Southport Costa Coffee Shop window smashed

DESPITE the increased Policing in Southport Town Center, as a 48 hour dispersal zone was in place following a huge increase in reports of anti-social behaviour, the new window of the Costa Coffee Shop on Lord Street was smashed. It is thought that the incident happened sometime ober night, between 9pm, on Saturday, 19 March 2016 to 7am, on Sunday, 20 March 2016. Just before the 48 hour dispersal zone came into effect on the Friday, Southport Neighbourhood Inspector Graham Fisher told us:- "We are working with local businesses and the Council to identify offenders and take the appropriate action. These zones are not about bothering people, young or old, who are going about their legitimate daily business. However, we will be targeting people who are intent on causing anti-social behaviour or criminal damage, especially if they are gathering in large groups, which can be intimidating to others. These issues will of course be closely monitored and further dispersals will be authorised if appropriate. I welcome the information provided to us so far from the local community, and we will continue to respond to their concerns, to allow us to focus our resources on the right areas." Sadly, these acts of anti social behaviour and criminal damage are destroying small businesses in the area and the Towns image. No matter how many extra patrols and the use of temporary dispersal zones, with out public help, it can't stop it. Members of the community with any information are encouraged to speak with officers in the area, their dedicated Neighbourhood Team on:- 0151 777 3442, or call:- 101. Anyone with information who does not wish to speak with us directly can call Crimestoppers anonymously on:- 0800 555 111. Please let the Police know of any areas that groups are congregating, causing nuisance and damage so we can put a stop to this activity!
