BCP Council has recruited six additional CSAS officers to tackle anti-social behaviour
BCP Council is increasing its efforts to stamp out anti-social behaviour in the area.
It has increased the number of CSAS officers patrolling the streets of Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole.
Over the last few months, the authority has recruited an additional six CSAS officers to work alongside the existing team of eight officers within the neighbourhood policing teams to address anti-social behaviour and low-level crime on the streets.
This includes four new officers for Bournemouth town centre as well as the permanent appointment of the CSAS officer employed to work along Ashley Road in Poole to help combat the rise in anti-social behaviour in these areas.
Cllr May Haines, portfolio holder for Community Safety said: “I’m delighted that we’ve been able to invest in additional CSAS officers to work across our conurbation. They are vital to the work we do in addressing anti-social behaviour on our streets and in certain areas their presence is needed more to help resolve issues and make all our residents feel safe where they live, work and play. In addition, we will continue to fund the CSAS office for Ashley Road in Poole, which was previously funded through CIL.
“We want to empower our communities so everyone feels safe, engaged and included and through our Cleaner, Greener, Safer campaign we’re able to do just that and install a sense of pride in our place.”
