Antisocial Behaviour Awareness Week
Monday 19 July – Friday 23 July
This week sees the launch of the first ever Antisocial Behaviour Awareness Week and we are extremely proud to be supporting.
The purpose of the week is to take a stand against ASB to make our communities a safer place to live.
Our teams work closely with partner agencies throughout the borough to achieve great results which keep our customers safe.
We are delighted to be sharing the following recent success stories we have accomplished by working together.
Our Neighbourhood Officer Liz has been working closely with police colleagues to visit communities across Solihull where high levels of crime have been reported or residents have told us they do not feel safe.
We have been speak regularly with residents in the community to offer advice and reassurance to help build their confidence. This has encouraged residents to form their own residents’ group to help tackle emerging antisocial behaviour.
Our Neighbourhood team has been working closely with the police and our residents to help tackle off-road bikes in Solihull.
We recently received a report from a resident about off-road bikes which were causing a nuisance to the community.
Through partnership working the police were able to locate the illegal bikes and remove them from the street as a result.
If you would like to report off-road bikes to us, please use this form.
Neighbourhood Officer Rory spent some time out on the patch working alongside the Chelmsley Wood Police team as part of the ‘Easy Street’ initiative.
This is a burglary reduction initiative, involving door to door visits and offering residents crime prevention advice. Rory was able to speak with the community and pick up any concerns they had around antisocial behaviour.
We recently supported ‘Impact Week’ where we worked with other agencies to deliver important messages to our communities.
One of the key themes of this week was on how to make local parks safer for families to enjoy.
We spent a lot of time door-knocking with the police to discover any community safety concerns, offer advice and identify people who want to get more involved with us.
