PACT* Priorities for November and December 2012
Reduce the number of calls relating to anti-social behaviour involving youths in the areas of Ochil Road, Menstrie Place, Castle Road and Windsor Street, Menstrie during the evenings of most days.
We have received several complaints in the past 4 weeks, from different residents in Menstrie, regarding youths causing annoyance, vandalism and theft; and youths drinking. We have managed to identify the groups involved. There appear to be two groups; one predominantly males on bikes and the other a group of females.
* Police and Communities Together - ed.
Over the last month or so, since David and I identified the youths responsible for anti social behaviour or crime, [as a result] there have been no recorded crimes, which indicates these groups are responsible.
Due to identifying the female group, previously undetected crimes from October [which included, theft, homophobic breach of the peace and vandalism] were detected. Two female juveniles have been charged as a result.
There has also been a dramatic decline in relation to calls of anti-social behaviour. Although the issue has not been eradicated, both David and myself have noticed a big difference. We will continue to monitor this and show a high visibility presence.
David and I would also like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year.
