Active Priorities

  • 28 June 2017 - Increase in Begging in the Town Centre

    ​Over recent months there has been an increase in reports regarding aggressive begging in the Town Centre and of those persons fighting over prime locations.


This is what we have done

  • 28 June 2017 - Increase in Begging in the Town Centre

    ​We have identified that the vast majority of the Town Centre Beggars have homes and are supplementing their benefits by begging.

    We have signposted them to local charities that can assist them if they are struggling such as First Stop and The Food Bank and NECA if they are struggling with substance misuse issues.

    Persons who are aggressively begging and being abusive to members of the public or other beggars will be reported for any offences.

These are the policing priorities that local people have agreed with your policing team. You can have some influence on future policing priorities by attending your next PACT meeting.
