Confidence in policing

You Said, We did, We Listened.

Confidence the police do a good job

Speeding and Antisocial use of vehicles

We will continue to monitor problems, using our Speed Gun and progressing and promoting the speed awareness DVD which is almost ready for launch. The Dispersal Order to the north of the ward will be a great tool for us over the summer in our open areas.

Burglaries trespassing on property and cold callers, matched with the need to increase security.

We Did

Burglary and Security

We will continue to target harden premises as part of our Operation Tizona and manage our known offenders around burglaries, we will be moving to a new set of You Saids soon.

Dispersal Order

Keep a look out for our dispersal order notices going up to the north side of the Coventry Road where we have a dispersal order notice starting on Monday 7th of July until New Years Eve, this will allow us to move on groups of youths and if they return to the area within a set time they will be liable for arrest, this should make South Yardley a better place to live this summer.

Op Tizona

We have the funding through for Op Tizona so its full steam ahead with making South Yardley a harder place to commit Burglary.

Operation Tizona

We have again secured funds through the Birmingham City Council Community Chest to run Operation Tizona, which helps to target vunerable properties making them more secure.
