Police share statistics from crackdown on antisocial behaviour in Wisbech





Police have said they have identified 65 people responsible for antisocial behaviour in Wisbech in a bid to crack down on street drinking and begging.

It is part of Operation Luscombe, which has meant that officers have carried out 136 street patrols in the past year in Wisbech town centre.

Officers have said that due to the patrols, 53 people have ceased offending after an informal warning, seven have ceased offending after being issued with a community protection warning and one has stopped offending after being issued with a community protection notice.

However, police have revealed four people have been prosecuted at court for relevant offending.

Fenland Policing posted on their Facebook page: “19 persons on the Op Luscombe cohort have attended our multi-agency hub where bespoke support is arranged for them to address their behaviour.

“We know that this is an important issue for those that use the town centre and we are committed to tackling it. We'll be continuing our dedicated patrols as we head into the warmer weather.”

Members of the public are invited to have their say on their community policing survey by filling out a form.
