The last month has been a busy time for Grange with an influx of people visiting the nearby attractions at Cartmel Races, Windermere Air Show, Cartmel Show and The Flookburgh Steam Gathering. All the events were well attended with increased attendances, due to the recent spell of good weather.
At the Neighbourhood Forum on the 14th June, 2011 you said that your community priority for the local policing team was litter, underage drinking and graffiti on the promenade at Grange-Over-Sands.
This is your community priority that local people in your area have agreed with the Neighbourhood Police. You can influence priorities by attending your next local meeting and informing your NPT what crimes / problems need clearing up in your area.
The Basic Command Unit (BCU) Priorities are anti-social behaviour, tackling violence, illicit drug supply and tackling dwelling burglary.
It is again pleasing to report that recent anti-social behaviour figures in Grange between June – July 2011 compared to the same period the previous year show a reduction of 25.9%
We will continue to consult and work with Grange Town Council, SLDC and Continental Landscapes. We will regularly patrol the promenade in the evening and after dark, and will continue to take positive action against anyone committing nuisance or offences on the promenade.
Over the past 4 weeks there have been 57 calls for service to the Grange area; only 7 of these calls have been for anti-social behaviour. The areas in question for anti-social behaviour appear to be the rear of the residential home on Main Street, Graythwaite Manor on Fernhill Road, Hampsfell Road Car Park and the bandstand on the esplanade.
We will continue to give these areas attention and respectfully request that you continue to report all incidents to us on 08453300247
Other reported crimes include the theft of a motor vehicle later found abandoned, theft from a local garage, theft of number plates from a vehicle and two attempt burglaries at Barclays Bank and Co-Op Travel Care on Kents Bank Road. No entry was gained to either of the premises.
As a result of these attempt burglaries both high visibility patrols and covert patrols will be monitoring the area as part of “Operation Trice”.
Anyone with any information regarding the above incidents please don’t hesitate to call. Again the number is 08453300247
Please remember you do not have to give your details when reporting an incident; you can remain anonymous if you so wish.
Unfortunately despite PCSO Howard Firths recent attendance at the bandstand with Trading Standards, informing people of ongoing Scams we are still receiving reports from persons being caught out. Please remember the following “If it sounds too good to be true it usually is!!!”.
On the 9th July, 2011 we held an online meeting. For over 2 hours people logged in to ask questions about numerous topics including:-
How we are managing our reduced budget, Police priorities in the area, anti-social behaviour, parking and speeding issues and the arrest of a man for possession of illegal poisons and killing a Red Kite.
Inspector Kevin Spedding, Sgt Ken Jewell and Sgt Rupert Johnston were online to reply to the posts. The majority of people participating thought police visibility was better now then previously.
Your next online meeting will be on Tuesday 16th August, 2011 from 17.00hrs – 19.00hrs Just log into www.cumbria.police.uk/ul
Finally although, you live in one of the lowest areas for reported crime in the country we still advise everyone to be vigilant. Please remember to keep your homes, vehicles, garages and outbuildings secure at all times.
