5 Teens issued with Acceptable Behaviour Contracts in Crosby

MERSEYSIDE Police Officers have been working in conjunction with Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service (MFRS) in investigating a series of suspected arson incidents in the Rimrose Valley area of Crosby area earlier this month. Following enquiries, a group of teenagers aged between 13 and 15 have been identified and issued with Acceptable Behaviour Contracts (ABCs). This means that Officers have spoken to appropriate adults and agreed a course of action with the teenagers. Officers from the local Community Policing Team will continue to monitor the area and will also robustly deal with any breaches of these ABCs.

Station Manager Paul Kay, Arson Reduction Co-ordinator for Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service, said:- "Arson is a serious criminal offence which puts people's lives at risk, causes damage to homes, businesses and community facilities and impacts on wildlife and the environment. It can range from mindless criminal damage to a deliberately targeted attack but, either way, the potentially deadly consequences remain the same. If fire appliances are called out to deliberate fires this may delay the response to other emergencies, which could endanger lives elsewhere. We want to make people aware that deliberately setting fires in a public place is arson and, if caught, those responsible may face legal action."

Local Policing Superintendent Matt Boyle said:- "This issue was understandably causing worry and distress to the people of  Crosby and following some great partnership work involving Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service (MFRS) and ourselves, action has been taken, with the full support of the families of those involved. I would like to emphasise how seriously we treat suspected arson and all anti social behaviour, and any information will be acted upon, so contact us early on and we can deal quickly and effectively with any problems. ABCs are an early intervention which we will look to pursue against individuals who are perceived to be engaging in anti social behaviour. It allows people to cease and change certain activities they are involved in. Breaches of the order will lead to warnings and if necessary further, more serious action."

Anyone with information on anti social behaviour is asked to contact:- 101 or you can also call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously and for free, on:- 0800 555 111 or report online.
