Crackdown on street drinkers and anti-social behaviour

When we met with Kent Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Scott earlier this year, our local community and high street businesses called for a crackdown on street drinking and antisocial behaviour in the town centre.

So it's fantastic to see that thanks to great work from Kent Police and Dover District Council, Operation Urban is making a real difference.

They report that there have been three arrests and two people have been charged. One person was charged with public order offences, and a second with a breach of a criminal behaviour order.

What's more, enforcement action by Kent Police has seen Community Protection Warnings issued to five people, with two of these following to the next step of being served a formal Community Protection Notice. One person also received a Fixed Penalty Notice for breaching the Public Spaces Protection Order.

It's great to see people's concerns being taken on board - followed by swift action.
