I received this note to share with you all from the Project Manager Thanet Community Safety Partnership. I should add that yes, I was invited but sadly I was working; I have a day job too and so I couldn’t attend the meeting.
“Dear Simon Moores
You were invited to the press launch of this last Friday. If you had attended you could have dispelled any fears your readers have.
This is not a sole TDC venture is run by the Thanet Community Safety Partnership. TDC were chosen to host the site because of the high quality product they are using and the well trained team they have in there customer services team to operate it. It has not cost any additional money this has been set up along with the Safe Cleaner Team (which will be shown in the next addition of Thanet Matters- by making better use in a coordinated manner of existing services. This project and team has taken over 18 months to set up. It has not been done on a whim or rushed. It is not taking any responsibilities away from any agencies involved but is complimenting them. It is partnership working at its best.
The Anti social Reporting Line is not an immediate response line that is the role of the Police. It is part of the process in seeking long term solutions not just papering over the cracks.
