criminals targeted

MEXBOROUGH Police have vowed to crackdown on three hot spot areas for crime in the town.

Officers in the Safer Neighbourhood Team will target criminals and those causing anti-social behaviour in Schofield Street, Derwent Road and Coniston Road.

The three streets were identified as areas of high criminal activity by residents at the last Partners And Communities Together meeting.

Officers will report back at the next meeting at Mexborough Resource Centre on July 12 at 6.30pm.
