Clampdown on garage crimes

POLICE are to target garages around the St James flats, near Doncaster town centre, in a crime clampdown.

Officers agreed to make the Bond Close garages site one of their priorities for action after it was raised at the Hyde Park and Belle Vue Safer Neighbourhood Team Partners and Community Together meeting. It follows recent break-ins.

They are already looking at dealing with thefts from the communal areas of Silverwood House nearby.

Officers have been carrying out foot patrols in the area.

The concerns over the communal areas at Silverwood House have been an issue which officers have been looking at in the Hyde Park and Belle Vue area for over a month.

They will be reviewed at the next PACT meeting.
