THREE new priorities have been set for Southwold and Halesworth Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) following feedback from local residents and councillors.

The new priorities aim to address anti-social behaviour being caused at the Skateboard Park in Halesworth; promoting safe drinking and behaviour in Southwold and Halesworth in the run up to Christmas and New Year; and anti-social behaviour and compliance of licensing laws at the White Swan Public House in Halesworth.

Sergeant Nigel Tompsett from Southwold and Halesworth SNT said: “Our tasking meetings are held monthly and are open to the public. Local SNT officers and partner agencies attend these meetings, which are a good way for residents to raise any issues of local concern. Once concerns have been raised the partnership agencies then decide on the three main priorities and how they will tackle them together.”

The next SNT tasking meeting will be held on Wednesday, December 2 at Halesworth Council Chambers in London Road, Halesworth at 2.30pm.

If you are unable to make this meeting or would like to contact the team email southwoldhalesworth.snt@suffolk.pnn.police.uk or write to Southwold and Halesworth SNT at Southwold Police Station, Station Road, Southwold, IP18 6BB.
