Your local policing team
Local policing teams are groups of officers dedicated to serving the community. Teams are made up of officers based in the area, supported by additional officers from the wider area.
Teams work closely with local authorities, organisations, partners and residents to decide policing priorities. This helps teams find long-term solutions to local problems.
It has been reported that ASB from youths is still a major issue in the area and seen as the priority issue in the town centre.
High visibility patrols has been conducted in the affected areas, while ongoing work with partner agencies and engagement with the local schools continues. Alcohol seizures have been made, and relevant safeguarding work has been done as a result of this. Any youths causing ASB will be dealt with accordingly - with the help from Durham County Council's ASB team.
There has been a large number of reports regarding a number of youths acting in an anti-social manner by throwing objects at buildings and passing motor vehicles.
Incidents have greatly reduced since the PACT priority was created a number of months ago. Patrols are still continuing and any youths identified to be causing issues will be dealt with appropriately.
There are no meetings or event scheduled.
