“South Essex Homes, working with Southend-on-Sea Borough Council are currently trialling the operation of neighbourhood patrols in identified anti-social behaviour hotspots in the town. So far this has been proving to be very successful. In particular, the pilot has achieved extremely positive results in terms of disrupting and stopping anti-social behaviour in areas where there were previously problems. The presence of the neighbourhood patrol operatives on the estates has provided reassurance to residents and improved community confidence in our approach to tackling anti-social be-haviour.”
