- Monthly cleanups going well.
- Herriet Lane is looking much more tidier. Thanks to Councillor Raja for providing help through Community Payback scheme.
- Next clean up is 6th of June.
- Always recruiting Neighbourhood Improvement Volunteers with the intention for them to look after a specific part or block around their residences.
Bailie Raja thanked Tahir Mohammed’s efforts who is leading this group. He asked everyone present to support this project.
The Police Commanders were present to have a Q&A about these and any wider, general issues.
Ch Insp Carol Maguire summarised last months crime statistics. Overall the level of crime is low compared to rest of Glasgow South. There were no assaults in past month (there were 10 two months ago). Only 9 crimes reported in last month. There is a higher rate of theft of valuables from cars. Residents are advised to adopt good practice by locking doors and removing valuables from vehicles or stroing them securely (boot or glove compartment). In Glasgow south there has been an increase in ATM theft however nothing reported in Pollokshields – residents are encouraged to be careful of any suspicious looking machines and make sure it is reported.
