Coronavirus (COVID-19): the policing response and what you need to know

Anti-social behaviour

Anti-social behaviour has been identified within the town centre, particularly at evenings and weekends by groups of youths. Alongside added patrols in the key locations, we are following up these incidents with the use of ASB powers and tools such as letters and contracts prohibiting youths from particular areas of the town.
