Letters have been sent to the parents and carers of five youngsters in Renishaw after they were found to be causing a nuisance at a local centre for people with learning disabilities.
At just after 1pm on Tuesday, October 27, police were called to Renishaw day service at the village’s youth club on Main Road, to reports of anti-social behaviour.
The youths were reported to be kicking footballs at the building and at vehicles, speaking to members of the group and causing distress.
Officers confiscated two footballs and took the details of the youngsters who they found at the scene.
They have since sent five letters to the parents and carers of those involved to explain about their behaviour and the effects that it may have on the community and local residents.
Renishaw day service provides services for people with learning disabilities in North East Derbyshire, including Renishaw, Killamarsh, Eckington and Ridgeway.
Members of the Eckington Safer Neighbourhood Team will be stepping up patrols around the youth club at key times in a bid to deter further anti-social behaviour.
Sergeant Aidan Stones, PC Niall Kendellen and PCSO James are urging local residents and community members to get in touch with any information about anti-social or nuisance behaviour in the area so they are able to tackle the issue.
To speak to a member of your local Safer Neighbourhood team call 101.
