PCSP taking steps to address anti-social behaviour in Limavady
Wed, March 16, 2022
Causeway Coast and Glens Policing and Community Safety Partnership wants to reassure residents of Limavady following a spate of anti-social behaviour.
The PCSP is working closely with the PSNI and other stakeholders to address the problem, which has developed in recent weeks.
PCSP Chairperson Councillor Darryl Wilson said: “It is disappointing for residents and businesses in Limavady that a minority in the town are intent on causing damage and fear.
“The PCSP is taking the concerns that have been shared with us very seriously. We have recently targeted our resources to remove graffiti from public spaces and we are liaising with the PSNI as part of an ongoing multi-agency approach.
“Later this month, a planned PCSP Public Meeting will take place in Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre and it will provide all of us with a timely opportunity to discuss anti-social behaviour and any other matters related to policing and community safety.
“By working together, we can address the issues which are detracting from all of our efforts to ensure Limavady and the wider Borough remains a safe and welcoming place for everyone.”
PSNI Neighbour Inspector Colin Shaw added: “We have seen an increase in reports of anti-social behaviour in Limavady, including graffiti and criminal damage to property.
“We are focusing our patrolling to provide reassurance to the local community and working with our partners to prevent further incidents. The vast majority of young people recognise the importance of having respect for others and their property however we would ask parents and guardians to make sure their son or daughter isn’t involved in this type of behaviour.”
The PCSP public meeting will take place in Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre in Limavady on Wednesday 30th March at 7pm (tea and coffee available from 6.30pm). The main theme of the meeting is drugs and policing.
There will be an opportunity to put forward questions on the night, or alternatively you can submit a written question in advance by emailing email@example.com.
