Crime has fallen massivley in Kings Cross in the past four years. But there is still soo much disturbing anti social behaviour. But everyone has differnet priorities – should the police focus on overweight lorries on Copenhagne Street, or kids on the Bemerton, or sex workers in Northdown Street, or street drinkers on the Cally Road. It is really easy to have your say and help set priorities for the police in the next couple of months.
Simply turn up on Thursday evening at 7.00pm at Safer Neighbourhood Panel at the church hall of the Blessed Sacrament on Copenhagen Street (opposite Bemerton Street). I know from attending this meeting that it really works – the police listen, go away and do something. Freaky. There is a document on crime in the Caledonian Ward here Download offences_reported_in_caledonian_ward_to_nov_2006.pdf
You can talk to the police and with other residents about crime issues in the neighbourhood. And if you feel like a cup of tea and perhaps a biscuit on a cold winters evening and meeting some of your neighbours, this is a good way of doing it.
