Youth Nuisance Reports

Alert message sent 12/06/2020 09:40:00

Information sent on behalf of Durham Constabulary


Good morning Citizen

Over the past two weeks we have had an increasing number of reports of young people meeting at the Riverside Park in Chester le Street causing anti-social behaviour and breaching the COVID 19 guidance. Efforts have been made by the Neighbourhood team to engage with teenagers in the area in efforts to educate them in line with government guidance, this includes meeting with parents and issuing Fixed Penalty Notices for breaches. This behaviour has escalated over this week with more persons contacting police concerned with the behaviour of the young people including reports of nuisance, underage drinking and criminal damage.
 
On Saturday 7th June 2020 Police and Police community support officers attended the park a number of times during the afternoon but at around 9PM a large group of females were stopped by police. Their attitude towards officers was disgusting with shouting, swearing and using threatening behaviour along with a number of the females clearly under the influence of alcohol.
This resulted in two females under 18 being arrested by Chester le Street Neighbourhood team and taken to Peterlee custody where they were kept in for the night.
One female has been reported for racially aggravated public order, public order and assaulting an emergency worker and for breaching COVID regulations.
 
The other female has been reported for x2 assault on an emergency worker, public order and breach of COVID regulations.
The other persons present have ALL been captured on officer’s body worn video and been identified and should expect a visit for fixed penalty notices over the coming days.
 
Parents NEED to be aware that if your children are found to be breaching COVID 19 regulations, meeting in groups of more than six in outside areas and not keeping to the 2 metre rule you will be reported as you have parental responsibility and MUST ensure they do not breach the regulations.

In response to the incidents over the past two weeks we will be having an increased police presence around the RIVERSIDE and other areas and will look to report any persons breaching the regulations.

PLEASE THINK ABOUT THIS IN CONTEXT, THE ABOVE BEHAVIOUR IS NOT ACCEPTABLE AT ANY TIME BUT DURING A GOLBAL PANDEMIC WE ALL NEED TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY TO PREVENT SUCH BEHAVIOUR.
 
Let’s not use the Riverside Park, River banks, or sporting pitches as a meeting place for young people to drink alcohol and cause Anti-Social Behaviour or crime and break government rules, it’s your family’s lives you are risking!

Stay safe, stay alert,
