In a determined effort to address the growing concerns of anti-social behaviour and criminal activities in Holywell town centre, the North Flintshire Neighbourhood Policing team has ramped up its patrols.

The team’s focus is on disbanding groups of youths involved in evening disturbances and preventing further offences.

This initiative comes amid increased reports of young individuals engaging in disruptive and potentially criminal acts during the evening hours.

The police have emphasised their commitment to identifying and taking firm action against those responsible for such disorder.

Police have said a 20-year-old male was arrested late on Sunday night.

He was apprehended for allegedly making threats towards the youths causing trouble in the town centre.

Following his arrest, police said the individual was “removed” from his accommodation in the Holywell area “to prevent him from being involved In any further disorder.”

The Neighbourhood Policing team has issued a community-wide appeal, urging parents and guardians to be vigilant.

They are encouraged to take appropriate measures if they suspect their children are part of these disruptive groups.

This proactive community engagement is seen as a critical step in curbing the current trend of anti-social behaviour.

To further bolster their efforts, the police have reassured residents that patrols will continue throughout the evening and night, ensuring the safety and well-being of the community.

A police spokesperson said: “We are keen to identify any persons responsible and will continue to take robust action against anyone committing crime or causing disorder. If you are aware of any persons or if your children are part of these groups, we urge you to take appropriate action to prevent them from being involved.”

The public is also encouraged to play an active role by reporting any known instances of criminal activities to the police via 101 or the North Wales Police website.
