassuring patrols specific to the Amman Valley area as part of their daily patrols. All licence premises were visited nightly and we are happy to report there is no direct link between the increase in crime and drinking in the pubs and clubs in the Amman Valley.
Illegal parking and motoring offences outside schools
Quarter Bach and Cwmamman areaThursday, February 13, 2014Thu 06 Mar 2014
We have had numerous complaints of unacceptable parking from parents of children from Ysgol y bedol and Ysgol Brynaman . The Neighbourhood policing Team will target other motoring offences such as seat belts, child restraint/car seats and the use of mobile phones while driving. We will be work closely with Carmarthenshire county council Civil Enforcement officers and Road safety unit to make sure that we safeguard the children in our communities. Your cooperation and continued support in relation to these matters will make this happen. If anyone has any other suggestions or ideas that can help us with this priority please contact us.
PCSO 8129 Nia Humphreys and Pc Steve Morris, in partnership with Carmarthenshire County Council Parking Enforcement officers, have patrolled the areas at the relevant times. Police 'No Waiting' Cones have been placed to assist with the issue.
There is a lot of ‘work in progress’ trying to look at ways of improving on the current problem. Some examples are that with the Council's Road Safety Team we hope to get the Children at the school to create posters warning parents of the dangers of parking illegally near to the school. Also we hope to get the School Council to help the Police Enforce parking offences by asking offenders to engage in a questionnaire with the children, questions will be tailored around ‘why are you putting our lives at risk’
If you have any ideas or suggestions that could help us with resolving this issue then please contact Pc Steve Morris 374, or PCSO Nia Humphreys on 101, Your assistance in any local matter is greatly appreciated.
