Police in Knutsford crack down on Halloween anti-social behaviour

By on October 27, 2017

Knutsford police are conducting additional visits and upping patrols ahead of Halloween and bonfire night to reduce any anti-social behaviour in the town.


Officers have also been in attendance at schools and shops to educate the local community.

Sgt Andy Baker of Knutsford Police said: “We have got plans to attend local schools and warn people about the appropriate behaviour for Halloween and Bonfire Night. We will be publishing Tweets about behaviour and safety, and there will be officers from the beat team patrolling on foot and in cars in the town centre and other areas know for ASB. We want people to enjoy themselves in a safe and responsible manner. We want to educate and make people aware of the proper safety and behaviour advice.”

Sgt Baker said: “We had some incidents last week of eggs being thrown at buildings in the town centre. If we see it, those responsible will be dealt with. PCSO Courtney Nancollas has been going to shops in the town centre and making them aware of the danger of sales of eggs to children. Obviously we can’t stop that altogether, but it’s about a bit of common sense.”
