    Issue was set on Thursday, April 6
    • You said there were problems with youth related ASB in the town centre .

To combat this we have undertaken a Streetsafe, highlighted it as a priority to patrols, conducted static patrols in the area and undertaken work to identify the individuals causing ASB and making sure they face a consequence for their actions.
    • Deployed Police Officers and Community Support Officers to carry out foot patrols around the relevant areas at key times
