Report incidents of anti-social behaviour, residents urged
The multi-agency Hartlepool Community Safety Team is calling on residents of the town to report incidents of anti-social behaviour and says they do not need to suffer in silence.
To that end, the team which comprises staff from Hartlepool Borough Council, Cleveland Police and Cleveland Fire Brigade, is staging a series of drop-in events where security packs containing a TV simulator, light timers, window alarms, and a person attack alarm will be handed out.
These will take place at the following times and locations:
- Community Hub Central, York Road, Hartlepool – Monday 13th June, 10am-12noon.
- Burbank Community Centre – Wednesday 15th June, 10am-12pm. (A representative of Thirteen Group will also be present).
- Community Hub Central, York Road, Hartlepool – Wednesday 15th June, 5-7pm. (Entry to the building via side disabled access door).
All of the events are an opportunity for people to speak in confidence about issues affecting their neighbourhoods.
Phil Hepburn, Hartlepool Borough Council’s Community Safety Operations Manager, said: “If you are experiencing problems with anti-social behaviour please tell us about it. Come along to the drop-ins and talk to representatives of the Hartlepool Community safety Team in complete confidence. No appointment is needed.
“Anti-social behaviour can have a hugely detrimental effect on people’s lives, and it is important that we are told about it so that appropriate action can be taken.”
Anti-social behaviour can also be reported in the following ways:
- Call Cleveland Police (24 hours). Telephone 101 (non-emergency report/report after the event has occurred) or 999 (emergency report/crime in progress)
- Contact Hartlepool Community Safety Team (Monday-Thursday, 9am-5pm, Fridays 9am-4.30pm). Telephone (01429) 523100 or email firstname.lastname@example.org Alternatively, write to Hartlepool Community Safety Team, Hartlepool Police Station, Avenue Road, Hartlepool, TS24 8BB.
