Anti-social behaviour continues in the Anderson Park area of Coleraine

1 Mins read

Members of the Coleraine Neighbourhood team and the Local Policing Team joined forces tonight to prevent anti-social behaviour in the Anderson Park area of Coleraine.

A PSNI spokesperson said “A number of youths have been searched and details taken, with alcohol and drugs seized.”

Inspector Shaw said that the operation was organised in light of continued reports of residents. “It’s a disgrace that those who live locally have to put up with this, these young people have been brought in by their parents from Articlave and Portrush etc, dropped off and left to run the streets causing nuisance.

We will be doing more of this and any detected offences will be dealt with. I have spoken to the local people who are sitting in fear of fireworks being thrown, stones being thrown and having to take verbal abuse from kids as young as 12 and 13.”

Sgt Burns said “As part of our continued commitment to tackling anti-social behaviour in Anderson Park we just stopped and searched a number of youths in the area. We located a number of worrying items in the vicinity specifically a bong and a knife.

We will continue to tackle anti social behaviour and keep Coleraine safe.”
