Local parents after undertaking basic training around conflict resolution and anti-social behaviour were teamed up with Police Community Support Officers to patrol targeted locations on the look out for children and young people committing anti-social behaviour.
Community Foundation believes on the notion that community safety and security are not the sole responsibility of the Police but rather a shared responsibility between the Police and Public.
Parent Patrol is a new initiative of Community Foundation. This initiative will provide an opportunity to local parents to take part in joint patrols with the Police Community Support Officers in areas around Lozells, to prevent anti-social behaviour.
We are in the process of identity and working with local parents to become more proactive in helping their children stay away from anti-social behaviour.
The programme will create awareness amongst parents of the types ASB committed by youths (who even may be their own children), so they can have a more informed discussion with their children about ASB. This programme will also send a clear signal to youths in the area to be cautious, as their parents may be on patrol and catch them red handed!
It is the intention of the organisers that this active joint effort in crime prevention will enhance and improve the quality of life in Lozells.
We will be providing a number of free workshops and training for parents to take part in this initiative, covering:
Working with young people
Dealing with anti-social behaviour
Understanding crime and disorder
