Newport police clamp down on crime

Newport Police will be kicking off November with a city-wide clamp down on crime and anti-social behaviour.

Not in My Neighbourhood Week, runs from 2-6 November and is a national week of action aiming to encourage local communities to work with the police to combat crime and anti-social behaviour.

On Monday 2 November Newport residents can see the film COW before it’s screened on BBC Wales later that night. The hard-hitting story, which shows the dangers of using a mobile phone while driving will be shown in front of the Tesco Superstore on Leeway Industrial Estate at 6pm.

The Safer Newport partnership will be working together, directing offenders to clean up litter and graffiti as part of Community Payback, and throughout the week the police will be targeting drug suppliers and burglars based on hot intelligence from the people of Newport.

Gwent Police Assistant Chief Constable Jeff Farrar said: “Anyone concerned about criminal and anti-social behaviour should call us on our new non-emergency number 101 and in an emergency they should dial 999.”
