Weekly Police Report

Weekly crime summary 11 – 18 August 2015

Great Yarmouth Police have been successful in using new powers to tackle Anti-Social Behaviour in the town. We have recently applied to Court and obtained two new Criminal Behaviour Orders for persistent offenders who were creating alcohol based anti-social behaviour.

Both offenders have caused issues within the town after consuming alcohol in the street and abusing residents and visitors. The orders now mean they can’t possess open containers of alcohol, consume alcohol in the street or cause harassment, alarm or distress to other members of the public and if they do they can be arrested there and then.

By using these powers we can tackle persistent offenders and restrict behaviour which impacts on all of us. If you witness anti-social behaviour, especially drink related, please report it using the 101 telephone number or in an emergency call 999.
