  2. TH asked why the Police Report covered only part of the Priorities and not prostitution which was a main concern of our Ward (Clissold). He then asked permission to hand-out a photocopy of an email petition which was being sent to Hackney Council. This then instigated a lengthy discussion about the problems of prostitution, soliciting and curb crawling.

  3. A discussion then ensued about the possibilities of bringing in speakers from various agencies to talk to us about the above item. DJD said that he thought that this speaker would be ideal for the Clissold Ward Forums run by the Councillors.

  4. TH mentioned Item 8 in the Minutes of 29th October 2014 with reference to Police contact details. BB had brought contact details for distribution to the attendees and these were given out at the end of the meeting.

  5. SA asked about the increase mentioned at the last CAP meeting about the increase in burglaries. AD replied that they have subsided due mainly to persons being more security minded and the cold weather (windows kept closed).

  6. BF on behalf of the meeting said how good a job the Police are doing even after having sometimes to deal with events in other parts of the Borough due to the heightened terrorist threats.

  7. SC asked what the outcome was with reference to the ASB within Clissold Park. BF replied that he now has obtained keys to the Park and the problems have now decreased considerably.

  8. CP asked about the Community Policing Meetings and where are they advertised. The reply was that they are advertised on the SNT webpage. It was then discussed and agreed that BB would send the dates and venues for the next 4 meetings to DJD for circulation to attendees to distribute as necessary. BB said he would ensure that the notices are left at various centres throughout the ward.
