Newark police respond to anti-social behaviour concerns
Numerous reports of anti-social behaviour in Newark have been reported to police officers.
The officers from Nottinghamshire Police have engaged with the public on recent patrols and have listened to their concerns.
A number of issues, including the parking and unsafe load of commercial vehicles, wildlife crime and wanton and furious cycling were mentioned.
The force said: "Officers continue to work on the anti-social behaviour project gathering evidence against people acting in an unsocial manner and will issue acceptable behaviour contracts to more people if it continues.
"Ultimately, court orders and tenancy action could be taken against persistent offenders.
"We will continue to address the issues about there being a lack of activities for youths through community engagement and sign posting to existing groups who provide opportunities to become involved in exciting and challenging activities to learn skills, socialise and broaden horizons."
Newark Police have looked to the public for ideas to compile a list of youth activities in the town in its drive to tackle anti-social behaviour.
Officers said there were a plethora of projects available in Newark, which they would like to help promote to youngsters so they can develop skills and find interests.
As well as scouring the internet and engaging with council youth services, police are asking if any youth groups, sports teams, youth organisations or other groups with a youth or children's section would contact them with details of days and times they meet — as well as websites or contact details and the age ranges catered for.
