Following recent incidents of anti-social and criminal behaviour, Knowsley’s Crime & Communities Team and key partners conducted their Walkabout Wednesday in the Parbrook Road area of Huyton.
During the walkabout the Crime and Communities Team and Knowsley’s policing officers issued letters of reassurance that resident concerns continue to be addressed. They also appealed for any information, reminding residents that no matter how small it may seem, all information is significant and can help to build better and safer communities.
If any residents do have any information or concerns they’d like to raise please report it to Merseyside Police via 101 or online here. However if there is anything you would like to discuss in confidence with our Crime and Communities Team please email Safer.Knowsley@knowsley.gov.uk
Despite the coronavirus pandemic, the team’s weekly walkabouts have continued. Ordinarily the team, ward councillors and partners would join and speak with residents, face-to-face. However, the team continue to visit areas in smaller numbers, while adhering to social distancing guidelines.
Cllr Shelley Powell, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods and Communities, said: “I want to reassure residents that tackling incidents of criminality and anti-social behaviour is of top priority to us. It’s fantastic to see our Crime and Communities Team and Knowsley’s policing team working hard to tackle these issues – regardless of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic we continue to face.”
This week’s successes for Knowsley’s Local Policing Team
Officers continue to patrol areas across the borough to engage with residents and businesses as well as disrupt and deter criminal and anti-social behaviour.
Successes this week include their participation in the County Lines week of action, which saw officers patrol Knowsley train stations to address issues of child criminal exploitation and drug trafficking. Two individual search warrants executed in Kirkby resulted in the recovery of Class A and B drugs, taking them off our street. A stolen car was also recovered on Waterpark Drive, Stockbridge Village, resulting in the arrest of one male.
