Addressing anti-social behaviour in Charlton Kings

Addressing anti-social behaviour in Charlton Kings

In recent months, there has been a serious upsurge in anti-social behaviour around Church Piece and the Croft allotment site, which has destroyed property and seriously frightened and upset our more elderly residents. This recently escalated to damage in the cemetery and serious misbehaviour and abuse of parishioners actually inside St Mary's church.

Representatives of the Parish Council and Cheltenham Borough Counciils, Balcarras school, the police, St Mary's Church and the Kings Hall youth club met last week to develop ways of tackling it.

Discussion focused principally on the role of the youth club and ways in which they could be supported to develop further services to young people.

However, it was also agreed that we must collectively be better at reporting all incidents to the police while they are occurring, as police resources are allocated according to the number of incidents being reported .
You can ring 101, but the best way to report an incident that does not warrant a 999 call is to use the e-Form on the Constabulary website: https://www.gloucestershire.police.uk

At the top right of their home page is a link to Report a crime or incident. This automatically allocates an incident reference number and puts the details onto the controller's computer screen.

The Parish Council is committed to securing services for all residents, old and young, and we will continue to work with all parties to bring an end to this behaviour by a small number of our community, and to develop better services for our young people.
