Increased police patrols are to be carried out in Bradwell in a crackdown on anti-social behaviour.
Officers from the Hathersage Safer Neighbourhood Team have pledged to tackle the issue following reports of anti-social behaviour and criminal damage around the youth shelter on Beggars Plot.
Residents have complained about the amount of litter left there and graffiti daubed on the shelter.
PCSO Anthony Boswell said: “We will be carrying out increased patrols in the area to monitor the situation and inquiries into the matter are currently ongoing.
“The youth shelter is there for people to enjoy however this is being damaged by graffiti and litter being discarded around the shelter.
“We will be speaking to groups of youths in the community about how anti-social behaviour and how it can affect residents living in the surrounding area.
“We would like to encourage anyone with any information to contact us so that we can tackle this issue without it leading to charges for criminal damage.”
To report anti-social behaviour call police on 101.
