Officers in Bridgend crack down on anti-social behaviour in Hendre area of Pencoed
Police in Bridgend, along with community partners, worked together recently to find out more about people’s opinion of anti-social behaviour (ASB) in the Hendre area of Pencoed.
On Friday 24th October, local officers and partners took to the streets and spoke with local residents and businesses to carry out an anti-social behaviour survey.
PS Mike Davies said: “It’s important for us to receive feedback from local residents so that we can target our patrols and shape our priorities accordingly”.
“The aim of the survey is to gain a better insight into people’s perceptions of ASB in the area and the issues that concern them.”
PS Davies added: “We are very grateful to our partners of South Wales Fire Service, Valleys to Coast Housing Association and the Pencoed Community Council for giving up their time to help us gather the information that we needed to better understand the needs of our residents”.
“More than 40 surveys were conducted during the 24th October, with local residents and shop keepers, which will help South Wales Police gain a better understanding of the concerns of the Hendre community, especially in connection to ASB issues. We will use the information gathered from the surveys to review our approach to ASB in the Hendre area and identify areas for improvement moving forward”.
