Police officers promise ‘zero tolerance’ on youths at Croespenmaen playing fields
Gwent Police have promised a “zero tolerance” approach to antisocial behaviour from youths hanging around Croespenmaen playing fields.
Officers have said they aim to target underage drinkers through patrols around the playing fields and aim to use the fields’ status as a no drinking zone to confiscate alcohol.
Jason Harris, Police Community Support Officer, said: “Our intention is to intervene at an early stage to prevent further issues and provide support through a multi-agency approach.
“We’ll be targeting individuals under the age of 18 who are drinking unsupervised in public places to reduce the impact of alcohol related crime and disorder on residents within our communities.
“We want to remind people that officers will take strong enforcement action to tackle this behaviour in Risca, in particular using powers to remove persons under 16 to a place of safety.”
