Officers from the Chapel and Chinley Safer Neighbourhood Team will be heading out on the beat to clamp down on anti-social behaviour over the summer months.

This follows a priority meeting yesterday, Monday, August 15, where PCSO Karen Green listened to the views of local people to help set their policing priorities for the following months.

The policing team, made up of Sergeant Denis Murphy, PC Graham Mason, and PCSO Karen Green will be heading out into the community to deter any anti-social behaviour, particularly around the area of Chapel Memorial Park. This includes groups of youths acting anti-socially, leaving litter behind and causing a noise nuisance to people living nearby.

The Safer Neighbourhood officers will be speaking to youngsters about the importance of being courteous to people living in the town and clearing up after themselves whilst still enjoying meeting with friends and making the most of the lighter nights.

The team will be engaging with the youths to advise them about the consequences of anti-social behaviour and the impact that their behaviour can have on residents living close by.
