The POLICE have been patrolling a city center square following reports of anti-social behaviour.
Brighton and Hove Police officers have increased their presence in and around Norfolk Square to combat the problem.
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.”
Brighton and Hove Police also conducted seafront foot patrols last month to tackle bad behaviour.
Officers increased their presence in and around St Aubyns in Hove following reports of anti-social behavior in the area.
Meanwhile, police were also stepping up foot patrols in and around Linden Park in Littlehampton and the rock gardens in Preston Park in Brighton.
