Q ~ Mini Moto nuisance

A ~ Recent changes in legislation has been used to target the illegal use of mini moto's. The police now have the power to seize these vehicles when they are being driven without insurance and are causing nuisance to others. Over the past 2 weeks 5 mini moto's have been seized.

Anyone found driving a mini moto without insurance can be prosecuted; this prosecution can then lead to a fixed penalty of £200 and 6 points on your licence.

Q ~ What are the police doing to prevent problems on Halloween?

Q~ Are the police cuts going to affect the police in this area?

A~ While the cuts will have an affect in some areas; everything is being done through the Comprehensive Spending review to prevent frontline services being affected. The Barton team will continue to offer a quality service to the people of Barton.

Q~ What crimes have been happening?

To combat issues in local pubs on 1st August Pub Watch was relaunched. All the pubs and clubs in the town are members. This has the effect that if someone is barred from one pub in the town they are barred from all the pubs in the town. All public houses have a list of persons barred from public houses displayed in their premises'.

Other information from the e beat meeting is that from the 7th November 2011 the police can be contacted on 101 instead of 0845 60 60 222 for non emergency matters. The call will cost just 15p for the duration of the call. The police will be launching a campaign to make this number public knowledge.
