Use of Air Weapons
We have had recent complaints regarding the anti social use of air weapons and criminal damage in the last week in particular at the rear of Front Street South Trimdon Village . We have had some intelligence as to who is possibly responsible and we have seized an air weapon which may be connected with the incidents, enquiries are on going. Anyone with any information in relation to these incidents please contact me ASAP.

Off road motorcycle complaints.
This can be a common complaint at this time of the year, however last year we had several successes in deterring these complaints. This was only possibly due to local information being passed on to the neighbourhood team. We will take positive action against anyone we have sufficient information on, this sometimes will mean a bit of a “waiting game” as our level of enforcement is much greater if we catch an individual on the bike on a highway.
