Message from Insp Mark Peasgood
We are aware that a small number of young people have been causing issues ranging from Criminal damage to anti-social behaviour on Orchard Park estate.
As a police service and local neighbourhood policing team, we are committed to tackling those responsible and making them accountable for their actions. This problem has been identified at an early stage and we are increasing patrols in the area not only to provide reassurance but to catch those responsible.
In conjunction with this we are visiting and speaking to all the local schools to highlight the dangers, impact and consequences of these actions. This is a continued commitment by my team and our wider partner agencies who are working tirelessly to deal with these issues as well as achieving the results that have been previously advertised.
What I would emphasise is that if you are a parent in the area please make sure you know what your children are doing as their actions may have consequences that impact on the wider family.
