Warning to parents following string of anti-social behaviour issues in Peterlee
A message to parents has warned youths causing anti-social behaviour issues in Peterlee ‘may well be arrested’.
It comes as police tackle ongoing anti-social behaviour in Peterlee Town Centre and surrounding areas.
Durham Constabulary has upped patrols in the area and has confirmed that in the last few weeks officers have identified a number of youths who have been causing issues.
The force says parents will be attending the police office along with their children to discuss their behaviour.
Peterlee Police said: “Make no mistake, if criminal offences are committed and offenders identified your child may well be arrested.
“Police, working with partner agencies, will escalate identified ASB incidents - this could potentially have an impact on a tenancy.
“The good people of Peterlee do not have to put up with the actions of the few who are causing these issues and Police will deal with all incidents robustly.”
