MANERP is the only area that still has some resemblance of a Neighbourhood Policing Team. It is not surprising that crime in the area is high. The major issues are of course drugs. The problems that have been highlighted above are a breeding ground for this vile trade and whilst the police have been very successful in finding cannabis factories and arresting dealers, the trade is almost impossible to stop given the limited resources the police have not only here but in the whole country in general. Unless there is a reversal of funding and an increase in police officers, we feel that the matter will become worse before it gets any better.
