Following recent phone calls by residents regarding late-night car skidding, Suffolk Police have confirmed that 'the four vehicles involved in this behaviour were stopped and dealt with accordingly'.

Also, regarding anti-social behaviour in the Tesco area, police report that 'an operation was undertaken by officers last week whereby 15 vehicles were stopped along Gun Cotton Way, during which one vehicle was also seized. We have also recently been able to undertake follow up action on reports of vehicle ASB where registration numbers have been provided, with drivers and vehicles issued with section 59 warnings. This means that the vehicles will be seized if either the driver or car is involved in any further vehicle related ASB within the next 12 months.

Suffolk Police add that 'we are very much aware of the local issues surrounding vehicle ASB and hope that the above provides some assurance that we are taking action. We would encourage all residents who have concerns regarding vehicle ASB to continue to report such matters to us at the time of occurrence as this allows, not only for resources to be allocated to attend as appropriate in a timely manner, but also enables us to build up a pattern of behaviour and identify vehicles involved.'

CPRA would add that residents should not put themselves at any personal risk to identify either vehicles or perpetrators.

It’s helpful to us to be made aware of all incidents of ASB as it means we can prioritise our resources, consider areas for high visibility patrols and perhaps an increased presence in a particular area, amongst other things.
