Watchet and Williton have over the last couple of months, experienced groups of youths being involved in Anti-social behaviour and low-level criminal behaviour.
With extra officers being utilised, and with the added support of our Special Constables, we have been able to step up our foot patrols of target areas, and at specific times, to engage with these youths and disrupt their behaviour. This extra workforce has been most welcome and will continue as the evenings draw out.
Parents and carers need to know where their young people are, who they are with, and what they are up to at all times. Please do not leave your youngsters to be the responsibility of the Community or Police- we will help and support- but they are your responsibility.
