PFCC visits Chelmsford street benefitting from extra patrols to combat anti-social behaviour

Posted 20th January

Roger Hirst, Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for Essex, yesterday visited Moulsham Street in Chelmsford to view how a share of £1.1m in extra funding is combatting anti-social behaviour.

In July, eleven ASB hotspots were identified in Essex to receive 30,000 hours of high-visibility patrols and targeted intervention thanks to £1.1m of extra funding secured by the PFCC. Moulsham Street, Chelmsford, was one of those areas.

Since July, Moulsham Street area of Chelmsford has seen extra patrols by police and community safety partners and co-ordinated focused nights of action to target persistent anti-social behaviour. This has resulted in 16 arrests, 9 fixed penalty notices (FPNs) and 24 informal warnings.

These figures have contributed to a year on year decrease of 37% in anti-social behaviour in Chelmsford.

Roger Hirst, PFCC for Essex, said: “People who live and work in Essex repeatedly told us they wanted more visible policing in their communities and we have responded – the results speak for themselves.

“Our communities deserve to live in safe neighbourhoods where police are not strangers but visible, responsive and working with local businesses, groups and neighbourhoods to identify and tackle crime and anti-social behaviour.”
