Trafford Council team up with Stretford police in their fight against anti-social behaviour
12:01pm Friday 15th June 2012 in News
TRAFFORD Council has teamed up with Greater Manchester Police in order to reinforce its commitment to reducing anti-social behaviour across the borough.
The council’s Safer Communities Team is set to move to Stretford police station next Friday (June 22), allowing the council to work directly alongside their policing partners.
According to figures, Trafford currently has the lowest number of anti-social behaviour incidents in Greater Manchester.
Figures also show that there are 6,000 anti-social behaviour incidents than four years ago.
Executive Councillor Jonathan Coupe says the move will allow staff to better pool resources and knowledge for the benefit of local communities.
He said: “Within Trafford we have already benefited from close partnership working with the police and other agencies.
"This has not only been in our efforts to crack down on perpetrators of anti-social behaviour and identification of key problem areas, but also our support of vulnerable victims.”
GMP Chief Superintendent Mark Roberts said: “The reductions in crime and anti-social behaviour in Trafford in recent years have been quite remarkable and are built on the efforts of our local communities, the police, Trafford Council and other partner agencies.
“By co-locating the police, council and Trafford Housing Trust teams dedicated to reducing anti-social behaviour we will provide a joined up and comprehensive service to the people of Trafford.”
