Not In My Neighbourhood Week will address issues such as motor vehicle crime, burglary and firework safety.

The initiative will see officers from the council and local police working together to address concerns of local people.

Cllr Paul Fisher, lead member for community safety at the council, said, “We want to show people that we are working with the police to tackle the priorities that they have identified, such as car crime and theft.

“It’s also a chance for us to engage with people to help reduce antisocial behaviour that can have such a big impact on the quality of life of local residents.”

Acting superintendent Andy Morgan said, “We want the law-abiding majority to enjoy this autumn’s festivities without their entertainment being spoilt by a small number of troublemakers.

“There will be an increase in police activity to deter anti-social behaviour, disorder and crime during this busy time. All 20 Safer Neighbourhood Teams will have staff on duty to support a large-scale policing operation on the evening of 31st October.”
