Throughout April, we are to continue our high visibility patrols of the Pocklington Town Centre area to deter potential anti-social behaviour.
These patrols include regular checks on peripheral areas at Pocklington Infants’ School, Maxwell Road (periodic reports of criminal damage and youths causing annoyance), All Saints Church (periodic reports of anti-social behaviour on an evening) and town car parks. Criminal offenders will be challenged robustly, arrested or reported for summons.
Penalty Notices for Disorder or warning letters may be used in appropriate cases however, those who offend should expect to be arrested and dealt with if their anti social behaviour amounts to criminal offending. The exercise of discretion should not be expected.
Officers will be continuing patrols in Stamford Bridge and the Viking Road car park.
Anyone caught engaging in anti-social behaviour will be dealt with under the FAIRWAY process jointly with East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
It is unlikely that any discretion will be shown.
Also drivers using their cars to cause alarm or distress will be considered for warnings and possible seizure of their vehicles under Section 59 of the Police Reform Act.
Officers will also continue patrols in the areas of Scaife Garth and Sherbuttgate due to reports of low level anti-social behaviour.
Anyone caught engaging in such activities will be dealt with jointly with the East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
