COUNCIL chiefs are set to launch a fresh crackdown on anti-social behaviour in St Helens.

The latest moves to tackle crime and rowdy behaviour will be showcased in the town centre on August 11.

A new booklet produced by the council’s safer communities section will also be available free of charge.

The booklet explains what anti-social behaviour is, how to report it and the standard of service residents can expect when they report incidents to the Community Safety Partnership (CSP).

It can also download a copy of the pledge from the Safer St Helens website www.safersthelens.org.uk

The event (10am – 3pm), in Church Square, will involve a mix of agencies who all work together to keep the borough safe.

They will all be available to talk about their work and will include St Helens Council, Merseyside Police, Registered Social Landlords and Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service, among others.

Over summer, members of the CSP are working together to ensure that anti-social behaviour levels stay down, during a time when historically they are known to increase.

Councillor Sue Murphy, cabinet member for Neighbourhoods, Safer Communities and Youth, said: “The event will provide people with information about the many initiatives to tackle bad behaviour and, importantly, inform people where and how to get help if they have a problem.”
