Police Tackle Anti-Social Behaviour in Brentford
of under 16s to control fear of crime
As a result of consultation with the London Borough Council and Hounslow Homes, the police in Hounslow have been able to compile compelling intelligence identifying target areas and roads in which people have gathered to intimidate and commit acts of anti-social behaviour towards residents and businesses. This behaviour has taken place both during the day and night into the early hours of the morning.
Inspector Lindsey Hannigan at Brentford said:
"The area has suffered from persistent problems of groups engaging in acts of vandalism, graffiti, verbal abuse and unacceptable behaviour towards local residents and businesses. This has severely affected the quality of people's everyday lives.
Posters are on display in the relevant area, roads and shops. Local residents will be receiving literature explaining the Dispersal posters. A poster and map will also be available for viewing at Brentford Police Station. We encourage the support of the local community in helping us to use these powers by contacting the local police with concerns."
Anyone with concerns relating to Anti-Social behaviour in Hounslow, and in particular in the prescribed areas of Busch Corner, London Road between Spur Road and Beech Avenue and all roads within the Trees Estate, Brentford, can contact Hounslow police on 0208 247 5989.
