Long Eaton police continue West Park patrols as 18 year-old is arrested

Posted on 25th April 2017

Our officers in the Long Eaton Safer Neighbourhood Team are continuing their additional patrols in West Park in the town after the arrest of an 18 year-old last Friday evening (April 21). 

The extra patrols are due to a spate of damage on the park over the last few weeks where young trees and out-buildings have been damaged. 

Sergeant Damien Shannon, who is in charge of Safer Neighbourhood policing in the area, said: “We have been conducting extra patrols on the park to try and deter any further damage. 

“On Friday evening our officers arrested a local 18 year-old man who was using foul and abusive language and he will be reported for summons to court. 

“We are determined to show that such anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated in a park that is widely used and enjoyed by the public.” 

If you have any information about the damage on the park please call Long Eaton Town Safer Neighbourhood Team on 101. Alternatively send them a message online by visiting the Contact Us section of our website here.
