Police tackling ASB this summer holidays

Police tackling ASB this summer holidays

Police are again be tackling anti-social behaviour (ASB) hotspots in communities across the Ipswich area this summer.

Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) officers from across the Southern area of the Constabulary are working together to carry out patrols in targeted locations to give visible reassurance to the public. It means police resources can be focused and prioritised to make a difference within those areas during the school summer holidays.

Officers are engaging with members of the local community, including victims of ASB and offenders. Police will take appropriate action including visits to offenders and their families, issuing warning letters or arresting suspects. Dedicated patrols are also taking place by officers in known ‘hotspot' areas.

Last year police made 13 arrests, imposed four closure notices on properties, conducted 34 stop searches, issued 12 Community Protection Notice warning letters and made seven youth offending team referrals for further action.

Superintendent Kerry Cutler said: "Anti-social behaviour has a negative impact on communities and we fully acknowledge and understand the distress and upset such activity can have on residents and how it can blight communities and affect quality of life.

"For those who are unwilling to respect their communities, we will take positive, appropriate action against them.

"Last summer's operation was a great success and we are keen to repeat it this year. We continue to engage with communities all year round to identify and address any problem. These engagement activities will continue to ensure we fully understand the nature of the ASB and will respond to any new patterns or hotspots that develop.

"One of the things we are doing is to conduct a questionnaire in Ipswich to gather people's experiences of ASB to help increase our understanding of where ‘hotspots' exist. We already have a detailed intelligence picture but this work will enhance our current knowledge.

"Our work with our partners to positively divert and protect those involved in ASB to prevent more serious offending has and will continue. We also engage with our local schools in order to promote acceptable behaviour, highlight consequences of unacceptable behaviour and encourage communities to talk to us about local ASB."

Op Parkland covers the whole of the Southern area - Ipswich Central, Ipswich West, Ipswich East, Felixstowe, Hadleigh and Woodbridge

Closure Notices prohibit access to a premises for a specified period to prevent nuisance or disorder from continuing
