There will be an increased police presence around the Flint Retail Park supporting the retailers and fast food chain to reduce anti-social behaviour.
Yesterday I talked about my desire to increase visibility and engagement within our communities. I am pleased to advise that yesterday was a productive and proactive day for our teams who were able to act upon some community feedback - thank you for the continued support. To provide feedback, several positive stop searches under the misuse of drugs act were conducted and drugs seized, a bike believed stolen was recovered and drivers arrested for drug/drink driving. The investigations will continue into all of these incidents.
You will start to see an increased police presence around the Flint retail park where we will be supporting the retailers and fast food chain to reduce anti-social behaviour. Our teams have obtained names for some of the individuals involved and we will be looking to speak to parents.
I am keen to continue the great partnership work from my previous role within our force Prevention Hub to get to the root cause of issues and supporting anyone with addiction. I will therefore be continuing discussions with partners to ensure any provisions provided within the local community dovetail into the work we will be doing locally.
To help us to achieve a greater understanding of the picture, please contact our team or report via Crime Stoppers – 0800 555 111, the work they do is amazing. Their website also covers ways for our children and young persons to report any concerns (Fearless):
Our Neighbourhood Policing team are continuing their engagement this week – come and say hello if you’re near to the Jade Jones Pavilion in Flint between 14:00 and 15:30 hours. The team will also be present at the 'Heating Hub' in Gwaenysgor around 10am this morning.
