Working with partners to tackle anti-social parking outside school

November 01 2016

We continue to receive reports of traffic and parking issues close to Bishop Road Primary School. PCSO David Said is due to meet with school staff and Bristol City Council representatives this month to see how we can improve matters. If you drive to this or any other school in the area, please make sure you park safely and with consideration for other families and residents.

In Redland, we’ve seen a slight rise in the number of thefts from vehicles. Many are still being left unlocked – please don’t make it so easy for offenders.

We’re hoping to have more officers out on bikes soon, which have proved a huge hit in other areas of the city. Not only does it mean we can cover areas and routes not possible in a car, but we’re more accessible, too. It also means we’re doing our bit to help reduce the force’s carbon footprint.  

If you’re a cyclist yourself, ensure you’ve checked your lights are working and switched on. We’re beginning to notice a lot of people cycling on our roads without lights. It’s an offence for a reason – it’s very dangerous. 

Please remember that information from local people is what drives a good deal of our work. If you have suspicions about anything or anyone, let us know. You may be worried that someone is dealing drugs out of a property, or have spotted people going door to door trying to sell things to elderly or vulnerable people. There may be an unusual or suspicious vehicle parked up in your road, or you may have been approached by someone trying to sell what you think is stolen property. It doesn’t matter how small – your information could be the key to us stopping crime in your street.

You can report any of these things to us online by visiting the ‘contact us’ page of our website (www.avonandsomerset.police.uk). Alternatively, if you don’t want to speak to the police directly, you can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. They never ask for your name or trace your call.

 

Until next time,

 

Sergeant Adam Dolling
