POLICE claim incidents of antisocial behaviour and criminal damage across Doncaster have dropped compared to the same period last year.
The period of 29 October to 6 November, generally sees an increase in incidents of antisocial behaviour and criminal damage throughout the county.
But the force said this year, the amount of incidents have dropped by a fifth in Doncaster over the same nine day period.
Chief Inspector Neil Thomas said: “This is a fantastic result and I am pleased we have seen this decrease. All public sector organisations in Doncaster have worked together to assist in reducing the number of incidents, and a variety of activities and events were provided for young people to be involved in that were really well attended.
“With the launch of the new non-emergency number for the police, 101, I would always encourage people to report any incident of antisocial behaviour or criminal damage so that we can continue to tackle these issues and make Doncaster a safe place to live, work and play.”
