Ruston Road and
PC Williams spoke to complainants first thing and advised them on what the Neighbourhood Policing Team have been doing at the location to resolve Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB).
This has involved increased patrols at location at relevant times from themselves and other officers. They have used the CCTV van on several occasions to assist on identifying youths involved and also been to the 2 primary schools and advised the headteachers of ASB at location.
With all this they have done at the location ASB did decrease quite significantly in the area.
Due to receiving several calls for the ASB on Sunday evening PC Williams and PCSO Lewis extended there shift for Monday evening and conducted a mini operation at the Marcroft estate with the use of the CCTV van.
