Tackling Anti-Social Behaviour

Bakers Arms ASB patrol with police 130519

Lea Bridge Police, along with Council anti-social behaviour officers have been patrolling the Bakers Arms area following issues raised locally.

The area is covered by the Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO), which includes banning drinking of alcohol on the streets.

PSPOs can be used to tackle issues such as street drinking, drug taking, aggressive begging, use of threatening and insulting language or behaviour and street prostitution.

In PSPO areas police officers, police community support officers, council officers and persons delegated by the council can enforce the restrictions and may issue fixed penalty notices.

Breaching a PSPO restriction is a criminal offence and can result in the issue of a £100 fixed penalty notice, or a fine of up to £1,000 if prosecuted.
