Multi Agency Anti Social Behaviour Awareness Week in Crawley

Last week we had an intensification and awareness week for Anti-Social Behaviour.

In Crawley our community intensification days led to alcohol being removed from the street community who were given advice about aggressive begging and were moved on. 

We also worked alongside the Council, Open House and the Give Back Crawley initiative, to encourage people to donate money via Diverted Giving which ensures the proceeds go to providing the Street Community help, support, and supplies instead of giving it directly to begging.

In addition we increased our normal number of foot patrols to walk the key problematic areas which we identified through collating and analysing the information we have received from members of the public reporting in ASB issues, along with joint patrols with our local Community Wardens, and provided pop up ASB question and answer opportunities in the Memorial Gardens and Queens Square with local authorities and housing associations.

More than 200 children aged 10-17 have now been referred into REBOOT, an early intervention scheme launched by Police & Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne to tackle anti-social behaviour and curb serious violence across Sussex.

PCC Katy Bourne comments:

“Anti-social behaviour (ASB) is a societal problem which requires a robust partnership approach and positive policing. I want local residents to be reassured that Sussex Police is taking ASB seriously and acknowledging the negative and cumulative effect that it has on our communities."

“I’m aware from speaking extensively to the public that ASB causes immense distress and suffering to its victims and they do not regard it as ‘low-level crime’. I’m pleased to hear of targeted policing operations in hotspot areas and I encourage the public to keep reporting to the Police so they can feed that learning and intelligence into their activity."

“My REBOOT scheme is already beginning to divert hundreds of young people across Sussex away from this sort of behaviour. We are working hard with partners to identify those engaging in ASB and putting them through a proven 5-stage process."
