    Bit of an explanation wanted for what and how wards are defined as rural (as a note in previous webchats they have focused on the town, but we did have a lot of questions about areas classed as ‘rural’)

    Question – How come Johnstown is rural, we are not rural?

    Slightly more positive one now but with a question as well – News used to be arson arson arson. Thankfully that seems very rare now. What happened? I guess individuals were banged up or moved.

    If so why can’t that happen to solve the group (police/council say small 20-30 people) who seem responsible for the spice consumption and town centre problems.

    PW: We worked really close with North Wales Fire and Rescue Service. I remember a previous webchat and saying it was a long term problem, and thankfully we have had some benefits. Part of it is we have arrested offenders and put them in prison. Part of it is engaging with those at risk of committing the offences and all of these things take time. Thanks for your comments. It is appreciated.

    SO: It is an ongoing piece of work.

    PW: Hopefully at the next webchat we will be able to say we have similar successes elsewhere.

    SO: We have had similar successes in terms of the spice epidemic. Those who are in rehab will impact positively on the reminder.

    PW: As an example there was a prolific town centre beggar, I had over 200 complaints about him. We took action. I then had 300 complaints for being too harsh. He is now a role model for others.

    Question – How come Johnstown is rural, we are not rural?

    SO: Wrexham County is split into two distinct districts. Wrexham town covers the main conurbation of Wrexham, including Caia Park, that is bounded by the A483 , the link road to the north and Cefn Road to the east. The rest of the County is designated Wrexham Rural which is policed from Rhos police station – and will remain so even when Llay is up and running.

    Speed cameras are back – How do you keep an officer motivated to keep looking at the same patch of the a483 in rossett through the viewfinder of a speed camera?

    SO: It is not a police officer. It is a demand that requires a response. If there was not speeding cars they would not be there.

    Another question about the new police station:

    “As the police prepare to move into new buildings in Llay (north wrexham )how will that impact on response times to crime in Wrexham town and especially in the south of the county.”

    Question for Inspector Wycherley:

    The town centre, everyday has groups of people, visibly under the effect of drugs and alcohol in the entrances to empty shops, bus station , green space Rhosddu and outside Richmond House Grosvenor Road.

    They are very intimidating and are affecting trade in the town. What are you powers to deal with them , how would you like to see your powers strengthened?

    Two more separate questions about the Public Space Protection Orders –

    1) Is the town PSPO worth the paper is it written on ?

    2) Are the Public Space Protection Orders toothless? A fine is the only penalty, for people with little or no money.

    PW: PSPO is in for a set piece of time. The Council will shortly be reviewing it. We will support whatever they decide.

    SO: There is also a longer term option, if people persistently breech the PSPO , to create a community behaviour order, so we can manage that person with specific conditions in related to offending behaviour rather than an overall condition to manage everyone. We have been successful in achieving some Community Behaviour Orders against persistent offenders.

    PO: Patrol staff will remain in Wrexham and Rhos.
