For the second week in a row Romford town centre had a dispersal order issued from Friday evening through to Saturday evening.
The Section 34&35 Anti social behaviour orders were issued to help ease the increase in anti social behaviour after the lifting of lock down restrictions.
Neighbourhoods Chief Inspector Chris Nixon told the Havering Daily: “Now that the night time economy has reopened we have seen an increase in anti social behaviour and robberies. This dispersal order will cover both.
“Last weekend we had three arrests for drunk and disorderly and criminal damage.”
East Area police have placed additional resources to the town centre to help deal with these issues.
The dispersal order will give police the additional legal framework to move people on and prevent anti social behaviour in Romford.
Well done to East Area police and Chief Inspector Nixon for his pro active police work that is reducing crime across Havering.
