Central Milton Keynes and Campbell Park neighbourhood
Local priorities - 'You said, We did'
The following priorities have been identified by the community and the police:
You said: Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) around Lloyds Court
The neighbourhood team continue to address this problem due to alcohol
Due to robust patrols from the neighbourhood and enforcement of the no drinking zone policy we have seen a rapid decrease in the ASB that was experienced at Lloyds court. The team will continue to build this area into our patrols during the summer months to prevent any further ASB activity
You said: Bicycle thefts in the city centre
Bike thefts continue to be a problem with the city centre and remain a neighbourhood priority.
The neighbourhood team is continuing regular patrols including regular plain clothed patrols in and around the bike racks. The team have recently taken part in a bike marking event at INTU. It is hoped that there will be further bike marking events through the summer months. Members of the public can also register their bikes at bikeregister.com. We ask members of the public to ensure that they leave their bike secured with a good quality “D” lock that cannot be cut through easily with bolt croppers or similar tools and that members of the public make a note of their frame number which can usually be found underneath the crank or pedal block of the bike. If members of the public notice any suspicious behaviour around the bicycle racks this should be reported to the Police.
You said: Anti-social behaviour (ASB) linked to the homeless
The neighbourhood team continue to address this problem with ongoing identified areas including the front of the railway station and the underpasses in around Central Milton Keynes where there has been an increase in unattended bedding and personal belongings of homeless persons. The neighbourhood team have also been made aware that there has been an increase in homeless persons gaining access to residential buildings within the Hub area
The neighbourhood team would ask members of the public to report any ASB or begging on 101 so that it can be dealt with robustly. Begging is a criminal offence. We would ask that members of the public wishing to give money to street beggars or the homeless community would donate money to one of the local homeless charities or shelters instead.The neighbourhood team continue to engage with the homeless community, and recently undertook a joint homeless count working in conjunction with partner agencies. This was a very successful day and we along with partner agencies managed to engage and signpost 17 members of the homeless community
These are being dealt with by your neighbourhood policing team in partnership with residents and other agencies. Progress will be reported in the Neighbourhood updates.
