On 1 April there will be new spring patrol hours for the Street Team who will patrol longer into the evening until 10:00 pm from Monday to Saturday, following requests from our businesses. Now that the clocks have gone forward, there are more people around in the evening taking advantage of the longer days. Their summer patrol timetable, which starts on 1 May, sees them working until midnight six nights a week as in previous years.
To contact one of the Street Team to raise a concern please call 07825 750777.
Remember, in an emergency or if a crime is in progress, dial 999.
If you encounter persistent begging, experience dumped waste outside your premises, are concerned about rickshaws, disturbed by noise, are affected by shop-lifting or want to report a vulnerable rough sleeper the team will be able to assist you.
