I am Police Constable 943 Kerrie Graham, one of five Community Policing Officers covering Clacks West Ward.
There are two Community Policing Sergeants (Graham Cadden & Catherine
Sharkey) and they are all stationed at Alloa Police Office.
If you require to make contact direct please contact the Community Sergeant on
telephone 101 or by email at:
In total there have been 2 crime files raised for the last month: 1 undetected crime and 1 detected crime for the Menstrie area.
Since the last meeting, we have had no crimes recorded of an anti-social nature. We are aware of reports of youths congregating within the Main Street area. This appears to be an ongoing issue throughout Clackmannanshire and community officers are dedicated to weekend patrols of known areas.
We would ask that residents contact 101 with any complaints regarding anti-social behaviour.
Since the last meeting we have had no complaints of vandalism reported to police.
In the last month we have 1 crime reported in relation to violence which remains undetected at this time. This refers to a non-serious assault which occurred on May 28th 2015 in the area of The Charrier. From looking at the report it appears all lines of enquiry have been carried out and this remains undetected at this time.
Since the last meeting we have had 0 crimes of dishonesty reported to police.
We have had 5 recorded Road Traffic Offences since the last meeting. Of these, 4 relate to speeding, 2 of which were detected on Tullibody Road and 2 detected on Menstrie Brae. The relevant tickets were issued to each of these offenders.
1 Road Traffic Offence related to a registration plate not being displayed in the prescribed font. This resulted in a V-rec [Vehicle Defect Rectification Notice - ed.] being issued, which gives the driver 21 days to rectify the fault. This was complied with within the given time.
The summer Drink Drive campaign 2015 has been launched which seeks to remind drivers [of] the importance of not getting behind the wheel when under the influence of alcohol. Data released shows that there was a 17% reduction in drink driving offences from January-March 2015 compared to the same time period in 2014. These figures follow the introduction of the new drink driving limit on December 5th 2014. Officers will be stopping drivers when appropriate over the summer months and efforts so far have proved successful not only in detecting drivers under the influence but also highlighting the number of drivers who are adhering to drink driving limits.
