- Priority:Anti-social behaviour in the area of Soren Larsen way and Garlandstone Walk
Anti-social behaviour in the area of Soren Larsen Way and Garlandstone Walk did reduce during the colder months but has increased recently. The majority of complaints still refer to youths hanging round and causing problems for residents.
More recently a moped is being used by youths in the area and using the canal tow path as a race track. We aim to deter the amount of anti-social behaviour in the area by conducting patrols. We will also involve the local community, housing associations and private landlords and traffic officers to combat these issues.
- You Said We Did:A Public consultation took place on 13th September at Sainsburys, St Annes way, where around 45 members of the community attended a meeting to discuss the ASB in the area.Also present were Cllr Paul Toleman and Project solace. The aim was to discuss the community feeling in relation to a dispersal order for the area and how also to establish a residents association to work with the community and other agencies in an effort to prevent this issue from reoccurring in the future.The decision was made that a dispersal order was necessary as local residents have had enough of this behaviour.The Dispersal order was granted and runs from 1st December 2013 to 31st May 2014

Retail Crime Crackdown
In response to retail crime within the City centre, there will be officers operating throughout the shops and stores within the City, each day. This will involve plain clothes Police officers.
So far in the first 3 days this has led to 8 arrests. The clear message to shoplifters is that this will no longer be tolerated within the City and we are looking at the long term banning of offenders from the City centre.
There is currently a Dispersal order in place from the 1st December 2013 to the 31st May 2014 for Soren Larsen Way and the surrounding area. The order and map area can be found on the link below and covers the Hempsted estates that run parallel to the Canal . Leaflets have been mailed out to residents within the zone. These leaflets explained the order further and they have also reinforced the previous leaflets and explanations. Rest assured it’s a tool to help local residents reduce anti social behaviour and not to cause problems for children playing, without causing a nuisance, in the streets or play parks.

Keeping your bicycle safe & secure
Over the past 12 months a number of bikes have been stolen from unsecured sheds, bike racks and from outside of a number of premises.
We are working with various agencies and businesses to assist with keeping bicycles secure; however please help us to keep your bicycles safe and out of the hands of thieves.

To help people secure their bicycle, in a bid to reduce the number of bikes that have been stolen across the City, Gloucester Police are selling bicycle alarm D locks from the Gloucester Police main reception at Bearlands on Longsmith Street. These cost £10 and are an extremely effective lock for deterring bike thieves as they emit a high pitched alarm when tampered with. There is also another variation available which is not alarmed at a cost of £15.
