Rubery councillors meet with police in bid to crack down on anti-social behaviour

RUBERY councillors have held their first meeting with police since the May elections as part of plans to tackle anti-social behaviour in the area.

The meeting between Bromsgrove District Councillors Esther Gray and Peter McDonald and Rubery police came during Anti-social Behaviour (ASB) Awareness Week (July 3-July 9).

Coun Gray and Coun McDonald met with police in the hopes of developing solutions to help tackle crime, fear of crime and ASB in Rubery.

During the meeting discussions were had about the continued vandalism being carried out in Brook Road Park and St Chads Park as well as how people can report acts of ASB when they occur.

Discussions also involved the council and police working together to bring investment into Rubery parks alongside improvements to ‘much needed’ youth provision.

Coun Gray and Coun McDonald said: “It is our objective to develop community policing; encouraging interactive partnerships between law enforcement agencies, their officers, and the people

they serve. By developing connections within the community, police are better informed and empowered to solve public safety problems.

“We will continue to have regular meetings, and in doing so, make Rubery even a better place to live than it is now.”
