INCONSIDERATE parking and anti-social behaviour are among the new priorities for the Wisbech and district policing team.

The decision follows the team's panel meeting last week, during which the priorities for the next three months were set as:

Inconsiderate parking outside Elm Primary School and Friday Bridge Primary School.

Anti-social behaviour in Troughton Way, Leverington, and Goodens Lane, Newton.

Organise an engagement activity to help to protect the vulnerable.

Community Engagement and Crime Reduction Manager Trevor Bracken said: "Residents and business representatives in the Wisbech area have had their opportunity to get involved in the decisions surrounding the policing of their area.

"The new priorities will see the team continue to carry out work to target inconsiderate parking and anti-social behaviour.

"We want to make the Wisbech and its surrounding villages safer places for residents and visitors alike."

At the previous meeting three months ago the following priorities were set and action taken:

Inconsiderate parking: patrols in the area, words of advice given to motorists and school children, tickets issued.

Anti-social behaviour in Peartree Way, Elm: patrols in the area.

Reassurance to elderly and vulnerable residents: increased patrols, victims of crime visited and contacted by phone, SmartWater and shed alarms issued to residents, crime prevention advice given to senior citizens and school children.

Mr Bracken added: "We have had a number of successes over the past three months with regards to tackling crime and disorder in the Wisbech area.

"This was the result of partnership work, specialist operations and patrols to ensure those who were committing criminal offences were targeted."

The Wisbech and district team covers the market town and surrounding villages.
