Motorcycle Disorder - We Asked

What concerns do you have about your neighbourhood?

Motorcycle Disorder - You Said

Nuisance and persistent motorcycle disorder and damage caused by this disorder particularly around the Elemore Lane Golf Club and Airedale Gardens in Hetton le Hole and Easington Lane.

Motorcycle Disorder - We Did

The police mounted a plain clothes operation at the golf club and in the surrounding streets over a number of weeks. During this time they were able to identify a number of persistent offenders who have had their bikes seized and crushed and one offender has been arrested. This operation has led to a decrease in reports of this type of behaviour in that area however the police will continue to monitor the situation and will deal robustly with anyone committing further offences.

Dispersal zones have been created at peak times.  This gives Police powers to remove the youths and prevent them from returning within 24 hours.

Anti Social Behaviour letters are sent out to parents.  Repeat offenders are dealt with by anti Social Behaviour legislation, addressing their behaviour.

We are working closely with our partners. Home visits are conducted with the Local authoirty or ASB Officers from Housing Providers.  Where offenders persist, warning notices are served and tenancies can be put at risk.

Target patrols at peak times.
