Councillor Phil Bateman said today ” Here are the Wednesfield Police Team Priorities, as set at the last Police Meeting in January…..I thought the constituents of Wednesfield North would appreciate sight of them. They are available in the monthly report the Police team make public.”
ASB Griffiths Drive Bottom Shops
Members of the community have expressed concerns around general ASB at the bottoms shops and on occa-sion at the top shops on Griffiths Drive, Ashmore Park. The issues involve groups of school age children hanging around the shops and sometimes causing nuisance to shoppers and staff by playing football, messing around directly outside certain businesses, being disruptive in the library and generally causing annoyance. Other re-ports involve older youths in the evenings using the shops walkway to shelter, smoking cannabis and making a noise. The team routinely patrol the shops and engage with any persons of concern in order to prevent and de-ter ASB
The community expressed on going concerns over speeding cars across the neighbourhood in residential areas where vehicles are exceeding the speed limits and causing danger to the community. Numerous roads are hi-lighted and include Kitchen Lane, Linthouse lane, Griffiths Drive, Broad Lane North and South and Peacock Lane.
Ashmore Park, Park Drug taking and ASB
The community have expressed concerns about suspected drug dealing in the park and general ASB there, in-cluding rubbish and fly tipping. Cars containing individuals smoking cannabis are known to park up by the bike track and the car park can be accessed via Park Way. The team routinely patrol the park and deal with any crim-inal offences.
