Chester police have taken action in response to reports of anti-social behaviour in the city centre by imposing a dispersal order.

Under Section 34 of the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, this order makes it an offence for individuals to return to a specific area within 48 hours.

The mapped area (below) indicating the coverage of the order will be provided to individuals who are issued with a direction to leave.

The powers of the dispersal order are effective from Tuesday, 27 June, until 7:30 am on Thursday, 29 June.

In a continued effort to combat anti-social behaviour and maintain public safety, officers will be deployed at key hotspots.

Inspector James Wilson of Chester Local Policing Unit emphasised the importance of addressing anti-social behaviour and its impact on the community.

Inspector Wilson stated, “As a result of a small minority of people causing anti-social behaviour and street drinking, we have had to impose a dispersal order in the city. ”

“Anti-social behaviour can have a devastating impact on our communities, and residents have every right to feel safe in their neighbourhoods.”

He urged witnesses or victims of anti-social behaviour to report incidents promptly. Individuals can report such incidents by calling 101 or using the reporting feature on the Cheshire Police website.
