Alert message sent 05/12/2019 10:18:00

Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Constabulary

Officers from our Alvaston Safer Neighbourhood Team dealing with anti-social behaviour on the local canal path have issued banning orders on local youths.

The team have increased their patrols on the path that runs between Harvey Road and London Road, having received numerous complaints and concerns from local residents.

Two Criminal Behaviour Orders (CBO) have been placed on a 15 and 14 year-old from the Alvaston area, that prevents them from going on the canal path or local area.

The team have worked closely with Derby City Council to issue the order to the two youths to help reduce the anti-social behaviour in the area. It is an offence to breach the terms of the CBO and would lead to arrest and if found guilty a court could impose a maximum sentence of five years imprisonment.

A dispersal order has also been put in place for the area shown on the map, that gives the officers the power to remove persons under the age of 16 to their place of residence and request to surrender items used to harass, alarm or distress members of the public.

PC Toni Rudd, from the team, said: “We have received numerous complaints about the behaviour of young people on the canal path and are determined to stamp it out.

“Patrols have been increased and we are taking positive action against the ring-leaders

“We will continue the action until the anti-social behaviour stops.”
