Partners work together to reduce Anti-Social Behaviour

In recent weeks Sedgefield has seen a dramatic rise in numbers of youths gathering in the village on Friday and Saturday nights. Police have previously used dispersal powers to move groups of youths from areas where their presence is alarming residents. Whilst there has been some instances of minor criminal damage, arranged fights and one instance whereby a 13 year old female was arrested in possession of a knife, the vast majority of youths are well behaved and are not committing offences. It is clear that numbers have increased as youths are travelling from towns and villages far and wide to meet friends in Sedgefield. Many are dropped off by parents who view Sedgefield as a safe place to gather. It is certainly true that Sedgefield is a safe and nice place to live and visit. In response to resident’s concerns regarding the large numbers of youths a multi-agency meeting was held at Sedgefield Parish Hall on Thursday 19th April 2018. The photograph above shows some of those who attended.
