Police give report to Broch Safety Group


Inspector John Esson last week appealed for residents to come forward when they see someone breaking the law, telling the Community Safety Group that only then it could be dealt with.

Inspector Esson, who was in attendance for the Safety Group meeting on Thursday, April 17, told the group that if people are not reporting incidents to the appropriate authorities, nothing can be done about it.

The Inspector told the Safety Group that West Shore figures were down, and then spoke about his site visit with Councillor Ian Tait and the concerns of Broadsea residents.

In response to information regarding ‘no drinking’ signs across the town, Inspector Esson said: “My understanding was that things were fine to go ahead with pictorial signs.

“They are sufficient for all languages, and the residents there were quite happy with it,” the Inspector said.

The Inspector added that Grampian Police would look to increase their patrols of the area.

“Coming into the better weather, you’re going to get people coming out,” he said.

These patrols included cycling units and Community Wardens who can get out more across the area.
