Police are stepping up patrols in Brighton amid anti-social behaviour

POLICE have stepped up their patrols on a city center street amid increased reports of anti-social behaviour.

Brighton and Hove Police officers have increased their presence in and around Western Road, Western Terrace and Norfolk Square to combat the problem.

The targeted patrols follow an increase in reports made to the police by members of the public.

“Their local community police officers (PCSOs) conducted targeted high-visibility patrols on Western Road, Western Terrace and Norfolk Square amid increased reports of anti-social behavior and driving,” a police spokesman said.

“We will continue to patrol these areas and others on Regency Station.

“If we know about it, we can do something about it! When we receive reports of anti-social behavior or issues in a particular area, we can and will adjust our patrols accordingly.

“You can call online or 101, but in an emergency it’s always 999.”

Police also conducted patrols in a Norfolk square earlier this month.

While on patrol, officers from the police community arrested two people for drinking in a PSPO (Public Spaces Protection Order) area set up in Norfolk Square.

“PSPOs are designed to combat anti-social behavior or activities in a specific location that negatively impact a community,” a police spokesman said.

“They set conditions and restrictions on people using a regulated area and give police and local authorities additional powers to deal with specific activities.

“Please report anti-social behavior or suspicious activity to us on 101 or online, but of course dial 999 in an emergency.”

Last month Brighton and Hove Police also carried out foot patrols by the sea in St Aubyns, Hove, to tackle bad behaviour.

Meanwhile, police were also stepping up foot patrols in and around Linden Park in Littlehampton and the rock gardens in Preston Park in Brighton.
