Anti-social behaviour becomes new priority for police in Chapel and Chinley

Posted on 28th October 2014

Officers will be heading out on increased patrols to tackle anti-social behaviour (ASB) in Chapel and Chinley after setting the issue as the latest priority.

The priority was agreed by residents, local councillors and partner agencies during the Safer Neighbourhood governance meeting on Tuesday, October 21.  

The issues raised included groups of youths acting anti-socially, leaving litter behind and causing a noise nuisance to people living nearby, particularly around Memorial Park, Chapel.

Officers from the Chapel and Chinley Safer Neighbourhood Team will be carrying out high-visibility patrols in hot spot areas to identify groups taking part in ASB and engaging with them about the effects of their behaviour on local people.   

PC Andy Crosthwaite and PCSO Karen Green will be working alongside local councillors and partner agencies to help find solutions and deter youngsters from taking part in anti-social and nuisance behaviour.

The Safer Neighbourhood team will be carrying out increased patrols over Halloween, Bonfire Night and over the festive season to help to deter ASB.  

To have your say on policing priorities for your community, the next Safer Neighbourhood governance meeting is set to take place on Wednesday, January 21.

The meetings, which run quarterly, will take place at Rems Cafe Bar on Market Street, Chapel from 7pm.
