Youth Related Anti-Social Behaviour

Residents from in and around Castle Cary have been experiencing an increase in Anti-Social Behaviour, criminal damage and general nuisance, mainly related to youths. 

This behaviour is not tolerated and Police are working closely with the town council, local secondary schools and other violent reduction unit to try target these issues and take action.

Residents and members of the public are encouraged to report any Anti-social Behaviour they may witness, this allows officers to keep track of what is happening and where, and helps us prioritise the areas being effected the most.

Please report any Anti-social behaviour you may witness via the 101 line or the online report form found on our website.
