Police in Newry, Mourne and Down, in partnership with the local Policing and Community Safety Partnership (PCSP), are focusing on reducing anti-social behaviour during October. psni50During the coming weeks police hope to raise awareness of the issues surrounding anti-social behaviour and what Police and partner organisations are doing in your area to address it. Officers will be conducting high visibility patrols to provide reassurance and, where needed, offer crime prevention information. Commander for Newry, Mourne and Down, Superintendent Simon Walls, said, “The term anti-social behaviour covers a wide range of unacceptable activity that blights the lives of many people on a daily basis. “It often leaves victims feeling helpless, desperate and with a seriously reduced quality of life. Terms such as ‘nuisance’, ‘disorder’ and ‘harassment’ are also often used to describe this type of behaviour. “Anti-social behaviour is an issue that we take seriously and we are fully committed to working in partnership with our PCSP, other partner agencies and community representatives to address it.” Superintendent Walls continued, “We are here to listen to community concerns and work with others to find a solution to any problems they may have. In many cases, this needs positive input from everyone in the community if a long lasting solution is to be found. “We will always exploit all opportunities to address anti-social behaviour and this work will include enforcement – making arrests – and education – helping our young people understand the impact this type of activity can have on the victim. “Anyone who has concerns around antisocial behaviour or witnesses antisocial behaviour in their area should contact police on 101,” he added. Cllr Mickey Larkin added, “The PCSP support any and all initiatives to tackle antisocial behaviour in our District, especially as we enter the build up towards Halloween. We will work together with our partners in the PSNI and NIFRS to address these incidents and work with those affected to ensure the impact is dealt with effectively.”
