Local youths issued with ASB letters

Posted on 12th December 2022 | in Community , Police

In recent weeks police have received multiple complaints regarding youths kicking at front doors of properties in the local area. This has been occurring in line with when school finishes for the day into the dark evenings.

Many of the victims of these incidents have been elderly residents, which has left them saddened, scared and frustrated.

Enquiries made by residents and police have identified some of those responsible which has enabled police to conduct several home visits to speak with the youths responsible in the presence of their parents/caregivers. During these visits the youths have been issued with ASB (anti-social behaviour) letters. Fortunately in these instances there has not been any damage caused, none the less the marks of the footprints have been awful for residents to be reminded of these senseless acts.

We hope that residents will feel reassured by this example that by reporting these ASB incidents to police, they can end with possible outcomes. We do not want our community to believe ASB will not be dealt with.

We continue to work alongside the local schools, council and partners to deal with issues faced by the community we serve.

If you are affected by anti-social behaviour and have not yet reported this, please do so by calling 101 (non emergency) or via our website. For all emergencies please call 999
