Braehead shopping centre has helped the police and local community wardens support this year’s Anti-Social Behaviour Awareness Week.

The mall hosted police officers and members of Renfrewshire Council’s Community Wardens initiative as they pledged to do all they can to stamp out anti-social behaviour in the community.

The aim of ASB Awareness Week, from July 18 to July 24, is to highlight the problems of and take action against anti-social behaviour, particularly when young people are the victims and engage with the public in ways they can help tackle anti-social behaviour.

The awareness week is being organised by the Resolve organisation whose aim is to encourage police and other agencies along with the local community to work together to find solutions to anti-social behaviour.

The week is supported by key stakeholders including the Home Office, Local Government Association (LGA), National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) and the National Fire Chiefs’ Council (NFCC).

Resolve chief executive, Rebecca Bryant OBE said: “I hope partners will take this opportunity to work with their networks to pull together the examples of best practice they would like to showcase.

“Last year we secured huge amounts of publicity and moved the need to tackle ASB up the public and political agenda. This year we plan to go even further – but we will need your help.”

Peter Beagley, Braehead Centre director added: “People deserve to feel safe where they live and we’re happy to give any support and assistance we can to get the message out there that anti-social behaviour is not to be tolerated and needs to be tackled in the strongest possible way.”
