Update Regarding Antisocial Behaviour in Saltburn

Neighbourhood officers from Saltburn have been working extremely hard to tackle issues of antisocial behaviour around the areas of Valley Gardens, Milton Street, Station Square, Dundas Street and Sainsbury’s.

Over the last week, additional officers have patrolled the area and a dispersal order was put in place from the evening of Monday 9th April to Wednesday 11th April. The dispersal order was deemed successful as no youths were given a dispersal notice.

 Another dispersal order will also be put in place for 48 hours beginning at 5pm today, aimed at groups of three or more youths hanging around in these areas. It will cover the areas of Marine Parade, Milton Street, Zetland Terrace, Marske Road, Windsor Road, Glenside and Saltburn Road.

Anyone found to be committing offences in these areas will be issued with a notice which means that they cannot re-enter the specified areas for a specific length of time, therefore reducing the risk of them re-offending in the area.

In addition to the extra patrols and the dispersal orders, a community meeting was held in Saltburn on Wednesday night which officers attended and spoke with members of the local community. This provided local people with the chance to speak with Chief Constable Mike Veale, Police and Crime Commissioner Barry Coppinger, Inspector Fay Cole and Sergeant Jon Hutchinson.

The public were able to have questions answered and were able to raise their concerns in relation to issues around antisocial behaviour. Officers have reassured the community that they are focused on tackling antisocial behaviour and they will be working closely with partner agencies such as Trading Standards, the local authority and Youth Prevision to resolve the issues.

Police are also planning on attending secondary schools in Saltburn and across Redcar and Cleveland to discuss antisocial behaviour and the affects that it has on people and local communities.
