Some policing good news in Surrey Heath

This is the Good News part of the Surrey Heath Neighbourhood Police Team Communique, October 2017/ Issue 16, circulated by Surrey Police Community Volunteer, David Howie.

    • 7 Wardle Close, Bagshot. This property closure has been extended until 8th January 2018. This was originally put in place to protect a vulnerable resident who was having his flat used by drug dealers / users and causing significant distress to local residents. The extension will allow partner agencies to safeguard further the vulnerable resident and for all his living needs to be considered.
    • Criminal Behaviour Order.  A Camberley dog owner has been charged by Surrey Heath Borough Council for a dog abatement offence due to her keeping dogs which continued to bark and upset local residents. As a result the court also issued a 5 year Criminal Behaviour Order preventing the female from owning, living or frequenting addresses that house dogs.
    • Lucas Green Road, West End.  Following a burglary in Lucas Green Road, the local police team have retrieved the belongings that were found by local residents in and around the area and given them back to their rightful owner, including items that were taken which belonged to the victim’s mother that could not be replaced.
    • Lorraine Road, Camberley.  It is good to know that the work we do with our partners to stop people causing misery to others really does work.  Our Anti-social Behaviour team attended Guildford Magistrates Court on Monday 9 October to apply for a discharge to a property closure that was granted on a flat in Lorraine Road, Camberley in May this year. This means that rather than waiting until November when the order expires, Accent Housing can now enter the property to carry out the necessary repairs and place a new tenant in the property a lot quicker.

The flat was originally closed down due to ongoing anti-social behaviour such as drug use and dealing. There was also a stream of undesirables visiting the property at all times of the day and intimidating and being abusive to other residents living in the block. The tenant was not capable of adhering to the terms of his tenancy and chose an anti-social lifestyle over the rights of his neighbours to enjoy their home environment.

Neighbourhood Sergeant Michael Knight is delighted with the outcome of the closure: “Since the property was closed in May, we haven’t received any calls about anti-social behaviour in this block and I believe this is a direct consequence of the closure order. Residents have told us that their children are sleeping properly now and are able to play outside and they’ve got their freedom back. Other residents have told us they feel much safer now, there’s no noise and it has changed their lives completely.  My team routinely patrol Lorraine Road and they’ve noticed a marked improvement in the area – there is far less foot traffic in the area now and the residents in the block of flats are happy and their lives have returned to normal. This is as a direct consequence of the closure order.  “I think this is a really good example of how we can work together with partners, in this case Accent Housing, to bring about a successful outcome for our residents.”
