Anti-social behaviour

At our last All Residents’ Meeting the topic of anti-social behaviour came up. Several residents had concerns about young people behaving inappropriately in some of the public areas within the estate.

Some residents have also received a letter from the police about anti-social behaviour, but also carrying a JRHT logo. As far as we know, the letter only went to the flats, but we don’t know why that would be.

The DRA core team are currently looking into the situation. We have made contact with various local agencies with a view to working with then, and residents to develop a Derwenthorpe strategy.

Please let us know if you have a particular interest in working together to find practical ways to reduce anti-social behaviour on the estate.

A representative from JRHT, restorative justice (working in partnership with the police) and the police spent an evening in the park speaking to some young people. The police also took the opportunity to hand deliver some letters to the properties closest to the park. JRHT, the police, with the support of the restorative justice team are looking to hold a community based meeting where residents will be invited to share concerns and ask questions. We will also be looking at/discussing the positive aspects of living on the estate and how we should celebrate these. A date for the meeting is yet to be set as it will need to be after the 21 June/subject to us coming out of lockdown. A copy of the letter will be sent to every household in due course.

Hi As indicated at the DRA meeting, I consider that regardless of local action by volunteers etc that CCTV should be considered in parts of the development, especially around the Resource Centre which appears to be the hub for congregating youths. FYI – we did not receive the letter mentioned as being distributed to the flats. Kind regards Nick

Unless the CCTV is being watched in real time by a monitoring centre, it is very reactive and very much pointless unless something bad happens then someone will go through the footage. A monitoring centre would ideally dispatch a patrol when it noticed a potentially bad behaviour to prevent bad things from happening.
