The Central Burntisland Tenants and Residents Association has recently developed a new partnership with the UK wide charity Crimestoppers and hopes that, in the not too distant future, residents will begin to see posters around the town advising what to do should you witness any criminal activities or anti-social behaviour.
CBITRA Chairman Iain Ralph says “the beauty of Crimestoppers is that all calls made to them are anonymous. We as a group work hand in hand with our Community Police Officers, the Safer Fife Team, Fife Council Housing Officers and Fife Council elected members.”
Burntisland’s new community policeman Danny Hatch says ”anti-social behaviour comes in many forms. Often fuelled by the consumption of alcohol, which descends into violence or vandalism to property, this unacceptable behaviour has a detrimental impact on law-abiding people‘s lives. All night parties can also cause great disturbance and distress to residents in neighbouring properties.
“I am aware that anti-social behaviour has been the subject of social media reports and in this respect, I can only stress the importance of reporting such incidents to police. Only by members of the community reporting these incidents through official channels can police gauge the extent of the problem and take appropriate action.”
