Selly Oak NHT Weekly Round Up for 31st March – 4th April

Hello again and thanks for taking the time to read this update from the Selly Oak NHT.

This has been yet another busy week for officers on the Selly Oak Neighbourhood Team. We’re pleased to report that there have been no Robberies since 16 March and no Burglaries since 26 January within the Bournbrook area.

On 28th March, Selly Oak Officers worked in partnership with the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency, Taxi Enforcement Officers and Licensing Officers to conduct a taxi operation on the car park of The Goose Public House. We examined 69 private hire vehicles and checked to see if they had the correct license plates, paperwork and identification. On the night, 3 taxis were seized for plying for business with violations.

With the University Library staying open 24 hours to accommodate students and their upcoming exams, PCSO Carl Barrington attended a meeting at the Guild on Thursday, 3rd April to discuss arranging ‘A Walking Bus’ for students. We will provide an update in relation to this next week!

Last week, we promised to provide you with an update on Anti-social Behaviour (ASB) level warnings. Below is a list of ASB levels, which are taken seriously and could affect not only your housing but your place at University.

ASB LEVELS

LEVEL 1
Joint visit from PCSO/Officer and Student Wardens.

The warning is carried out by the student wardens. They tell the students to turn their music off at 23.00hrs. If students are having pre-drinks or a house party they are encouraged to inform neighbours a few doors either side. Also, students are reminded that they must remain quiet when they arrive home at 03.00hrs.

During this stage, students are told about all the ASB levels in detail. Finally, the PCSO/Officer will take students details that are confirmed with the students ID card. The Community Warden Scheme Co-ordinator at the Guild of Students and the letting agent/landlord are notified.

LEVEL 2
Joint visit from PCSO/Officer and Student Wardens.

The warning is carried out by the PCSO or Officer. The PCSO/Officer will again take the students details, which will be confirmed with the students ID card. The Community Warden Scheme Co-ordinator at the Guild of Students and the letting agent/landlord are notified.

A letter to the parents will be issued outlining the circumstances of the incidents. Parents are warned of the outcome if the matter with their child persists.

LEVEL 3
Officers will speak to the Safer Community Officer at Birmingham City Council about pursuing an Anti-social Behaviour Injunction or Order (ABSI/ASBO).

LEVEL 4
The University of Birmingham could look to remove the student off their course!

We hope that we never have visit our students for this reason, but these measures are put in place to protect our students and the community from harm.
