ASB Crackdown

Alert message sent 29/09/2019 19:01:00

Information sent on behalf of West Yorkshire Police

Dear Citizen

Officers have been responding to reports of ASB in Shipley, Baildon, Menston and Burley.

Over 20 ASB sanctions have been issued to youths for poor behaviour in the last couple of weeks. Sanctions include yellow ASB warning letters served in front of parents, an ABC ( Anti-Social Behaviour Contract ) and one youth received a community resolution for public order when he bared his bottom to officers. He also swore at them, offered to fight them and threw stones at them. The abuse they recieved is not suitable to be posted publically, but included threats to one of the officers mother.

There are sanctions still to be served and evidence is still be gathered.

Parents have been offered support and have been very supportive of police action.

It is very important in the build up to Halloween, Mischief and Bonfire Night that ASB is tackled early.

Tackling anti-social behaviour is critical to building public confidence and if not tackled can blight the lives of people living within communities. Dealing with anti-social behaviour remains a key priority for us.

What we can do

• Acceptable Behaviour Contracts (ABCs) - where an individual recognises the effect their behaviour has on others and agrees to stop. This may be offered with support to help them do this.

• Criminal Behaviour Orders (CBOs) – court orders to tackle persistently anti-social individuals convicted of an offence. Breaching a CBO can lead to up to five years in prison and / or a fine of up to £5,000.

What you can do - get involved in your community

You can help us tackle crime and anti-social behaviour by:

• Setting up a Neighbourhood Watch in your area

• Passing on information to your neighbourhood officers including date/time the problem happens, descriptions of those involved and their vehicles, and how the incident has affected you.

• Find out about joining West Yorkshire Police as a volunteer or Special Constable?

• Keeping up to date with what's happening in your community - follow us on social networking pages.

Kind Regards

Sgt Terri Green
