POLICE have stepped up their patrols on a coastal road amid a spate of anti-social behavior and criminal damage.
Arun Police officers have increased their presence in and around the promenade in Felpham to combat the problem.
“Local residents have brought to our attention a spate of anti-social behavior and criminal damage along the promenade in Felpham,” a police spokesman said.
“We have increased patrols in this area along with a number of other current hotspots throughout the district.
“If you know that locations need to be added to the list, please let us know by reporting to us through our website.”
Last week officers from Brighton and Hove Police conducted patrols in and around Norfolk Square following reports of anti-social behaviour.
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.”
Meanwhile, police have also been stepping up foot patrols in and around Linden Park in Littlehampton and the rock gardens in Preston Park in Brighton in recent weeks.
