Police in Newry, Mourne & Down 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 and to provide reassurance and, where needed, offer crime prevention information. Commander for Newry, Mourne & Down, Superintendent Paul Reid, 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 the Police Service takes seriously and is fully committed to working in partnership with both statutory agencies and community representatives to address,” he 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.
