POLICE are stepping up patrols in an area of Old Colwyn where numerous reports of anti-social behaviour have been made recently.

This follows officers speaking with residents in the area of Station Road and Queen’s Avenue, who told of incidents near Wynnstay Road.

North Wales Police (NWP) will now increase its high-visibility patrols in the area, and have made residents aware of how they can report any such incidents in future.

NWP West Conwy Coastal said: “Whilst speaking with local residents in the area of Station Road and Queen’s Avenue, Old Colwyn, it would appear that there has been reports of anti-social-related incidents in and around the area of the park that runs at the rear of the roads leading down to Wynnstay Road.

“In order to help deter these incident, we have increased high-visible patrols in the area.

“Upon speaking with residents it would appear that some of the issues we have previously been unaware of, due to them not being reported.

“Please could I encourage you to report incidents should you be witness to them, as this will help us maintain awareness of the current issues.

“If we are unaware of incidents taking place, it makes it somewhat more difficult to be able to provide a response and deal with the current issues.

“Can we also take this time to make you aware a new scheme called North Wales Community Alerts - this is a new scheme which is designed to allow us to send out messages to our local communities with information specific to them.

“The messages could relate to incidents going on in the local area, crime prevention, good news stories of work done locally and also appeal for information.

“If you are not already part of this scheme, please follow the link provided below (www.northwalescommunityalert.co.uk), which will take you directly to the North Wales Community Alert website, where you can sign up and read further information in relation to this highly effective scheme.

“Another part of this scheme is a tri-monthly survey called ‘North Wales Talking’.

“This survey gives local residents the ability to say what their local issues are and this information will be reviewed by local policing teams.

“The idea of this survey is that it allows us to see what local residents see as their main issues in the community.

“We will pick the top three to focus our attention on and provide and update in due course.”
