This is the first such feedback and it concerns anti social behaviour.
Those who attended the meeting said that there was a lack of information about who to report anti social behaviour to. Should it be reported to the Police? Walsall Council? Or someone else?
There are a range of places you might like to try reporting anti social behaviour to before escalating it to the police:
If you are a tenant of one of the Housing Associations which operate in the West Locality (Willenhall/Darlaston/Bentley), you should initially report matters to your landlord:-
Private sector residents can report matters directly to Walsall Council’s Anti-Social Behaviour Unit: Telephone (01922) 653060 or Email firstname.lastname@example.org It may be possible that one of the following council departments can assist in the first instance:
If you have an ongoing Policing issue affecting you or your area, a report should be made to the Neighbourhood Police Team using 101 or Live Chat https://www.west-midlands.police.uk/contact-us If your problem is an emergency, an immediate call to 999 would be appropriate.
In addition we actively encourage you all to sign up to West Midlands Now (WMNow). WMNow is a Free Community messaging system from West Midlands Police.
West Midlands Police can always use an extra pair of eyes and ears in our neighbourhoods. They are encouraging local people to join StreetWatch (West Midlands Police):
Hope you have found this information helpful. Further up-dates will be provided on a regular basis culminating in another Community Conversation meeting during March 2020Leave a comment
