Dispersal order in place near Shawford

Alert message sent 01/06/2020 14:16:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary

A dispersal order has been put in place in Compton Lock - also known as Shawford Lock - and Hockley Link following reports of public disorder.

Neighbourhood Chief Inspector Jon Turton authorised the order, which will run from 3pm on Monday 1 June until the same time on Wednesday 3 June.

If appropriate, a further dispersal order could then be put in place.

The order is in response to a number of reports of anti-social behaviour caused by large groups of people.

This is causing distress to the users of the area who just want to have a relaxing time.

Hockley Link is also becoming a safety concern, with people putting themselves at risk of injury by jumping into the water from concerning heights.

The dispersal order gives officers the power to disperse any individual from the area who is involved in anti-social behaviour.

High visibility patrols will continue to reassure the public and to deter large groups from congregating.

Anyone who witnesses anti-social behaviour or large gatherings is encouraged to call 101, or if a crime or incident is in progress, always call 999.
