Update from Police Sergeant Paula McDowell

The Parish Council were delighted to welcome our local Police Sergeant Paula McDowell to their September meeting.  Residents have been concerned about recent anti-social behaviour, in particular on the Village Green late at night.  Sergeant McDowell said that crime is generally very low in Dickens Heath – it is mainly car thefts, with Land Rovers a particular target, and the occasional house break-in.  She was not aware of anti-social behaviour on the Village Green.  She therefore encouraged all residents to log any ASB problems – via the on-line chat or by ringing 101.  She emphasized that the Police can only do something if they are aware of the problem, and logs will be brought to the attention of her team.  Instances of vandalism, underage drinking, potential drug taking and ASB should all be logged – to inform the Police of low level problems before they escalate.  She added that noise is not a police issue.
