Foleshill and Tile Hill residents join forces to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour

Residents in the Foleshill and Tile Hill areas of Coventry are taking to the streets for a week of action to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour.

“Not In My Neighbourhood Week”, which runs from 13 -17 October, aims to highlight what is being done in Foleshill and Tile Hill, day in, day out, to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour. Agencies working together with the Coventry Community Safety Partnership will meet with members of the public to discuss the crime issues that need to be tackled and to build confidence in the work they do with the police to make communities safer.

Councillor Andrew Williams, Coventry City Council's Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods and Community Safety said, "Local residents, neighbourhood policing teams, local authority services, Neighbourhood Watch schemes, anti-social behaviour officers and other local service providers will all be working together locally to inform people of what is happening in Foleshill and Tile Hill and to build on the positive work that's taken place so far to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour in the area."
