Officers in Buxton to work with local youngsters throughout the school holidays

Posted on 12th June 2015

Safer Neighbourhood officers in Buxton will be teaming up with local youngsters to help prevent anti-social behaviour over the school summer holidays. 

The town’s Safer Neighbourhood Team hopes to deter issues such as anti-social behaviour (ASB), vandalism and damage throughout the summer when children are off school.

Officers will be heading out on high-visibility patrols throughout the town to deter any possible ASB and to interact with youngsters about the issue and the possible effect that this could have on people living nearby.

Officers will also be looking to work alongside partner agencies to set up diversionary activities in the town for young people to get involved with, to keep them entertained and provide them somewhere to go and meet their friends in a safe environment.

PC Mark Parkinson from the Buxton Town Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “We want all local young people to have an enjoyable summer by having fun, socialising with friends and staying out of trouble, in safe environments.

“I would encourage any local residents who are concerned about incidents of ASB or any other crime or issues in their community, to contact the team on 101.”
