Crackdown on Troublemakers in Ealing
New powers for the police to tackle anti-social activity
A new dispersal zone will come into operation around Ealing Broadway and Haven Green on Saturday (27th October)to help police tackle anti-social behaviour in the area.
It means from West Ealing to Ealing Broadway police will have the power to tell people causing a nuisance to leave.
Superintendent Simon Message said: "The introduction of this dispersal zone sends a strong message that anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated.
“It will also ensure that the area and surrounding streets remains a safe environment for those residents and members of the public, who live, work and visit the local amenities now and in the future.
''Any individuals, irrespective of their age, seen to be acting in an anti-social manner will be dealt with appropriately.
''It is important that people witnessing any anti-social behaviour in the area report it to the police immediately so the appropriate action can be taken against offenders.
''We have listened to the communities in the areas concerned and this further demonstrates that we are here to support the Communities of Ealing.”
