Blackpool Police Update
As of 18:45 this evening a dispersal order has been authorised in an area close to the town centre and will last for 48 hours. This is to tackle yet more Crime and Anti-Social Behaviour the community is suffering. A 15 year old boy has just been arrested on suspicion of an assault in this area and other youths continue to cause significant problems.
This order allows us to disperse groups, take children home and direct people to leave the area. Those found breaching the order or failing to comply can be arrested.
We continue to work closely with other agencies to tackle these issues where early intervention is required but if an arrest is necessary, it will happen.
