Police banned NINE youths from certain areas of Connah’s Quay over the weekend as part of an ongoing anti social behaviour crackdown in the town.

The temporary banning orders known as Dispersal Notices are the first to be handed out as part of Operation LEAP which gives Police Officers and PCSO’s the power to ban youths from specific areas for 48 hours.

The crackdown follows a number of recent incidents at the Quay shopping centre, Ffordd Llanarth, where its alleged gangs of youths have been harassing and abusing members of the public and staff in shops.

None of the youths involved breached the order, so no arrests were made.

Talking about the weekend action Inspector Hawe said:

“We have had many favourable and supportive comments from members of the public and local council in relation to the action taken.  The operation will be running again in the same context for this weekend.”

Last week Inspector Ceri Hawe said;

“This unacceptable behaviour will not be tolerated.  A policing operation will be run this weekend and robust action will be taken against anyone causing trouble.

“We are linking in with the local schools and letters will go out to pupils to advise them. We are also asking parents and guardians to exercise their responsibilities and to make sure they know where their children are so that they are not part of the problem.”
