DISPERSAL ZONE NOTICE - *Please note - Revised and expanded map*
A Dispersal Zone will be in place in FORMBY from 4:00PM on TUESDAY 5th NOVEMBER until 4:00PM on WEDNESDAY 6th NOVEMBER, after which, it will be reviewed and, if necessary, extended. The area covered can be seen on the attached map.
Within a Dispersal Zone, police officers or PCSO's have the legal power (under certain circumstances) to:
* Require anyone who's presence in the area is likely to lead to anti-social behaviour to leave the area and prevent them returning for up to 48 hours
* Require a person to surrender items that can be used to cause anti-social behaviour
*Take under 16's home or to a place of safety
*Arrest anyone who ignores the instruction.
Dispersal Zones are just one tool used to help combat anti-social behaviour in the area which has been causing damage to property in the locality and putting the community at risk.
