Arrests made by police in Sefton during week of action



Police in Sefton have arrested three people during a week of high visibility activity targeting gun crime, drugs, scrambler bikes and anti-social behaviour in the area.

From Monday, the Community Policing Team have been conducting patrols assisted by representatives from Sefton Council, Environmental Health, One Vision Housing and Riverside Housing.

Three men were arrested on Tuesday 12 June for drugs possession, breach of a Criminal Behaviour Order and a breach of a gang injunction with a further two to voluntary attend on suspicion of drugs possession.

Officers were joined by Councillors Trish Hardy and Paul Cummins on patrol in the Bowersdale Park area of Seaforth.

Officers are also available to speak to the community about their concerns at a series of mobile police station across the area, and the force’s Mounted Section will be out on patrol all week.

Areas of land have been searched following information coming in from the community, including North Park and, with the assistance of British Transport Police, the disused railway line at Akenside Street in Bootle, and the railway embankment off King Street.


Superintendent Matt Boyle said: "I want to reassure people that we will not tolerate those people who continue to make life difficult for decent people in our communities, and we are working with partner agencies on activities such as those that are taking place all week to ensure our communities are safe places to live and our parks can be enjoyed by all.

"We will continue to take action whenever the community tells us there are problems. I would appeal to anyone with information about gun crime, anti-social behaviour, and illegal or nuisance scrambler bikes in their areas to get in touch with us and I can assure them that we will take action. We will be concentrating on areas where people have told us they are suffering the effects of this behaviour.

"While we are focussing our efforts to combat crime in Sefton this week, we conduct patrols in the area all year-round and encourage anyone with any information about crime in their community to contact us."
