A police crackdown on anti-social behaviour in Llanfairpwll has started to pay off.
Four people were given disposal orders last weekend and told stay away from certain areas for 48 hours. Stop searches have also been carried out under the Misuse of Drugs Act.
Officers have also been dealing with vandalism, underage drinking and drug abuse in recent weeks – with damage reported at the Maes Eilian ground of local football club, CPD Llanfairpwll.
It’s believed teenagers have been staying out as late as 3am with some travelling to the village from other parts of Anglesey and Gwynedd.
But since a meeting with the community council over a fortnight ago, police have received only one call of anti-social behaviour.
Acting Inspector Ian Roberts said residents and local schools have helped police to tackle the problem: ”Working with our Special Constabulary colleagues, the neighbourhood team have dedicated their time to patrolling Llanfairpwll and surrounding areas.”
”Enforcement is always the last option and we have tried to engage with the young people to educate them on the concerns raised by the community.”
”As part of the patrols, officers have taken children, who have been acting in an anti-social manner, home and provided advice to parents.”
Dedicated teams are continuing to patrol Llanfairpwll and the surrounding area throughout the weekend.
