Anti-social behaviour and Crime in the Town Centre continues to cause concern for residents of Knutsford.
As a result Knutsford Beat Team will focus much of their time on the Town Centre, particularly for events and in the Evening. We will continue to work with Partner Agencies to tackle issues before they become a problem. We have recently arrested a Male for Town Centre Burglaries but continue to do what we can to bring justice to victims and make the Town as safe as possible
Officers have and continue to make use of dispersal orders to disrupt issues as they occur. A yellow card scheme is in operation; this means that details of any young person found to be acting in an antisocial manner or reported as being linked to an incident of ASB are taken and recorded. Letters are issued to parents or guardians advising them of the young persons behavior and enforcement action is taken against repeat offenders.
If you are suffering from ASB or have been the victim of a Crime we urge you to report the matter to us on 101. Alternatively you can contact us on the below form or attend one of the local surgeries.
