Sixteen dispersal notices issued in Liscard

Officers have seized eight mountain bikes, four electric scooters and issued 16 dispersal notices in Liscard this weekend as a dispersal zone was introduced.

The order, which ran from Friday 28 January at 5pm, lasted for 48 hours until 5pm on Sunday 31 January. 

Under the legislation, officers have the power to seize any item used in the commission of anti-social behaviour. 

Six stop and searches, including one in which a man was found in possession of a suspected class B drug and was given a community resolution, were also conducted by police during the order.

Inspector Alan McKeon said, “We introduced this dispersal zone following reports in Liscard town centre of phone boxes, bins and windows being damaged and members of the public, shop workers and delivery drivers being targeted with abuse.

“The action this weekend has helped us disrupt those youths who were intent on causing a nuisance, and to stop reckless acts of anti-social behaviour and keep our communities safe.

“We received various comments from residents and businesses in support of the order, describing Liscard as a “completely different town” over the weekend.

“Officers are continuing to carry out enquiries into the incidents that took place over the weekend.

“Further enquiries will also be conducted in Liscard by our officers with businesses and the local community to discuss community priorities. 

“If you witness any anti-social behaviour or have any information about such incidents, please contact or speak to our officers so we can continue to take action.”
