Main article content
Runcorn police are continuing to tackle anti-social behaviour in Runcorn.
The Operation is continuing with dedicated officers on both Trident and the Busways each night all week through to Monday.
A dispersal will be in place all weekend again covering the same areas. This has been imposed under Section 34 of the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, for the Trident Retail Park and the busway. Dispersal orders make it an offence for anyone to return to a specific area for up to 48 hours.
The powers are in place from 6pm on Friday 11 February and will run until 6pm on Sunday 13 February.
Chief Inspector Andy Blizard said:
“Over the weekend there were no arrests, but there were two Dispersals Orders Issued. There were incidents on Friday Night with buses damaged, but nothing on Saturday or Sunday so we are seeing a decrease, but there was a report of youths on the busway last night so we will continue to crack down on this behaviour.
“I would urge anyone who witnesses or feels that they have been subjected to anti-social behaviour to report this to us by calling 101 or reporting it via our website so that we can investigate further.”
