Local Neighbourhood Chief Inspector Lee Edwards said: “This weekend our North Hull teams will be out and about across Bransholme to help keep you safe and we are encouraging anyone with any concerns to speak to us.
“The team are really proactive, working closely with the businesses in the area to ensure that we have all of the available evidence to take action against anyone found behaving antisocially or committing crime.
“Where we have evidence that an offence has been committed we carefully assess the situation, working with other organisation where appropriate, to find the best solution for all involved. There are a number of options available to us, from dispersal notices through to arrests and convictions.
“We have recently supported the North Point Shopping Centre in their decision to issue a number of banning orders to young people, preventing them from attending the shopping centre and committing anti-social behaviour. As part of this process, officers visit the parents of the young person involved to speak to them about their child’s behaviour.
“I appreciate the impact that antisocial behaviour can have on a community and I want to offer my reassurance that we will continue doing everything we can to make sure that this stays a great place to live, work and visit.
“My team regularly patrol in the area and have been spending more time there to act as a deterrent this week. We will continue this in the coming days and I recommend anyone with any questions or concerns to speak to an officer.
“We also run regular surgeries where we invite people to come along and chat to an officer. You can see when these are, along with updates from the local team on our web page: https://www.humberside.police.uk/area/hull-north
“I would also recommend following our local Facebook and Twitter pages for regular updates about what we are doing @HumberbeatHULL.
“If you have any information about incidents please call us on our non-emergency 101 line or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
“If there’s a crime in progress or it is an emergency always call 999.”
