At this time of the year we are still very busy, however we are preparing for the better weather
and the issues that this can bring with street drinking and other alcohol related issues within
the town centre. We are trying to identify the possible local offenders at an early stage and
gather evidence on them which in turn will help us deal with them more quickly and to try and
limit their effect on the local communities.
74 fixed penalty notices issued for parking offences around the town centre and high street
14 offences of theft from shop reported Lowestoft town centre, suspects all dealt with.
4 incidents of reported begging, with 4 individuals being advised
3 incidents of street drinking where alcohol was disposed of.
Town centre PCSO continues to patrol the high street and town centre of Lowestoft working with
the shops and business premises as well as residents and local shoppers. the aim is to address
any issues at an early stage and try to make the town's shopping experience as pleasant as
possible. However,we do rely on members of the public to report any issues that may occur in the
area of Lowestoft town centre as soon as possible, these can then be addressed and the
appropriate resources put into place to deal with them. We would always encourage members of
the public and shop staff to come forward and discuss these issues with us. PCSO Soanes would
personally like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who has done this over the last few
months allowing us to deal with numerous issues before they have escalated.
The safer neighbourhood team have been working together to address the
ongoing issue of anti-social behaviour and criminal damage in the more
residential areas of Lowestoft. PCSOs and Police officers have been patrolling
the south Lowestoft area to not only be a visible reassurance but to work
covertly in identifying those that are responsible for the criminal damage.
Officers have been working closely with the community and would like to thank
residents for their support as our work continues to identify those responsible.
