Melin and Dyfed-Powys Police working together to tackle ASB in Brecon

Working in partnership with police is an important part of what we do. Recently, we came together with Dyfed-Powys Police in Brecon to learn more about residents' concerns regarding antisocial behaviour.

Melin staff and police officers stood together

Teams from across Melin recently joined forces to tackle issues affecting our residents in Brecon, Powys.

We had recently received several complaints in relation to antisocial behaviour (ASB) and waste/recycling issues in the area. Recognising that a collaborative approach was needed to tackle these issues, our Community Safety, Neighbourhood and Communities Teams organised a resident engagement event at our Old Court House housing scheme in the town.

It was great to be joined at the event by partners from Dyfed Powys Police, PC Andrew Edwards and PCSO Laura Morgan. We always work closely with the police to tackle any persistent ASB which affects our residents.

Despite an ice-cold winter’s day, we were pleased to have several residents join us to discuss the issues that have been raised and provide us and the police with important feedback on how we can help alleviate these concerns. Residents were also pleased to see a co-ordinated response to their concerns and we look forward to continuing to work closely with residents in the area.

Sadly, despite its stunning location, Brecon and Powys more generally isn’t immune to ASB. We want to hear from residents if they have any concerns about ASB or other community issues. The sooner residents let us know, the sooner we can act.
