Following the spring and summer spate of thefts from cars and homes in Penarth Marina, a revived Penarth Marina Neighbourhood Watch Scheme is now close to being launched.
Penarth Marina Residents Association say all they are now waiting for is for formal approval from South Wales Police and official permission to post official “Neighbourhood Watch” signage around the residential area of the Marina.
A public meeting was held in the Marina on July 10th with Chief Inspector Tony Williams, who is in charge of local policing (See https://tinyurl.com/y7kod6t8)
Tonight (Thursday August 9th) there is to be a “Drop In Session” held at Penarth Police HQ in Windsor Road for local residents living in the Marina itself and anywhere in Penarth who wish to raise any issues they may have about local crime and anti-social behaviour.
The “drop-in sessions” are open to everyone – living anywhere in Penarth – and provide an opportunity for any local residents to raise matters of concern on a one-to-one basis with police officers .
The new drop-in sessions have replaced the former so-called “PACT” meetings which were held in various electoral wards of the town and in the offices of Penarth own Council at West House in Stanwell Road.
In the event the Penarth Police “drop in session” at the Police Station this evening was cancelled with almost zero notice . Police said this was because of an “on-going incident”
