ANTI-social behaviour awareness week was a busy one for Police Officers in Mid Devon.

During the week of July 18, Mid Devon officers worked with other agencies to address varying levels of anti-social behaviour across Cullompton, Tiverton and Crediton.

Taking to social media, about the week, the officers said that the Mid Devon team have worked hard to detect offenders and deter future anti-social behaviour in a number of ways.

The posting read: “In Crediton, officers have been progressing matters regarding specific youths engaging in anti-social behaviour.

“Officers made visits to many occupants suffering from anti-social behaviour and have spoken to residents believed to be involved in such behaviour.

“These enquiries have been followed up with joint work with Mid Devon housing officers to initiate anti-social behaviour contracts which helps us to monitor progress.

“Officers in Crediton seized an electric scooter from the highway, a matter that concerns several residents and is often reported to us.

“Crimes of outraging public decency are being investigated and are ongoing after numerous calls of males being naked.

“A stop search took place in Newcombes Meadow where cannabis was found and seized.”

The posting continued: “The week culminated in a warrant being executed in Tiverton which involved all members of the Mid Devon team.

“This required joint working with MDDC (Mid Devon District Council) and Trading Standards. A closure order was secured for the property in order to address the ASB at the location.

“All of this work has taken place on top of the support provided to our response officer colleagues in dealing with reports of domestic abuse; high risk missing persons; road traffic collisions and lengthy traffic control; assistance at broken down vehicles; investigation into Fraud; a serious incident in another policing area that required support from Mid Devon; reassurance visits and crime prevention after a burglary; assisting MH staff with supporting an individual in need of immediate intervention and support…amongst many other incidents.”
