Police have stepped up their patrols in one area of York to try to tackle anti-social behaviour.
It comes after the neighbourhood policing team met with residents from Chapelfields to learn about their concerns.
Officers hosted a community engagement event at Sanderson House in July.
- Police to meet concerned residents after a rise in anti-social behaviour incidents in part of York
- ‘They are banging, swearing, kicking fences down’ – York residents on the trouble blighting their lives
- Police ask residents in part of York to fill out a survey about the issues with ASB and crime
More than 100 residents attended and took part in a survey about the crime the area was facing.
Police said the main issue highlighted was anti-social behaviour.
One resident told YorkMix that youths were regularly “banging, swearing, kicking fences down and drinking excessively”.
In response, police have put a new plan in place.
The York Outer Neighbourhood Policing Team have increased their patrols in the area and are working with the schools and Youth Justice Service on a joined-up approach.
Inspector Lee Pointon from the team said: “We will continue to work with the community and our partners to deal with any problems in the Chapelfields area of York.
“I would urge residents to continue to work with us and any incidents to us, so that we can deal with them in a timely and more efficient manner.”
