Police ‘aware’ of Warrenpoint anti-social behaviour

Local police have said that they are aware of issues of anti-social behaviour occurring in and around the Warrenpoint area and are encouraging anyone who has been affected by this behaviour to report the matter to police.

Speaking to Newry Times, Sergeant Paul Connolly said, “Officers will be carrying out additional patrols in the Warrenpoint area in the coming weeks and I would ask the public to report any incidents of antisocial behaviour to police at the earliest opportunity in a bid to help us prevent and detect crime.

“Police met with members of the local Policing and Community Safety Partnership with reference to the deployment of Community Safety Wardens in the area.



“We will continue to work with our partner agencies, local residents and community representatives to find solutions to any antisocial or criminal behaviour in the area.

He continued, “To those who think this kind of behaviour is acceptable – it is not.

“Where offences are identified we will deal with those involved in a robust manner.

“Anyone involved in anti-social behaviour or any activity that is outside the law could find themselves with a criminal record which could ultimately affect travel, education and employment opportunities in the future.



“So our message is very straightforward – be respectful of those around you, don’t become involved in antisocial or criminal activity. 

“If anyone has information on who is involved please call 101.  

“Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime,” Sergeant Connolly added.
