As we have previously reported, our Derby City Safer Neighbourhood Team is taking positive action in responding to reports of drug related anti-social behaviour in the city centre.
As part of this action 23-year-old Jade Oakes of no-fixed-abode in Derby, was sent to prison for 12 weeks on Saturday, April 7.
The sentence was issued by Southern Derbyshire Magistrates’ Court after she was found guilty of breaching her Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO). She had been found in the city centre by the team the day before.
Jade Oakes (pictured) was issued the CBO on Tuesday, March 6, by the same court, having been convicted of failing to leave Derby city centre when requested, contrary to section 39 (1) and (2) of the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014. The CBO ordered her to stay out the city centre apart from certain specific exceptions.
Sergeant Jamie Millard, who is in charge of the team, said: “This shows that we will use all our powers to try and ensure that Derby city centre remains a safe and pleasant place to visit, work and live.
“Anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated and whilst we are working with our partners to address the root course of some of these issues, those that do not engage with us and alter their behaviour will be brought to task.”
