Ordsall and Langworthy’s Neighbourhood Team have been awarded a Greater Manchester Police STARS award for their work in tackling anti-social behavior.
The award was presented to the Neighbourhood Team for working proactively with partner agencies, local residents and businesses to tackle anti-social behaviour.
The Ordsall and Langworthy team this year secured over £15k of funding to help tackle the anti-social behaviour that has taken over the area in recent years. With this funding, close relationships with partner agencies and exceptional levels of commitment, the team has taken real strides to tackling what is seen as a huge problem.
In August alone, 574 crimes were reported in the Langworthy and Ordsall areas, ranging from possession of weapons, to violent and sexual assaults. This highlights the true scale of the problem that the Neighbourhood team have to deal with.
Ordsall and Langworthy Neighbor Team carried out a Week of Action in the Broadwalk area of Langworthy last week, working with the Local Authority. This resulted in a number of arrests, cannabis street warnings being issued and Community Protection Orders being utilised.
