Your current priorities for this neighbourhood


Targeting crime in Chapel and Chinley

Issue Date:
Issue was set on 06/02/2017
Actions to be taken are as follows:
  • Following a recent meeting with residents, we will continue to carry out targeted patrols in Chapel and Chinley to deter criminals and catch offenders in the act.
  • We will be monitoring crime reports in the area and will be acting accordingly. This will include carrying out increased and targeted patrols, offering security advice on a particular issue, and hosting events to help residents to boost security.
  • We will also be speaking to residents to help them to increase security of their home, vehicles and outbuildings to help them to better protect themselves from becoming a victim of crime.
  • We would encourage residents to remain vigilant and to call police should they see anything suspicious in their neighbourhood. This could help to stop a crime from taking place.

  • PC Graham Mason and PCSO Karen Green interacted with youngsters to deter them from ASB and to encourage them to take part in diversionary activities to prevent further nuisance behaviour.
  • Anyone who was caught taking part in nuisance behaviour were advised about how their actions affect others and how it could lead to further involvement from police and partners.
  • The policing team also worked closely with other local agencies to tackle the issues, including litter being left behind in and around the Memorial Park.
