Jenny Starts as New Community Safety Officer for North BristolJanuary 24th, 2012
Jenny Dean is the new Safer Bristol community safety officer working in north Bristol, with colleague Cheryl Cole, alongside police and council officers to improve the safety and quality of the environment for local people. Jenny will work specifically in Horfield, Lockleaze, Redland, Bishopston and Cotham.
Jenny who some years ago worked in North Bristol so knows it well said,
“I am delighted to be back in North Bristol. At present l am working on plans to reduce burglary, anti-social behaviour and theft from cars as these are the three priority areas that the Neighbourhood delivery team are focussing on”.
There have been some concerns about the impact on areas where there are a high number of student properties. I am organising multiagency visits to welcome the students to the area and make sure they know the right information on waste collections, being good neighbours etc. I am also working on plans to reduce students being victims of crime, particularly burglary”.
Jenny attends the Neighbourhood Forums and takes on work around concerns raised by residents. Recently residents asked that a Community Speed Watch scheme should be set up.
“I have been working with the Neighbourhood Police Teams to set this up and we are about to start training the residents who have volunteered”.
Jenny also runs a scheme for young people who come up with ideas to improve their local area. Applications and information is on www.bristol.gov.uk/transformers
