Positive action is being taken regarding this matter.
Your Neighbourhood Policing Team will be carrying out high visibility patrols to disperse any groups of youths hanging about particularly in the evenings and weekends. Officers will be patrolling Howdon Park, on the metro and in the area of the Community Centre to help resolve any concerns, that the publice have.

Your Neighbourhood team works closely with partner agencies to target the main offenders. The Officers will be taking details of anyone causing anti-social behaviour and where appropriate will take tenancy enforcement action in conjunction with housing providers. Any youth found acting in an anti- social way will have a letter sent home to their parents with a view to agreeing an acceptable behaviour agreement.

The Officers will be using new dispersal powers which enable them to ban an individual from the area for up to 48 hours.
