Main article content
Officers at Ellesmere Port Local Policing Unit have organised activities to run over the summer holidays in a bid to reduce anti-social behaviour.
During this time without the support of School settings, young people can be exposed to an increase risk of county lines, criminal or sexual exploitation.
The activities which involve inflatable football and rugby, in different locations around Ellesmere Port, which are free of charge with snacks and refreshments provided – kindly donated by Aldi and Bookers. They will be supported by the Youth Federation and Ellesmere Port Rugby Club
Ellesmere Port Chief Inspector Paul Fegan said: “It is really important that we work together to prevent our young people from getting bored and slipping into crime or anti-social behaviour throughout the summer holidays.
“By organising the range of events over the summer period around Ellesmere Port and Neston we aim to reduce anti-social behaviour in a fun manner.
“Snacks and refreshments will be available at the activities, kindly donated by Aldi and Booker Wholesale, and there will be chances for children to break down barriers with the Local Policing Team and have some fun.
“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.”
