Since the last Community Council meeting, there was 1 recorded incident of vandalism in the Menstrie area which occurred between 29th August and 12th September, and consisted of damage to wall ornaments in Birch Grove. This remains undetected at this time with enquiries continuing.
Since the last meeting, there have been no recorded incidents of violence towards the public or police in the Menstrie area.
Since the last meeting, there have been no recorded incidents of acquisitive crime towards the public or police in the Menstrie area.
Police Scotland have been actively involved with Operation Monarda, a national campaign to target acquisitive doorstep crime. Police Scotland are working closely with Trading Standards and other partner agencies to educate the public, especially vulnerable elderly adults who may be easy targets for rogue traders. There have been a number of positive results for this, with a number of persons in the Clackmannanshire area being reported to the Procurator Fiscal for such crimes.
To date we have 2 detected road traffic offences for minor road traffic offences and the relevant ticket issued or report submitted.
These tickets have been speeding offences on the A91, going through Menstrie. Local officers are continuing to carry out Handheld Radar when possible to enforce the speed limits.
Other incidents of note
There was 1 detected drugs offence on the 9th October, whereby a vehicle was stopped on the A91 in Menstrie with the occupants and vehicles being searched under the relevant legislation and a small personal amount of cannabis was found within. A male and female both have been reported to the Procurator Fiscal.
Forth Valley Division of Police Scotland have been actively involved in Operation Core, which is a national initiative targeting crimes of violence, drugs and road traffic offences. This has seen a number of persons arrested for such offences throughout the Clackmannanshire area.
During this operation, numerous search warrants have been carried out on addresses for drugs. Road traffic officers have carried out vehicle checks notably with local officers carrying out a joint operation with VOSA and DVLA officers at Lornshill Academy, ensuring that all school buses were suitable for use and safe for the school children to travel in. This resulted in a number of defects being identified and buses put off the road until they were rectified.
