We have served a closure order at a property linked to anti-social behaviour and disorder in #Benfleet.
Castle Point’s Community Policing Team served an order at a property in Queensmere on Monday, April 16, after Castle Point Borough Council made a successful application at #Southend Magistrates’ Court.
We requested the order after we received reports about anti-social behaviour and nuisance at the address with a report of drug dealing on Tuesday, April 3.
Sgt Mark McQuade, of Castle Point CPT, said: “We will not tolerate any form of anti-social behaviour or drug dealing in our community and we will use all the powers open to us to tackle it.
“I would like to thank Castle Point Borough Council for their assistance in quickly securing this order through the courts."
