I've recently moved to a large estate that consists of mixed social housing and privately owned housing. (I rent mine through private landlord.) All of it has been social housing at some point in the past. Someone I was talking to the other day termed it a 'sink' estate. I keep seeing police cars driving around or parked on local streets. Is this police presence a positive or negative? Good because it means they're doing their job and keeping an eye on things? Bad because it maybe means that too much stuff is happening that shouldn't be? I don't know how to take it. What are your opinions? Thanks.
