Community Officers Respond to Concerns in Windsor Park Community

This past week our community officers joined with partner agencies to conduct various operations in the Windsor Park area, in response to community concerns around parking, derelict vehicles, and animals.

At the beginning of the week officers visited areas of concern and discussed parking violations, including causing obstruction while stationary, double parking, and parking on sidewalks, giving advice to the residents there.

The officers visited the areas again later in the week, along with enforcement officers from the Department of Environmental Health, and tagged 9 derelict vehicles for removal by the DEH. Officers also issued 4 tickets for parking violations. Officers returned and issued a further 11 traffic tickets with the assistance of the Traffic & Roads Policing Unit. The officers also spoke to other residents with whom they had not previously made contact with, and advised them about what is and is not permissible, regarding parking in the area.

On this visit, officers were pleased to note that the homeowner of one of the residences was in the process of adding additional parking spaces to the residence, which would alleviate the need for persons residing there, parking illegally.

The community officers also joined with animal welfare officers from the Department of Agriculture, to conduct patrols for any stray or unattended dogs.

In addition, while conducting checks at the Community Park, officers made one arrest for possession & consumption of controlled drugs, as well as attempting to supply ganja.

“Our officers will continue to carry out random checks in the area and work with the residents of the community, along with our partner agencies, to find the best ways to continue to address the issues which affect them,” says Superintendent Roje Williams. “The police and our partners are aware of the changing nature of some of our communities in recent years.  Windsor Park is a prime example, where an increase in multi-tenant housing means more cars at residences.  As such, a balanced approach must be taken, where we consider the needs of all parts of the community when trying to find workable solutions.”

“This is just one example of the work we do in the communities that we serve, and we will respond to any concerns brought to our attention.”
