Tough Warning To Young Troublemakers In St Helier - Brake

February 8, 2005 12:01 AM

After receiving complaints from local residents about the anti-social behaviour on St Helier estate, local MP Tom Brake is calling on Sutton's top cop to review policing provision in the area.

Local residents have recently suffered vandalism, car theft, nuisance and burglary and they have sought help from Mr Brake.

Mr Brake has asked Robert Reed, the Borough's Senior Police Officer and John Deer, who is in charge of Neighbourhood Wardens, to join him at a meeting with residents of the St Helier estate.

Mr Brake said,

"St Helier residents are proud of their community and they have every right to be angry about the loutish behaviour of a few trouble-makers. I recently went on patrol with the local police in Roundshaw and it is obvious that more police officers, community support officers and neighbourhood wardens on patrol deter anti-social behaviour.

Liberal Democrats would recruit an extra 10,000 police officers and an extra 20,000 community support officers as it is their presence on the streets that will deter anti-social behaviour. This would be paid for by scrapping Government plans to introduce ID cards, a scheme likely to cost over 3 billion pounds."

    If you are a resident of the Carshalton and Wallington constituency and are writing to discuss any issue that Parliament or government is responsible for, you must provide your home address as MPs are generally only permitted to act on behalf of constituents.

    If you are not a constituent, you do not need to provide your address, but the matters we can deal with are more limited and you may wish to contact your local MP in the first instance.
