Anti-social behaviour order extended

POLICE in Calne have extended an anti-social behaviour order which is proving succesful in cracking down on crime.

The order, which covers the Pippin area of Calne, will be extended for a further six months from October 2, when the current order expires.

Wiltshire Police said the extension was to build on the success of the dispersal order, introduced following a series of incidents including vandalism and underage drinking.

Inspector Gavin Williams said: "The success of the dispersal order to support the progress that has been made to date.

"I am confident that we can further impact on any anti-social behaviour and improvethe quality of life for the residents and visitors to Calne..

"As I have said previously, the anti-social behaviour that has been tackled, has been largely due to the actions of a minority of individuals in the area. We will continue to robustly police these individuals."
