Inspector Dave Jolly at Mold Police Station
“It is important the Criminal Justice System imposes strong sentences on those people in our communities intent on disrupting the lives of the vast majority of law abiding citizens. Paul David Staniforth is a prolific offender and this sentence and CBO will, I’m sure, bring huge relief to the residents of Sychdyn who have tolerated his anti-social and disruptive behaviour far too long.
“I am particularly pleased as the ‘residents’ came together with the local junior school, whose pupils had also been subjected to Staniforth’s behaviour, to support each other and provide us with evidence to make an application for this CBO. This is an excellent example of community spirit at its best and should also act as a clear warning to those intent on breaking the law or acting in an anti-social manner.”
Inspector Jolly added:
“I hope the sentence will provide the public with some reassurance and make our communities safer. North Wales Police will relentlessly pursue those individuals who cause such harm within our communities and this type of behaviour will not be tolerated”
