People living in North and West Swindon are being urged to tell their local police about all the problems they face in their communities, so officers can respond to the issues.
Neighbourhood Policing Teams will be carrying out a Week of Action at a number of locations starting on Monday 26 November at Freshbrook Village Centre. The aim is to gather as much information as possible, and then tackle the anti-social behaviour and crimes which annoy and upset people in their day-to-day lives.
From vandalism, to drug dealing, gangs of noisy youths and inconsiderate drivers, Police Officers and Police Community Support Officers will be taking note of everyone’s concerns, and asking members of the public to draw up the priorities of what needs tackling, and how that should be done.
The police will be joined by specialists from Swindon Council working in partnership to ensure as much effort as possible is put in to changing communities for the better. Trading Standards, the Crime and Disorder Team, the Licensing Department and Housing Officers and Street Wardens are just some of the professionals who will be involved.

A mobile ‘police station’ will be touring shopping centres and clubs to allow people to have their say, and get advice on how they can make their homes and streets safer, cleaner and more community spirited. Climb aboard the police bus and tackle local officers about the issues that concern you on:
