Community Policing Report, 14/04/15 - 12/05/15
I am Police Constable 1014 Roderick Mackenzie, one of community constables with
the responsibility for Ward 1 - Clackmannanshire West, Menstrie and Tullibody -
and I am stationed at Alloa Police Office. I have 6 months police service and
can be contacted by calling 101 or by the following email address:
Since the last meeting, we have 0 recorded crimes linked with anti-social behaviour.
Since the last meeting, we have 0 recorded crimes relating to vandalism.
It is to be noted that one of our community constables (PC 492 Carrie) has been working in partnership with a schools based officer and they have been conducting a crime review of vandalisms in the Menstrie and Alva area from August to September 2014. As a result, 7 local youths have been charged with over 10 offences and enquiries are still ongoing.
Since the last meeting, we have 0 recorded crimes relating to violence.
We have 2 undetected crimes relating to theft which are as follows:-
- Overnight on 15th to 16th April 2015, solar lights were taken from the front garden of a residential dwelling in Ochil Road, Menstrie. This incident was highlighted on police social media at the time and if you have any further information regarding the theft of these solar lights please contact the police on 101 (non-emergency number).
- Overnight on 15th to 16th April 2015, two unsecured children's pedal cycles were taken from within a garden at Dumyat Road, Menstrie.
I would like to remind residents to ensure that they secure their property and ensure nothing is left lying out unattended or clearly visible for opportunists to take.
To date we have 2 detected road traffic offences. One is for defective vehicle parts and the other for a speeding violation. The relevant tickets were issued or report submitted.
The Scottish Government's inaugural Road Safety Week ran from 4th to 10th May 2015 and Police Scotland were involved in the multi-agency campaign. The main policing aims were to influence road user behaviour, reduce casualties and keep people safe. Police Scotland focused on child pedestrians, cyclists and safety when travelling in the car.
Numerous motorists in the Clackmannanshire area have been stopped and all have been given advice in relation to their driving manner.
I would again like to encourage anyone with any information regarding persons who drink and drive or use drugs and drive to contact us on 101. The information will be dealt with in the strictest of confidence and will assist in making your community and roads safer.
Other incidents of note
I think that it is worth highlighting that the level of crime in the Menstrie community is relatively low and Menstrie remains a safe community to live in. I would like to add that the crime incidents this month have dropped to 4 reported incidents from the previous 14 from the last community meeting on the 14th April 2015.
