Day of Action
Posted 13th Nov 2018
A day of action was held on Friday 12th October. 8 officers and 2 PCSOs were in the town from 12pm and a dispersal zone was in place to help with ASB prevention. A bag of perfume was seized from a male selling them illegally, 3 abandoned vehicles were removed from Greenhill Way and 3 shoplifters were dispersed.
Test purchasing activity was initially going to target firework sales – however no stores were selling fireworks yet. Attempts to purchase alcohol and knives were made instead at 4 stores in the town, with no purchases being made, an excellent result from the staff/stores in question.
