Community Policing Priorities

Antisocial behaviour, Violence and Disorder:

There has been a further reduction in the number of Antisocial Behaviour calls within Kincardine and Mearns for the month of November, with 36 incidents reported.

Of those calls, 25 related to incidents involving young people with the remainder neighbour disputes. We value the continued support of our community across Kincardine and Mearns and encourage them to contact us where there are any antisocial behaviour issues. If we are aware of the issues then we can take action to prevent escalation.

There were 4 assaults within the November period, which is down by 4 on the previous month. Of those 4 reported, all are detected.

There were no serious assaults reported during November.

Acquisitive Crime:

There have been 2 reported incidents of careless driving this month, both of which are still being investigated.

K&M Officers have continued Operation Cedar patrols over this month. In response to local business’ complaints re parking in Stonehaven, officers issued14 tickets for yellow line offences and 1 ticket for a speeding offence, along with a number of warnings.

Community Engagement & Reassurance

Residents and Councillors are encouraged to contact Police on 101 and highlight locations of concern so that they may be added to the patrol matrix.

Police Surgeries

PC Camus in conjunction with Sandra McGuigan of Aberdeenshire Voluntary Action is hosting surgeries within Banchory, Laurencekirk, Portlethen and Stonehaven Libraries. The purpose is to give access to those people who feel that contact would be “wasting Police time”, or do not wish to have the Police at their address or do not want to be seen entering a Police Station, the opportunity to discuss issues that could in turn be clarified as a Police or non-police matter.
