Council officers on the beat in local communities

'Summer Tour' of South Norfolk.

Staff from Broadland District and South Norfolk Councils recently joined Police Beat Managers on their 'Summer Tour' of South Norfolk.

During the two-week tour, the Councils’ Early-Intervention Anti-Social Behaviour Officers visited communities across the area and responded to issues people were experiencing. South Norfolk Council’s Chairman. Cllr James Easter, said:

“Our residents’ quality of life is paramount to us, so it’s important that we listen to our communities and get to grips with any anti-social behaviour early on before it escalates. This tour was a great opportunity for residents to chat with us and share any concerns they had. The Anti-Social Behaviour Officers picked up a number of issues and were able to deal with them quickly and efficiently.”

The Officers are part of a pilot scheme being trialled by Broadland District and South Norfolk Councils. So far, the trial has been working very well, with 90% of residents reporting positive feedback as a direct result of their intervention.
