On Monday Stoke-on-Trent City Council will focus all of it's energies on the Hoskins estate area of Tunstall in the latest in a series of monthly ‘respect’ days which run in neighbourhoods across the city that have higher than average crime and anti-social behaviour.
The days are an opportunity to listen to community concerns about their area and then deploy partner agency resources on a particular day to try to address those needs.
On Monday, the ‘respect’ day will include:
· Council cleansing teams out in force with five road sweepers.
· Council environmental crime unit officers addressing concerns around dog fouling and fly-tipping.
· Skips put out for residents to dispose of bulky household waste.
· Attendance by the ward councillors and local residents association.
· Police officer giving advice about crime reduction and dispensing crime prevention equipment.
· Fire and rescue service officers conducting home fire security checks.
· Pupils at local primary school St Mary’s, conducting a litter pick at 12.50pm.
