Kilburn Moped Seized 16.12.17- Jan 18

The Kilburn Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team is targeting anti-social behaviour as a community priority.

During the next few months the team will be targeting the issue, especially around youngsters knocking on doors and nuisance moped riding in the area.

It has been made a community priority following concerns from local residents and officers will be carrying out regular patrols to any hotspot areas, advising people about the issue and taking enforcement action where necessary.

In December, the team seized a moped which was seen being ridden by a 15 year old boy with no licence or insurance in the Chapel Street area of Kilburn.

PCSO Claire Brown, of the Kilburn Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “Local residents have told us they are concerned about anti-social behaviour in the area, with particular reports of youngsters knocking on doors and running away, or riding mopeds illegally or anti-socially in the area.

“We understand the misery such activities can have on the local community, as well as the risk to safety that nuisance riding can have for both the rider and other members of the public and we are committed to dealing with these concerns, taking positive action whenever we can.”

To report anti-social behaviour, or if you have any information about those responsible for causing it, call Derbyshire police on 101, except in an emergency, when you should dial 999.
