Crime hotspot now a dispersal zone
A CRIME hotspot has been made into a ‘dispersal zone’ in an effort to reduce anti-social behaviour.
The move enables police to order groups of teenagers to stay away from the area in West Drayton for 24 hours.
The zone in Drayton Garden Village covers Mulberry Parade (including the car park and seating area outside shops), Porters Way (from Mulberry Parade to North Road), Spring Promenade (from Porters Way to Evergreen Drive) and the sports ground off Mulberry Parade. The order became effective on Sunday and will run until April 2015, between 5pm and 1am daily.
It follows a ‘ significant increase’ in the number of teenage youths frequenting the area, according to police.
