Anti-Social Behaviour in Goole Town Centre
Goole Neighbourhood Policing Team continue to deliver high visibility reassurance patrols to deter potential anti-social behaviour in Goole Town Centre. We have also been working with local partner agencies and retailers to solve issues of anti-social behaviour in the area which led to a significant reduction in anti-social behaviour throughout the school hoildays. Anyone caught engaging in such activities will be dealt with jointly by Humberside Police and East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
Goole Town Centre has seen a dramatic reduction in ASB in Town Centre which has been a result of the ongoing work between Goole Neighbourhood Police Team and partner agencies. We have achieved this through a number of methods:
1) Environment changes - removal of benches and children's rides that analysis showed attracted youths to congregate around.
2) Dealing positively with group leaders through the Fairway process
3) Targeted hotspot patrolling with engagement
4) Working with partners to divert youths into other activities
Collectively the above have had a positive impact, the changes to the environment and working towards providing activities to youths in Goole is the "legacy" of this project. Developing activities with partners is part of the longer term plan and cannot be evaluated at this stage.
