Police in Bolsover are vowing to step up patrols in a bid to tackle anti-social behaviour (ASB) around the town’s Assembly Rooms.
PC Peter Harley and PCSO Ben Perry from the town’s Safer Neighbourhood team have received a number of reports over recent weeks around nuisance and disruptive behaviour at the Assembly Rooms on Hilltop Avenue.
PCSO Perry said: “We have received reports of groups of young people congregating around the area and disrupting meetings that are taking place inside the Assembly Rooms by running into the building and causing damage.
“Anyone who is not attending a meeting or group at the Assembly Rooms should not be there. The incidents are causing upset for users of the building and local residents, and we are hoping to get this issue tackled as soon as possible.”
Officers will be carrying out increased patrols and speaking to those responsible, whilst working alongside partner agencies to consider setting up diversionary activities.
The team has apprehended three members of public for disruptive behaviour and officers are looking to focus on issuing Acceptable Behaviour Contracts and Restorative Justice.
