Focus on Millennium Park

Officers from the Town Policing Unit have been focusing efforts in Millennium Park this week to engage with park users.

The move, which coincides with the half term break, follows a number of concerns raised by different park users, including the uses of the park, complaints of low level anti-social behaviour and noise complaints.

As well as officers speaking to park users the Force will be surveying park visitors and asking about their uses of the park, their engagement with police and their views on what could be improved.

Inspector Mark Coxshall, Head of the Operational Support Unit, said: “We have been working in Millennium Park for many months to try and address issues that exist, and this requires effective dialogue and consultation with stakeholders.

“Partnership working is vital in dealing with community concerns and we have been working with other agencies, including the Youth Service and the parish to come up with solutions to the concerns, which could be something which appears small like a noise complaint but can have a huge impact on someone’s quality of life.

“These concerns often come down to differences of opinion, which is why it is so important to speak to all the stakeholders and work out their priorities and then jointly work with them and partner agencies on developing a solution.

“Millennium Park is a lovely space within St Helier and we, and of course all of the community, want it to be a place where everyone can go and relax and we think we working together we can all achieve that.”

The Police Command Post has been stationed in the park since Monday, and will continue to be stationed there for the rest of the week between 10am and 6pm with officers available to speak with anyone who might wish to discuss issues or concerns.
