What is a propagation zone?

The disbandment order falls under Section 35 of the Anti-Social Behavior Act 2014, which gives police officers and traffic wardens the power in support of the community to direct anyone they suspect of causing offence, harassment or anti-social behavior towards members of the police force or likely to cause public to leave a designated area and not return for up to 48 hours.

Under the legislation, officers have the power to confiscate any item used in the commission of antisocial behavior

If someone was previously ordered by an officer to leave the area but then returns, an offense would be committed for which they can ultimately be arrested.

“Fires started and serious damage to vehicles was caused”

Community Inspector Stacey Pope said: “Following multiple reports of anti-social behavior and criminal harm between large groups of teenage girls and boys in the area, a dispersal zone has been approved, giving officers additional powers to deal with the issues. A total of eight dissolution notices were issued, which are being followed up by Council partners to review contracts of acceptable conduct.

“Recent incidents include fires in the Duckeries and serious damage to a police bus, taxi and patrol car in Fleet Lane. Luckily no one was injured and our officers handled these incidents safely

“This behavior will not be tolerated and additional officers will remain in the area to disperse groups causing such incidents and to reassure the vast majority of law-abiding people in the area.”

“Partners and community groups continue to do outreach and offer a range of activities including boxing, judu, walks and gym passes for everyone to participate. Measures will be taken to stop reckless acts of anti-social behavior to ensure everyone can feel safe where they work or visit.

“Anyone who returns to the area during the spread zone can be arrested.

“Our officers have received full details of those affected and will be planning any follow-up visits to homes, ASB officers and possibly social services this week.”

“We hope these actions demonstrate how seriously we take all reports of criminal harm, disorder and antisocial behavior in our community and that our focus is on preventing and detecting crime to protect residents.”

“If you witness anti-social behavior or have any information about such incidents, please contact or speak to our officers.”
