The SOS trailer will be returning to the streets of Ramsgate in early November, as part of the latest Operation Clean Sweep.

The council’s crackdown, which aims to tackle anti-social issues, will be back in town on Tuesday 2 November, and as part of the operation, the SOS trailer will be parked outside Boots in Ramsgate between 9am and 4pm. Local people can come to discuss their concerns about crime and anti-social behaviour and to give ideas for future Clean Sweep locations and issues to tackle.

Fire safety advice will be available from Kent Fire and Rescue and a Police Community Support Officer will have crime prevention information available.

The SOS trailer has spent the summer months out and about across Thanet, providing a base for people to work from in the night-time economy.

Cllr. Chris Wells, Cabinet Member for Community Services, said: “Operation Clean Sweep is exceptionally successful and our officers do a great job of identifying hot spot areas to tackle. However, we know that the community is a great resource and residents know only too well exactly where the problems are. If you know of any such problem areas, then our team would be keen to hear from you. Equally, if you’ve got any concerns about crime or anti-social behaviour in your neighbourhood, come along to the SOS trailer and speak to our officers to see how they can help you.”

If you would like any further information about the SOS trailer or if you have any issues that need tackling in future Clean Sweeps, please call 01843 577737.
