- EXTRA POLICE ON WEEKEND BEAT IN ANFIELD
FOUR extra police officers will be pounding the beat in Anfield in a bid to crack down on youth anti-social behaviour at weekends.
The move comes after months of work with local people, and organisations ranging from Liverpool City Council and Merseyside Police to schools, the drug and alcohol action team, Liverpool anti-social behaviour unit and registered property owners.
Whilst police are hitting the streets, work will also be going on 'behind the scenes' in schools and the community itself including action taken on the prevention of drug abuse. Liverpool City councillor Flo Clucas said,
"This is part of a much wider range of work we're doing in the area to help the vast majority of decent people who want to live in a safe and welcoming community.
Over the coming years there are big plans for the Anfield and Breckfield area, and this is only the very first step. It is not right that people put up with anti-social behaviour on their doorstep. We'll start in the schools to try and stop youngsters behaving in such a way, to prevent the problem."
Merseyside Police Neighbourhood Inspector for Anfield, Breckfield and Tuebrook, Mark Harrison, said,
"Officers in the neighbourhood, working together with partner agencies, are continually targeting anti social behaviour using various policing techniques and we have arrested and charged a number of people with anti social behaviour offences.
Anti social behaviour can seriously affect peoples lives and I want to stress to the minority of youths in the area who making peoples lives a misery that anti social behaviour will not be tolerated, officers will be working together with our partners in this initiative to continue and improve on successes we have already achieved."
