Commissioner out on the beat as officers tackle ASB in Chorley

During the visit, which took place during Neighbourhood Policing Week, the Commissioner saw first hand how the neighbourhood team is getting tough on ASB and those who commit it, including the use of dispersal orders.

The visit was held the same day as Mr Snowden’s third and final ASB Summit, the summits called upon Lancashire’s senior leaders and key partners to discuss how collectively they can tackle ASB.

Staff from Chorley Youth Zone Inspire also joined the Neighbourhood Policing Team on the beat, helping officers to engage with young people, many of whom they had existing relationships with.

Inspire Youth Zone have recently been awarded £10K funding from the Commissioner’s ‘Safer Lancashire Neighbourhoods Fund’ to support their ‘Hard Hitters’ programme, seeking to address ASB in Chorley by engaging young people in an internal boxing group.

Following the visit, Lancashire Police and Crime Commissioner Andrew Snowden said:

“ASB continues to be the top priority for the residents of Lancashire, and I always welcome the opportunity to see how local teams are proactively working to combat issues.

“Partnership working is something I cannot stress the need for enough, whilst policing does and will continue to play a vital role in tackling ASB, the need for support and involvement from partnership organisations that can deter and prevent the type of behaviour we see all too often on our streets and in communities is paramount.

“As I continue to lead the fight against crime, I remain committed to backing the Chief Constable with the support and resources he needs to go after offenders, protect the public and ensure residents, here in Chorley and across the county, feel safer.”
