Police have cracked down on anti social behaviour in parts of Norwich by stepping up patrols.

Since anti-social activities were made a neighbourhood priority, officers from the Earlham, Larkman and Marlpit Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) have stepped up their high visibility patrols in Stevenson Road and Beverley Road. They did this along with carrying out crime prevention surveys.

As a result the Safer Neighbourhood Action Panel (SNAP) agreed that appropriate action had been taken and the issue no longer needed to be dealt with as a priority.

At the meeting on April 14 the partnership agencies and local residents agreed that dog fouling on Bowthorpe Community Park was going to become a new priority for officers.

Dog walkers who are rude and aggressive to other members of the public and allow their pets to misuse the alley from Old School Close to Ivy Road will also be targeted.

The second new priority to be adopted by the partnership agencies was to clamp down on anti social behaviour where members of the community are constantly littering in the area.

The third new priority chosen was to continue focusing on anti social behaviour in the Cadge Road area.

Anyone can attend the next SNAP meeting on July 14 at the Baseline Centre in Knowland Grove, Norwich.
