Crewe Policing Unit are taking part in a number of activities during Anti-Social Behaviour Awareness Week.
From 18 July to 22 July, the week, organised by community safety specialists Resolve, will see each Local Policing Unit (LPU) take part in a series of activities to tackle and address ASB.
Officers will be working with our partners at several pop-up surgeries around in and around the town and will be educating in schools and boxing clubs to provide education on what anti-social behaviour is and the effects that it can have on not just an individual but a local community.
Sergeant Steve Tandy who is leading on Anti-Social Behaviour Awareness Week for Crewe Local Policing Unit said: “We are working closely with our partners and local businesses in the town centre to prevent anti-social behaviour.
“We are also in contact with landlords in the area and have offered advice on how to protect their premises, including repairing a gate on Queensway, which would help to solve a number of anti-social behaviour issues in the area, involving youths trespassing to climb onto the roofs of the local businesses.
“ASB brings misery to the communities we work, day in and out to protect and it’s important that we work together with partners to educate and effectively deal with this behaviour.
“It is important for us to hear from those who may be affected by ASB, so that we can appropriately deter and disrupt this behaviour while signposting where to seek the best possible support.
“ASB can include things such as graffiti, littering and off-road motorcycles within the community and these disruptive activities create an environment where more serious crime can take place.
“Some of this behaviour may not seem all that serious to many people, but we know first-hand the detrimental impact it has to neighbourhoods, and I hope this week will show how we are all working together drive down the levels of ASB.
“I would like to continue to urge anyone who feels that they are or have been a victim of ASB to get in touch with Cheshire Constabulary by calling 101 or reporting it via our website.”
