Police will be highlighting the issue of anti-social behaviour (ASB) during a month-long focus on ASB. psni56Speaking to Newry Times, Supt Paul Reid, District Commander for Newry, Mourne and Down, said, “Whilst everyday Policing continues, I think this is an opportune time to shine a light on the work we are doing, along with partner organisations, on tackling and preventing anti-social behaviour in our communities. “Anti-social behaviour covers a wide range of unacceptable activity that causes harm to an individual, to their community or to their environment. “This could be an action by someone else that leaves you feeling alarmed, harassed or distressed. It also includes fear of crime or concern for public safety, public disorder or public nuisance. “Examples of anti-social behaviour include; Nuisance, rowdy or inconsiderate neighbours; Vandalism, graffiti and fly-posting; Street drinking; Environmental damage including littering, dumping of rubbish and abandonment of cars; Prostitution related activity; Begging and vagrancy; Fireworks misuse; and Inconsiderate or inappropriate use of vehicles.

In an emergency, call 999.”
