·         A lot of work had taken place to address issues of youth anti-social behaviour in the locality which had involved taking offenders home and speaking to their parents.

·         There had been a significant reduction in the number of burglaries in the area following intensive policing activity including the use of plain clothed officers.  Work in this area had been made more complex as it had not been possible to identify any location-specific trends.

·         Social media can give the impression that criminality was more widespread than it actually was.

·         Operation Treacle, that aimed to tackle anti-social behaviour up to and during Halloween and Bonfire night celebrations, was shortly due to commence.

·         It was commented that there had been difficulties in securing police attendance during recent traveller incursions in the Cheadle Hulme area that had resulted in additional delays in moving them on from the site.

 

RESOLVED – That Sergeant Platt be thanked for his attendance.
