A dispersal order will be in place in Saltney this weekend in a bid to combat anti social behaviour involving youngsters in the town.

The move follows a recent rise in anti social behaviour and “mindless damage” to a community facility at Saltney Town Football.

Police have said that large groups of youths should not be congregating due to Covid restrictions.

The dispersal order provides officers with extra powers to deal with those causing the issues.

Police have not said when the order runs until, they generally come into force on Friday evenings and are in place for 48 hours.

Posting an update of the South Flintshire Police Facebook page, a spokesperson said:

“Following a recent rise in Anti social behaviour and mindless damage to a superb community facility at Saltney Town Football Club we will be enforcing a dispersal order over the coming weekend in the Saltney area.”

“Officers will be targeting problem areas within the community and enforcement undertaken where necessary. ’

“We want to make it clear these large groups should still not be congregating. ”

“We are still in a global pandemic and persons need to be reminded of their responsibilities to themselves and others.”

“Lets protect each other.”

The order means police officers and community support officers can direct people they suspect are causing or likely to cause crime, nuisance or anti-social behaviour to leave the designated area for up to 48 hours.

Furthermore, if they return to the specified area after being moved on they can be arrested.
