If you attend the regular Cathays PACT meetings – this will be another opportunity to speak with your local police (and councillors and other neighbours) on local issues of local anti-social activity.
Your PC’s and PCSO’s are a lifeline of information gathering and helping connect up our Cathays community. They make themselves available on a daily basis – If you see them around on foot patrol or on bike please talk to them about your issues or concerns in Cathays.
The local Police and PCSO’s want to hear from you. Many residents hesitate to contact the Cathays Police regarding their suspicions – as you fear it is wasting Police time (particularly in an era of austerity measures) yet if numerous residents contact the Police with their concerns – it helps build up intel on a problem or area of concern.
Reporting to 101 – via phone or email 101 the non-emergency information you wish to report
Please look at the Cathays Police website to highlight the monthly crime reporting statistics. The numbers on the Cathays map will represent high/low crime rate densities. Additionally if you read the ‘Community Paypack‘ initiative (part of community service) – you can recommend a street in Cathays that requires:
- removing graffiti
- clearing litter and rubbish from public areas
- repairing and decorating public building such as community centres
- clearing undergrowth from paths and other areas
- working on projects which benefit the environment
There is much you can do, by nominating a ‘community payback’ project for Cathays you can help see social remediation being undertaken in our fair district.
Your Cathays PCSO’s & PC’s are very dedicated people who care that your district can be a thriving and positive community. We actively encourage you to build a strong association with your local constabulary in Cathays.
You can meet your PC’s and PCSO’s for an informal discussion on Tuesday’s 9am-10am at Dalton Street Community Centre or on Wednesday’s at 2pm-3pm at Cathays Library.
Additionally you will see your Cathays PCSO’s walking around your district on a regular basis, please stop them and talk to them about your concerns, complaints or ideas – the PCSO’s are keen to work with all the residents, local businesses, religious establishments, landlords, students and anyone else based in Cathays. Alternatively you can attend the PACT (Police & Community Together) meetings on the first Monday or every other month – click for link!
Students: There is also a Police monthly informal drop-in at Cardiff Union to discuss safety issues or securing your properties!
