Information Update – 17th September 2009
Operation Sibley updated 25th Sept 2009
Operation Sibley has been set up to tackle the supply and mis use of controlled drugs in Trimdon Village.
On Friday the 25th of September 2009 at 15.25hrs Sedgefield and Trimdon Neighbourhood Police Team successfully executed a magistrate’s search warrant at an address in Meadow Road Trimdon Village . A quantity of drugs and a suspected stolen motorcycle were seized and one male was arrested. Police community support officers will be providing extra reassurance and information packs to local residents, the operation was the result of community intelligence being acted on. Local police will continue to pro actively target anyone dealing drugs in an attempt to close down the open drugs markets; this can only be possible with the help of the community.
Anyone with any information in relation to the misuse of controlled drugs can contact Pc1636 John Seymour of the Sedgefield Neighbour Police Team on 0345 60 60365 or you can contact Crimestoppers.
The above operation has been running since the 1st of April 2009 its main purpose being to target the anti social use of off road bikes, quad bikes and mini mottos. A number of tactics have been used including covert patrols and use of the force off road motorcycle section, over 15 warning notices have been issued and 6 bikes have been seized. A ten percent reduction in calls in relation to these types of incidents has been achieved. Although the operation is now complete we will still continue to target those who use bikes in an anti social manner warning notices and seizures will continue to be used.
We have recently distributed posters around the Trimdons and to all school premises in relation to parking in and around schools at drop off and pick up times. Can all drivers be considerate as to where they park at schools taking into account yellow road markings and not parking across access to private drive ways? If this can be achieved then the issuing of fixed penalty tickets will not be required and road safety will continue to improve.
