Police have warned of an increase in anti-social behaviour near to a town centre’s cinema. Officers took to Facebook to inform the public of a spate of anti-social behaviour taking place around the ARC cinema on Station Road, Beeston.

The issue is said to have impacted local businesses. A police statement posted on social media said officers were working to “stop the few individuals involved in ruining this for the many”.

“We have seen an increase in ASB issues around the ARC cinema which is impacting local businesses. PCSO Jones and PC Yaqub are looking at ways to improve this and working closely to stop the few individuals involved in ruining this for the many,” the Facebook post said.

“PC Yaqub is keen on ensuring that local businesses have the best possible opportunity to thrive and members of the public are safe. We are working closely with local businesses in Beeston to develop positive partnerships and with our partnering agencies to help Beeston succeed.

“We have been doing foot patrols in the area and trying to be visible as much as possible to combat and deter ASB issues.

Nottinghamshire Police and Broxtowe Borough Council representatives met recently to discuss recent concerns about groups of young people gathering and engaging in antisocial behaviour in Beeston. Broxtowe Borough Council’s portfolio holder for community safety Councillor Richard MacRae said large numbers of youngsters are believed to be travelling from outside of the town and getting off at the Station Road tram stop, where local people and businesses have reported intimidating behaviour, loud noise and disruption.

Police said officers already conduct plain-clothed patrols on trams, carry out high-visibility foot patrols in the Station Road area at peak times, and work closely with partners at tram network NET, who provide footage of any incidents caught on their extensive CCTV coverage across the network.

Police and Crime Commissioner Caroline Henry said her office had invested in a range of youth activities to combat crime and antisocial behaviour. “If it starts with antisocial behaviour at age nine and they get away with that it will start to step up and lead more toward criminality as they get older,” she said.

“It is important that the police, council partners, local businesses and residents all work together as a team to tackle issues as they arise and prevent them spiralling.

“One of the core outcomes within my Make Notts Safe Plan is to establish a strategic antisocial behaviour taskforce where partners can work together and use their collective resources, including sharing intelligence and making use of individual powers, to tackle this issue and increase public trust and confidence in the response.”
