Dispersal order authorised for part of Derby following reports of disorder

Alert message sent 20/07/2020 15:54:00

Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Constabulary

We have placed a dispersal order on a part of Derby after reports of public disorder in the area.

The action has been taken after we have attended several reports of anti-social behaviour in the Derwent part of Derby today, Monday, 20 July.

The area (shown on the attached map) is between Nottingham Road, Wiltshire Road,  Hampshire Road, and The Racecourse, specifically at the the junction of Beufort Street and Pembroke Street, Derby.

Sergeant Rachel Fowkes, who is in charge of Safer Neighbourhood policing in the area, said: “At the moment we are not sure of the reason behind the reports of disorder and this is something we are actively investigating.

“This order allows us to protect the community by enabling us to ask anyone to leave the area if we feel they are involved in disorder or anti-social behaviour.

“Anyone who refuses to leave will commit an offence and maybe arrested.

“This type of behaviour will not be tolerated.”

The order, authorised under the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, will be in place from 2.51pm today until the same time on Wednesday, 22 July when the situation will be reviewed.
