Pentland Community Safety Subgroup
This group is a sub group of the Neighbourhood Partnership and
focuses on all community safety issues. This group is made up of
staff from Services for Communities, Children& Families, Fire
& Rescue and the Police. The Community Safety Sub group
acts as a mechanism for the community to feed in concerns and
information related to community safety. It will also acts as the
monitoring group for the community safety activities contained in
the Local Community Plan.
The current priorities set 4th March by this group are:
Youth issues in the ward. As Spring/Summer approach,
historically youth calls increase. During the same period in
2012 there were 47 calls.
Thefts and acquisitive crime in the ward. Still continuing
although at a reduced rate to previous quarters. More scope for
visible deterrent patrols and education of householders.
Ongoing problem with dog fouling in Ward 2
