North Wales Police: 24-Hour dispersal order in Mold to combat anti-social behaviour
Police have issued a 24-hour dispersal order in Mold after reports of a large group of youths behaving in an anti-social manner.
The group was said to have been throwing items towards properties in the Cedar Grove area, prompting authorities to take action to prevent further incidents.
The order, which came into effect at 4.20pm on Wednesday, March 22nd and will remain in place until 4.20pm on March 23rd, gives officers and PCSOs the power to direct anyone engaging in anti-social behaviour to leave the area and not return under Section 34 of the ASB Crime and Policing Act 2014.
Inspector Iwan Jones said that the dispersal order was put in place as a preventative measure to deter any further incidents in the Mold area.
He also urged parents and carers to know where their youngsters are in the evenings.
“As a result of an increase in anti-social behaviour by a number of youths in the Mold area, we have today put a dispersal order in place as a preventative measure to deter any further incidents this evening,” said Inspector Jones.
“There will be an increased presence in the specific areas outlined in the map above this evening, and we will not hesitate to enforce the extra powers afforded to them if needed.”
The police have not disclosed any further details about the nature of the anti-social behaviour or the individuals involved.
However, the dispersal order is a clear indication that they are taking the matter seriously and will not tolerate such behaviour in the community.
