OFFICERS responsible for policing Lympstone are delighted with the success of fulfilling PACT targets.

Quality of life for people living in the Glebelands area, dog fouling and anti-social behaviour were problems set as priorities at the village's first partners and communities together meeting held last May.

But PC Simon Halloran and PCSO Sarah Trayhurn are pleased with the work undertaken to redress the issues.

Speaking about work carried out in and around Glebelands, PCSO Trayhurn said:" The area was looking run down. Caravans have been removed and the area has been tidied up.

PC Halloran added: "There has been a marked difference in the area and some good work by the police was done early on to achieve this."

Two new litter bins have been installed near Candys Field as a result of dog fouling problems.

PCSO Trayhurn warned that police would be implementing enforcement measures in future should such a problem reoccur.

"We've had a dog warden go into the school, there has been education literature in local magazines and a poster competition.

"I will enforce from now on with dog fouling and litter."

PCSO Trayhurn, reflecting on the work the police, partner agencies and elements of the community have done, said: "I am really pleased with the success of PACT.

"Everybody has worked so hard. It is gratifying to get positive feedback from people that the priorities have been met.

"I would like more feedback from the public with a view of issuing new priorities."

The next PACT meeting in on October 13. If people have any concerns or ideas for new priorities, suggestion forms can be put into PACT boxes located in Londis and the post office.
