Vandalism - prevention measures
Vandalism is an illegal, anti-social activity that creates a negative impression of an area and contributes to people's fear of crime.
We aim to prevent vandalism in the area by using CCTV, wardens and improved street lighting. We can provide advice and information on what local people can do to stop vandals and how to tell us about vandalism. Where the vandalism has taken place on council property we will carry out repairs.
