Tackling anti-social behaviour and the abuse of parking restrictions have been top of the hit list for police officers in and around Cromer.

The Cromer Safer Neighbourhood Priority setting meeting took place on Thursday where the priorities from the previous meeting were reviewed and the priorities for the next month were set.

The Safer Neighbourhood Team, made up of police officers and PCSOs, reported on how they had tackled anti-social behaviour on Cadogan Road and Cabbell Road in Cromer.

Incidents included home made fireworks being thrown into the street on Cabbell Road, which resulted in three people being arrested, and a youth being found with serious head injuries in the street, for which three people have been arrested and bailed for further enquiries.

Officers said they had worked to increase community confidence by way of a leaflet drop, telling people the actions they had been taking.

They said they were also working with St Matthews Housing in Cabbell Road Cromer, over reports of crime-related incidents there.

Updates were also given on work to stop anti-social behaviour on Northrepps playing field including identifying where improvements could be made to the lighting, litter management and general maintenance of the field.

Officers also revealed they had issued 17 fixed penalty notices in a bid to stop the abuse of parking restrictions in and around Cromer.

Priorities set for the next meeting are to keep track on anti-social behaviour in Cadogan Road and Cabbell Road in Cromer, to continue to address anti-social behaviour in Northrepps and to address the issue of purse thefts in Cromer town centre.
