Anti-Social Behaviour
Tackling Anti-Social Behaviour
In Mid-January Arun Police were notified of an incident where a shopping trolley was thrown from one of the higher levels of the multi-storey car park by Morrisons in Bognor Regis.   Thankfully nobody was injured but we are acutely aware that the consequences could have been far more serious.
Following the incident local officers and staff have been diligently investigating and trying to identify those responsible.   Our efforts have so far resulted in the identification of two of the perpetrators who have bene interviewed.   The investigation continues.   We are hopeful that we will identify the others involved but in any case those responsible with be dealt with robustly.
Additional patrols in the area have been positively received by the local community and we remain steadfast in tackling anti-social behavior. 
Moped Seized
Following several complaints from residents in Angmering about mopeds being driven in an anti-social manner, over the weekend police attended as a result of calls and a moped was seized under Section 59 of the Police Reform Act.   The rider has previously been issued a warning using this legislation but continued to ride anti-socially.   Please report all incidents of anti-social driving/driving to Operation Crackdown.  http://www.operationcrackdown.org/
