Residents experiencing incidents of anti-social behaviour during the lockdown are being urged to report them by the Merthyr Tydfil Community Safety Partnership.
“We meet on a monthly basis as part of a problem solving group,” said Paul Lewis, the Council’s Head of Protection and Safety Services. “During these meetings, hotspot locations/perpetrators and victims are identified and a multi-agency approach applied to resolving issues. Reporting of incidents is vital in ensuring we meet the needs of our communities.
“With the restrictions due COVID-19 continuing, we would ask residents to use any one of a number of options of reporting non-emergency incidents to South Wales Police.”
There are four ways of reporting ASB incidents:
- Report a crime/incident online
- Call the non-emergency number 101
- At a police station
- Email email@example.com
Mr Lewis emphasised that this process is for non-emergencies only. All emergencies or incidents that are considered to require an immediate response must be reported via 999.
When you make contact, you need to give details of what is happening, who is responsible, where it is happening, when it is happening and how are they carrying out the activity.
Thank you for your assistance.
