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

Anti Social Behaviour – Victoria Park and Mary Bailey playing Field

Frome Neighbourhood Policing team (NPT) have been made aware of incidents within both Victoria Park and Mary Bailey playing field, Frome. Incidents have involved large groups of youths behaving anti socially and inappropriately in the area.

We remain committed to dealing with both criminal and Anti-Social behaviour in a positive manner and encourage members of the public to report any issues that may be occurring. Reports can be made on 999, 101 or via the force website.

 

Actions

  • Friday 20th November, 2020

    Frome NPT continue to conduct Hi visibility patrols in the area, and continue to engage with varying amounts of young people. Again we ask that members of the public who are witnessing any incidents to report them to us as they are happening, via 999, 101 or the Force Website. Frome NPT are working closely with other partner agencies in relation to this matter.

     

    A Dispersal order is also in place for the park. This order gives officers the power to disperse individuals that are causing Anti-Social Behaviour from the area and if they return they could be arrested.

    Frome NPT continue to conduct High-visibility foot and mobile patrols. We have also utilised the Mendip Community Contact Vehicle to be parked in the area. This has allowed us to engage with lots of members of the public and young people. As a result we have seen a reduction of incidents in the area. We do however continue to monitor and patrol the area and would continue to ask that if members of the public are witnessing any incidents, they report them to us as they are happening, via 999, 101 or the Force Website.
