'Let's pull together to curb crimes'

 POLICE, councillors, community and church groups and residents are coming together to combat anti-social behaviour and crime in Fishponds.

Officers have stepped up patrols in both Hillfields and Oldbury Court in response to recent incidents and calls from the public for a greater presence.

Public meetings have been held in both areas, at which there were calls to help the police by reporting crimes promptly and also a willingness to try to organise more positive activities for young people.

It was recognised that the majority of people in the area are law-abiding.

In St George, Bristol East MP Kerry McCarthy is holding a joint surgery with the police and councillors on December 1.
