You Said: Anti-social use of e-Scooters and off-road motorbikes
Issued 20 September 2021
We are giving presentations in schools and sending leaflets and letters to parents highlighting the illegality of e-scooters. This has also been passed to our Child Centred Policing Team to provide focussed input at relevant local youth groups.
Operation ENDORSE launched to identify, target and deal with these subjects robustly and follow up any success with a social media campaign outlining our commitment to reducing ASB and keeping the public safe.
Please report any antisocial or illegal use of off road vehicles or e-scooters so we know where this is occurring and who to target. If you do not know who is responsible for this then a description of the person and the vehicle with details of where they were riding will be sufficient.
A youth from Cleator Moor has been issued with an Acceptable Behaviour Contract to prevent further use of an e-scooter.
Visits have been made to identified offenders to advise and warn them not to use off road motorbikes illegally.
Letter drops seeking information from local residents have been delivered to a number of streets identified as hot spot areas.
Copeland Proactive team have seized 4 E-Scooters this month, which were being used illegally on the road without insurance.
As we continue to receive complaints around the use of E-Scooters in the area we will continue to target the illegal use of them.

You Said: Youth related Anti-social behaviour in Cleator Moor
Issued 20 October 2021
PCSO Hollie Huck has worked closely with the local Council in Cleator Moor, the library located in the square, and Better at the Cleator Moor activity centre to tackle youth anti-social behaviour. This has resulted in engagement with multiple groups of young people, parents and community groups. It has unfortunately been identified that a small number of young people were causing anti-social behaviour which has resulted in further Police involvement with our child Centred Policing Team and banning notices from the Library.
Talks and advice have been given by our officers to targeted youths to prevent a re-occurrence of issues.
Officer have conducted home visits to some of the youths concerned in order to address the issue and offer advice and warnings with legal guardians present.
Patrols increased in the area youths stopped ands details taken, letters and home visits conducted. We will continue to do this and any youth located positive action will be taken.
During this month we will be providing dedicated patrols for the festive night-time economy as part of Operation Elf. We will also be supporting the Don’t drink and drive Campaign with officers carrying out stop checks on vehicles.
