6.    TO RECEIVE A REPORT FROM RAF LAKENHEATH
None.

7.    TO RECEIVE A BI-MONTHLY REPORT FROM THE POLICE
Sgt Larner: described how Brandon continues to suffer from theft from and theft of motor vehicles with some cars being burnt out. There have been a number of daytime burglaries and measures have been put in place to tackle the problem. Individuals in the Town have also been targeted for committing anti-social behaviour. Brandon currently has one Police Officer less with the departure of PC Joe Adams. An Industrial Watch scheme is already underway and a meeting is being held to start a Pub Watch scheme.
At the request of Brandon Town Council, Sgt Larner commented upon the adoption of a prosecution policy by that Council. He explained how the Crown Prosecution Service examines each case and follows a prosecution code. The CPS acts as a safeguard to prevent unreasonable prosecutions. The Police cannot wait for Brandon Town Council to make a decision each time at the next Council meeting because culprits could evade prosecution as a result. He requested that any such decision be therefore left to the Police.
Cllr Mr S A Newbon: agreed that the CPS are best placed to make these decisions.
Cllr Mr N A Vant: questioned whether Brandon Town Council needs a prosecution policy.
Cllr Mr V E Ashley: believed that prosecutions are sometimes a waste of time. He claims there is a truancy problem in Brandon that is out of hand and is not being resolved.
Cllr Mr P R Ridgwell: reported that a Range Rover had recently been stolen to order from under a Police CCTV camera and the owner was later told that the camera had been switched off when the crime had taken place. Children had also been taking loose stones from the flint stone walls in Gas House Drove and throwing them at animals in the adjacent fields. Cllr Mr P R Ridgwell complained about parking problems at the junction of Bury Road and Heath Road. He also described how traffic on the High Street came to a standstill for half an hour last Friday evening. This was because two vehicles were unloading outside the One Bell Pub while a dustcart was parked opposite.
Sgt Larner: again pointed out that Forest Heath District Council runs the CCTV system in Brandon. He also accepts that there is a considerable traffic problem in Brandon.
Mr Keily: stated he is a bus driver and agreed that the high volume of traffic in Brandon is a big problem.
Cllr Mr N A Vant: asked whether Sgt Larner saw any connection between the outburst by Cllr Mr V E Ashley at the last Council meeting and his subsequent harassment by the Police.
Sgt Larner: suggested that Cllr Mr V E Ashley should make a complaint to the Police if he has a personal issue. He pointed out that such a matter is not the business of Brandon Town Council.
Cllr Mr V E Ashley: emphasised the problems connected with truancy and anti-social behaviour in Brandon.
The Vice Chairman Cllr Mrs E Milner: advised Cllr Mr V E Ashley to report the matter to the Headmaster of the school involved. The Education and Welfare Officer could then address the problem in accordance with the Children in Public Care Policy.
Cllr Mr V E Ashley: also reported that fifteen bales of straw were stolen and taken to the Old Suffolk Campsite then burnt.

He also drew attention to the Brecks Warrener Bus arriving an hour late on two consecutive Sundays. Cllr Mr P R Ridgwell voiced disappointment at Brandon Town Council not having been consulted regarding the timetable for this bus.
Cllr Mr A P Saxby: informed the meeting that a neighbour had complained about wheelie bins smelling due to them only being emptied once a fortnight. He also asked whether we really need Ward Reports on the Town Council agenda each month.
