Great Yarmouth Operational Partnership Team issue first closure order

Officers from the Great Yarmouth Operational Partnership Team (OPT) have issued their first closure order on a property after receiving numerous complaints of Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB).

At 1.30pm yesterday officers carried out the closure order, which was granted by Great Yarmouth Magistrates Court, at 63 Granville Road.

Sergeant Julie Johnson, from the OPT, said: “This property posed a potential risk to the local community. What was particularly worrying in this case was the close proximity to a school. We had received complaints of hypodermic needles being found in the area and had concerns for the children and residents.

I hope this robust police action shows that ASB will not be tolerated and shows, by working with our partners, we have the powers to tackle persistent offenders. Should the occupants return whilst this order is in place they will be arrested.”

The order will last for three months from the date of issue and the OPT will be continuing work to stop these issues from happening again.
