The Summer school holiday period traditionally attracts an increase in youth related and general anti-social behaviour. Chester LPU has designated Saturday 22nd July 2017 until Tuesday 5th September 2017 inclusive (CW&C School Summer Holidays are 26th July until 1st September) to manage anti-social behaviour (ASB) reductions, problem solving approaches, community engagement and reassurance.
The types of behaviour displayed can range from low level nuisance to drinking, criminal damage and general low level public order incidents. In response to these foreseen issues Chester LPU will be implementing a multi-faceted partnership approach.
This partnership approach will build on the success of previous ASB operations over previous school holidays which resulted in sustained reductions in the numbers of ASB incidents reported to the Police and CW&C Community Safety Wardens.
The main focus of this summer operation will be a programme of community engagement activities to occupy young persons with a particular focus on those known to engage in anti-social behaviour. The engagement activities will include Panna football and youth service activities provided by CW&C and partner agencies.
Running parallel with the community engagement activities will be a robust policing response.
