Middlesbrough police have issued dispersal orders across the town to stop anti-social behaviour
POLICE have issued dispersal orders across a North-East town in an attempt to counter anti-social behaviour.
The orders cover swathes of Middlesbrough, including Park End, Beckfield, Thorntree and Brambles Farm, North Ormesby, Easterside and Marton Manor, Eastbourne buildings and Coulby Newham and will last all October.
Middlesbrough’s Neighbourhood Chief Inspector Dave Lamplough said: “Dispersal orders are another tool which we can use to combat antisocial behaviour and protect our local communities. They are something which we use over particular seasonal periods and they have been very effective in the past.”
A dispersal order gives officers the power to disperse a group of two or more people in a public place who are believed to behaving in a way which could be intimidating or causing distress to members of the public.
Anyone who experiences antisocial behaviour is asked to contact police on 101.
