Police crackdown on Brixington anti-social behaviour

Anti-social behaviour in Brixington has prompted the police to step up patrols in the area, in a bid to stamp out the problem before it escalates. The police hope the public will become the ears and eyes of the community, reporting any nuisance behaviour.

Police patrols are being stepped up in Brixington following an increase in reports of anti-social behaviour.

Officers said groups of youths have been spotted in Brixington recreational park, acting ‘loud and disorderly’.

The police said they also have evidence underage drinking is taking place in the park – and are keen to stamp it out before it escalates.

Highly-visible patrols have been set up in a bid to deter the culprits.

Officers at Exmouth are appealing to the public to help them in their quest to crackdown on the nuisance behaviour.

Police community support officer Chris Ball said as well as the highly-visible patrols, he was also offering reassurance to residents and hoped the community would back the police.

He urged parents to be aware of their children’s whereabouts, what they were doing, who they were with – and to check on them frequently.

He said: “There is an increase in litter including broken glass and broken bottles in the play area and park that is used by children and dog walkers.

“The police are reducing the problem by positively policing the area and identifying those persons responsible and using the anti social behaviour escalation process for any substantive offences and drunkenness.”

Any anti-social behaviour seen by the public in the park at any time should be reported on 08452 777 444, quoting crime reference number KE/10/1860.
