In an emergency always call 999

Officers work to combat ASB and off-road vehicles in Buxton Rural communities

Posted on 7th May 2014

Officers from the Buxton Rural Safer Neighbourhood Team will be heading out on the beat to tackle anti-social behaviour and off-road vehicles in the area.

The Buxton Rural Safer Neighbourhood Team will be focusing on the priorities for the next three months after they were raised at the latest governance meeting held on Monday, April 28.

To combat anti-social behaviour (ASB) in the Goyt Valley area, officers will be carrying out high-visibility patrols at key times to identify groups taking part.

Police will also be looking to gather intelligence around planned illegal raves in the area to prevent further ASB ahead of the summer months.

The policing team will be engaging with the youths and advising them about the consequences of ASB and the impact that their behaviour has on the local community.

Officers will also be interacting with the youngsters to deter them from anti-social behaviour and to encourage them to take part in diversionary activities.

Residents will be encouraged to report anti-social behaviour by calling police on 101 or 999 in an emergency.

Park Peak rangers and the Forestry Commission have raised the issue of off-road motorists with the Buxton Rural Safer Neighbourhood Team.

The policing team will be speaking to motorists about the importance of safe and considerate driving and will be seeking to prosecute anyone who is found to be driving on SSSI (Sites of Special Scientific Interest) land. Other motorists will be dealt with according to the driving offences committed.

If you have any issues or concerns in relation to local policing please contact your local Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team on 101.
