Dispersal order in place for Heanor and Langley Mill
Main article content
A dispersal order has been put in place for the next 48 hours in Heanor, Langley Mill and the surrounding area.
The order will be in place for 48 hours in the area pictured following a series of incidents of anti-social behaviour and disorder that have been reported.
The order runs from 5pm on Thursday 21 April to 5pm on Saturday 23 April – and allows police to disperse people from the stated areas, and if they are involved in instances of anti-social behaviour, take anyone under 16 back to their home.
A dispersal order can only be authorised for a maximum period of 48 hours but at the point of expiry, we will carry out an assessment and a further period of up to 48 hours can be authorised if necessary.
PCSO Supervisor Jenny Lorimer, of the Heanor and Langley Mill Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “We have received a number of reports from members of the public regarding anti-social behaviour and disorder in the Heanor and Langley Mill areas
“This dispersal order will provide officers with the power to deal with any issues and return anyone under 16 back to their home.
“Our team will be carrying out high visibility patrols in the area and we hope that our presence will have an impact on any disorder and anti-social behaviour.”
