Tackling Drug related Crime and Anti-social Behaviour

 

We are working hard to combat drug related crime and ASB in the City Centre. 

We have recently carried out successful warrants at addresses linked to drug use and dealing with positive results, including: Teenager charged and three others arrested in drugs supply enquiry – Bath | Avon and Somerset Police

 

Officers have also taken part in training alongside Night Time Economy partners including Door Staff, Suicide Prevention Volunteers and BID Night Marshals on how to identify, and treat drug overdoses using Naloxone

 

We regularly patrol hotspots identified as locations where use and dealing takes place. We rely heavily on community led intelligence to inform these patrols, as well as support evidence for warrants to go into addresses. You can report your concerns in person or online at Report drug dealing and use | Avon and Somerset Police

    Recent positive results for the City Centre Team include:

     

    • The issuing of a Community Protection Notice and a successful recall to prison for a male frequently causing drug related antisocial behaviour and crime in the Kingsmead Square area of Bath. Our ASB Team are now in the process of applying for a Criminal Behaviour Order.

     

    • We have worked with several partner agencies on the temporary closure of an address in the city centre that was frequently being used for drug supply and linked to acquisitive crime. The resident, a vulnerable male who was being cuckoo’d by several offenders, has now been given emergency housing.

    We continue to work towards issuing, and carrying out Warrants on properties associated with drug use and dealing. We have had successes in this department over the past month that have led to arrests and further investigations that are now underway.

    We have also worked with a local housing provider to successfully apply for a Court Ordered Injunction on a property in the City Centre linked to drugs related antisocial behaviour, putting several conditions on the occupant including restrictions on visitors allowed at the property.

    Warrants like these are not possible without quality information and intelligence provided by members of the public, so we encourage anyone witnessing drug-related ASB to report it to us.
