Over 70 people recently attended a themed public meeting to address anti-social behaviour (ASB) issues within the Craigavon Borough.

The public meeting, held by Craigavon Policing and Community Safety Partnership (PCSP), was organised in response to the levels of anti-social behaviour within the borough.

Statutory agencies were also on hand to answer questions about ASB and how they can deal with it.

“Anti-social behaviour can include vandalism, littering, alcohol and drugs abuse, rowdy behaviour, and much more - behaviour that no-one should have to deal with on a daily basis,” commented Kenneth Twyble, Chair of Craigavon PCSP.

“This meeting has allowed the public and community representatives to sit down with statutory agencies and share extremely useful information on anti-social behaviour and how to deal with it.”

The event took on a ‘speed networking format’, giving attendees the opportunity to speak to statutory agencies, including representatives from Northern Ireland Housing Executive, SELB, PSNI and the Probation Board of NI.
