POLICE in Melbourn and Bassingbourn will be cracking down on anti-social behaviour and vehicle crime after a meeting with residents.
The latest neighbourhood panel meeting for Melbourn and Bassingbourn saw residents raise concerns about anti-social behaviour in Melbourn High Street, and rising levels of vehicle crime in the Mordens.
Dealing with these issues will now be a priority for local officers.
South Cambridgeshire Sector head, Insp Chris Savage, said: "We want to ensure we are tackling the issues that are important to the public.
"We will spend the next three months working on the new priorities," he said.
Speeding in the villages was identified as a problem at the previous meeting of the panel.
