Police Target Anti-Social Behaviour In Wigan

Wigan Police have targeted ’problems in the community’ to deal with anti-social behaviour.

Anti-social behaviours are actions that harm or lack consideration for the well-being of others.

A Greater Manchester Police WIgan West spokesman said:

“This week, the wider Neighbourhood team (Wigan town centre, Scholes and Ince) have been further assisting with solving problems in the community.

“A problematic resident who had been causing ASB and previously been served with a Notice to Quit, failed to leave the property on time (they were also co-incidentally arrested for another matter the previous night) – which is more evidence of the issues they had been causing.

“Hopefully this action will give the others the message that one way or another we will do our best to stop their behaviour, and reduce problems for everyone.”
