City of Manchester South continue good work in the community

Last week, Greater Manchester Police launched a new neighbourhood policing model to make communities safer, following a vigorous review and public consultation.

There will be a much greater focus on officers and partner agencies working together in communities to fight crime and solve local problems – such as burglary, drug dealing and speeding.

Members of the public will know their dedicated named teams who will be more visible in communities and more accessible than ever before.

The neighbourhood policing team from City of Manchester South carried out multiple operations throughout week focusing key areas of concern raised by the locals in that area.

At the start of the week, there were significant police presence in areas of South Manchester with officers taking a proactive approach to deter anti-social behaviour around Metrolink stops during peak times.

Several warrants were carried out across South Manchester, with officers recovering multiple air rifles, blank ammunition, and amount of cannabis at one address in Wythenshawe.

Five individuals were arrested at the address for possession with intent to supply and possession of a firearm without a certificate.

Traffic operations were also carried out in Fallowfield on Sopwith Drive and Alexandra Rooad, as well as Brownley Road in Benchill, Wythenshawe.

A large number of tickets were issued across the week for offences such as the use of a mobile phone behind the wheel, not wearing a seatbelt and speeding.

Officers out on patrol also carried out knife sweeps in different locations as we look to continue our work in reducing knife crime in Greater Manchester.

The Student Engagement Team also attended the University of Manchester on Friday offering out safety advice to the student along with drink spiking prevention kits.

Speaking at the end of the week, City of Manchester South Neighbourhood Chief Inspector Stephen Warriner said: “After listening to our community, we have devised a plan to tackle a number of issues which are main areas of concern for the people of South Manchester.

“It is our aim to keep the general public safe by fighting, preventing and reducing crime across the whole of Greater Manchester.

“My officers have been out and about tackling the issues raised by members of the community, from anti-social behaviour to speeding and driving offences, to drug dealing and the reduction of burglaries and robberies.

“Throughout the week we have been conducting speeding operations, executing warrants and patrolling hot spot areas to send a clear message to those engaging in criminal activity that it will not be tolerated.

“We also want to hear from you – if you see anything suspicious or have any concerns then please report it to ourselves via the new dedicated section on our Force website.”
