Anti Social Behaviour - Sainsburys Supermarket.
We understand that there have been some ongoing concerns in respect of antisocial behaviour being caused by groups of youths reportedly congregating at Sainsbury’s Supermarket, Scunthorpe.
We have been working closely with local partners to identify those responsible while also seeing that changes are made to the local environment so as to design out the problems.
We are also proud to share that we have been working with Sainsburys who are working hard to engage with those responsible and support activities to divert them away from such behaviour.
When suspects have been identified, proportionate action is being taken to hold them to account while also diverting them away from causing further issues.
Working with colleagues from the Office and Police & Crime Commissioner for Humberside, we are excited to see the arrival of Tommy Coyle’s Box Clever Project - a new initiative to engage with young people across Scunthorpe. This will see a double-decker bus be parked in Sainsburys Car Park and bring healthy and positive activities to communities to Scunthorpe Town Centre including a kitted out gym and a dedicated youth space. Tommy and his team will be working alongside partners from young peoples’ services to deliver sports activities, arts, craft, music, as well as offering advice on life choices.
