Survey looks at yob behaviour

Have your say

RESIDENTS are being surveyed in Stainforth by police who are trying to find out if a clampdown on anti-social behaviour in their area has been successful.

Officers targeted the Princess Avenue area for action towards the end of last year, and have carried out several operations there.

A spokesman for the Hatfield and Stainforth Safer Neighbourhood Team said a neighbourhood doorstep consultation had been carried out to establish whether local residents had seen any improvement in the area.

The results will be published once all addresses have been visited.

Several patrols were run there last month. During those, two litter fines were given, a resident with a dirty garden was contacted, and officers spoke to 20 youths.
