Anti-Social Behaviour - We Did

  • The Neighbourhood Policing Team has increased high visibility patrols in the Quarry aimed at deterring people from behaving in an anti-social way and reassuring those residents who enjoy the area socially.

  • This will stay as a priority patrol area particularly for the Community Support Officers.

  • There has been a recent reduction in calls relating to the Quarry in relation to anti-social behaviour.

  • As a result of extra police patrols two youths have been arrested in the area for possession of drugs.
