The Oban Times - - NEWS -

PEO­PLE across Ar­gyll and West Dun­bar­ton­shire have high­lighted anti-so­cial be­hav­iour, fol­lowed by drug deal­ing and mis­use, as their main is­sues of con­cern, ac­cord­ing to the lat­est phase of the Your View Counts sur­vey.

The sur­vey, which helps de­ter­mine polic­ing pri­or­i­ties of com­mu­ni­ties, has been live for six months and has been com­pleted by al­most 16,000 peo­ple, with 685 of re­spon­dents liv­ing in Ar­gyll and West Dun­bar­ton­shire.

The sur­vey is just one of the ways in which Po­lice Scot­land works with the pub­lic, part­ners and stake­hold­ers to de­ter­mine the re­sponse to is­sues of con­cern to com­mu­ni­ties.

As­sis­tant Chief Con­sta­ble Andy Cowie said: ‘Residents in the Ar­gyll and West Dun­bar­ton­shire di­vi­sion have iden­ti­fied their pri­or­i­ties as anti- so­cial be­hav­iour and dis­or­der, drug deal­ing and mis­use, vi­o­lent crime, homes be­ing bro­ken into and child abuse.’
