Local Policing Priorities

Local area: Ammanford Town, Pontamman & Betws

Date agreed: 14 October 2018

Action

Ammanford Neighbourhood Policing Team will be increasing high-visibility patrols in the Ammanford Town and surrounding areas with an aim to both deter and disrupt shoplifters along with offering advice and assistance to retailers on how to prevent themselves from becoming a victim of crime.

 

We will be working alongside businesses and partners to reduce instances of retail theft, thereby creating a safer retail environment for the public and minimising the financial impact on the shops and also to the police.

 

Should you witness or experience any incidents of this nature, we would encourage you to report this to us on the 101 Police Non Emergency number or 999 in an emergency.

Updates

03 February 2018

Ammanford Neighbourhood Policing team have been working in partnership with local retailers and have set up the Steal And Be Banned Scheme (S.A.B.B) here in Ammanford. Working alongside the retailers we have been targeting shoplifters and banning them from local stores. The purpose of the scheme is to make Ammanford a safer and more pleasurable experience to shop. 

 

 

Date agreed: 14 October 2018

Action

Ammanford Police have received numerous complaints that vehicles are continuously using the pedestrianised area of Quay Street, Lloyd Street & Hall Street within the town.

Delivery drivers are permitted to use these streets before 11am and after 4pm, but there is no vehicular access permitted between 11am and 4pm. Other vehicles are not permitted at any time.

Many drivers and vehicles have already been issued with warning notices however the problem is still being reported to police. We believe this is mainly a problem of drivers unaware of what the rules are.

Police will be issuing tickets in the near future and we hope that by educating drivers then this can be avoided.

Updates

18 May 2016

Vehicles are continuing to cause issues by parking illegally on Quay Street. Several warning notices have been issued to motorists who if they continue with their actions will receive Fixed Penalty Notices.

ACTIONS

  • High visible patrols in ASB ‘hotspots’

  • BOBB meeting

  • Engage with local licenced premises

  • Robust actions by Police

Ammanford operates a Behave or Be Banned (BOBB) scheme which can give individuals who are involved in an offence including violence, disorder or anti-social behaviour a ban from entering all 48 licenced premises enrolled on the Ammanford scheme. The offence would have to occur inside the licenced premise or after leaving one. The police work alongside local authorities, including licencing and operators of licenced premises, to ensure the scheme is run effectively. The scheme aims to reduce and deter alcohol related crime and antisocial behaviour. The Neighbourhood Policing Team and response officers will take appropriate actions against individuals who are caught acting in such a manner. 

Ammanford NPT will also target underage drinking. The town centre, Ammanford Park and other identified ‘hot spots’ will be patrolled by local officers who will use their powers to confiscate alcohol from persons under 18 in order to prevent ASB occurring. If ASB should occur, officers will deal with the individuals accordingly. Officers would also like to remind people that it is an offence to supply alcohol to any person under the age of 18 and those caught doing so will also be dealt with accordingly.

Updates

03 February 2018

ALCOHOL RELATED ASB

Ammanford NPT will continue to provide a high visible presence in the town centre, targeting licenced premises to reduce and deter alcohol related ASB and crime.

Ammanford officers will also be conducting spot checks on licenced premises to ensure they are complying with their licence conditions. Positive action will be taken by police, should they identify any breaches in the conditions.
