Coronavirus (COVID-19): the policing response and what you need to know

Anti-social Behaviour

Anti-social behaviour and uninsured motor vehicles are our priority as we enter the summer months. Uninsured vehicles pose a risk to not only other drivers but also members of the public so it is important that we get these off the road. Anti-Social Behaviour can have a significant impact on our communities and we will be utilising all our powers to ensure we tackle this head on for our communities.
