Dozens of calls to Derby house ends in trio being evicted
Main article content
Three people from a house in Derby, that was at the centre of dozens of calls to the police, have been evicted.
Between February 2020 and October 2021, the force was called to more than 75 incidents at a house in Kemble Place, Alvaston.
The incidents included anti-social behaviour, public order incidents and drug dealing – as well as racial abuse of other residents in the street.
The three people, a woman and her two sons, were all served community protection notices in an attempt to curb their behaviour, however, these were unsuccessful.
Officers therefore took the next step in gaining a court order to have the tenants evicted from the property, which was granted, and the house has now been boarded up.
Sergeant Lauren Siddall, who leads the Alvaston safer neighbourhood team, said: “Over the course of nearly 20 months the three people at this address have caused a number of serious issues for their neighbours – and have placed a serious burden on officer’s time.
“To evict people from their home is an absolute last resort, sadly that was the situation that we were left with and that ultimate sanction has been taken.
“I know that as a policing team we are pleased to have successfully obtained and executed the order and put a stop to the problem; but I am sure this will be nothing in comparison to how the other residents in, and around, Kemble Place must be feeling.
“We are keenly aware of the impact that households like this can have on a community and I would urge anyone who is facing similar issues to contact the force and report the problems. I hope that this action sends a clear message to perpetrators of anti-social behaviour in that we can and will take action if you or your household engage in behaviour like this”
“In cases like this having a body of evidence to show the scale of the issue means that positive action can be taken as soon as possible.”
