Tackling issues of concern
Reigate & Banstead Joint Enforcement Team (JET) is made up of Reigate & Banstead Borough Council officers with enforcement powers and Surrey Police officers. The team, which launched last June (2014), was set up to take a more visible, robust approach to the antisocial behaviour issues that concern you and your community, including:
• inconsiderate parking
• noisy neighbours
• abandoned vehicles
• littering and dog fouling
• cycling offences and
• problems with licensed premises and vehicles and their drivers.
A better, safer borough
Cllr James Durant, Executive Member for Licensing and Enforcement, said: “We live in one of the safest counties in England but we know that the inconsiderate behaviour by a minority is a concern to residents.
“If you’re experiencing antisocial behaviour or enviro-crime issues in your area, come along and talk to us at these events to find out more about the Joint Enforcement Team and how we can help.
“By working even more closely with Surrey Police and sharing some powers, the JET has enabled us to prevent and deal with a wider range of issues more effectively when they arise, making the borough an even better, safer place to live and work.”
Reigate and Banstead Neighbourhood Inspector Angie Austin, said: “Anti-social behaviour can have a huge detrimental effect on a community. It can also lead to other issues and by working closely with Reigate & Banstead Borough Council we hope our robust stance against such activities will mean our neighbourhoods remain a pleasant place to live and visit.”
