Anti-Social Behaviour
There were no incidents of note for this week's bulletin.    I now need your help...... I urge you firstly not to take matters into your own hands and be mindful not to incite others to do so. Instead I ask you to look to assist us with our investigations by reporting incidents of anti social behaviour. In addition, in order for us to continue an investigation we need people to come forward with information such as description of suspects, photographs and CCTV footage. Although we do patrol hotspot areas, if we do not see this behaviour we need to rely on members of the public to aid us with both our investigations and the locations of where such problems are occurring. We are also unable to continue our enquiries if the victims do not support our investigation. Without lines of enquiries to pursue and no victim, we are having to file investigations.
