Over the past few months we have seen an increase in the amount of calls relating to youth in the area of Sea Mills, mainly on the square and the surrounding areas. These youths are causing Harassment, Alarm and Distress to the residents.
It has been reported to us that these youths are responsibly for setting alight bins and also causing criminal damage in the local area.
I would like to reassure the residents that the beat team will be conducted targeted patrols in the area and work is under way to identify these youths and deal with offences appropriately.
I would encourage residents who are effect by the increase of Anti-Social Behaviour by these youths to call 999 if the incident is in progress or report past incidents via 101.

We are still getting calls in and around the Sea Mills area regarding youths causing ASB.
your local neighbourhood team have been able to identify a few of these youths and are working together with our ASB team to prevent further offences occurring.
We would encourage anyone who has been effected by ASB to call the police on 999 if the incident is in progress or 101 to report an incident which has happened in the past. Reporting such incidents allows us to build a pattern of behaviour and in response we are able to target our patrols around ASB hotspots.
