Police target yobs in city centre with dispersal order
POLICE in Portsmouth cracked down on anti-social behaviour over the weekend by issuing a dispersal order.
Louts have been making the lives of residents in Somers Town a misery, prompting police to launch the 48-hour long order.
It gave officers the powers to break up groups of yobs.
PCSO Peter Grant said: ‘The dispersal order was implemented in response to issues we have had in the area with groups of youths behaving anti-socially, and gathering around the hub area at night and across Somers Town.’
He added police patrols would continue in the trouble hotspots.
