Suffolk Police are working in partnership with East Suffolk Council, Oulton Broad Parish Council and the Nicholas Everitt Park Trust in Oulton Broad to prevent anti-social behaviour in the park this Summer.
Given the year of lockdowns and restrictions, people will doubtless be keen to go outside and enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the park. However, following a range of incidents last year, the teams are working together to address potential hotspot areas and plan ahead for the warmer weather.
PC Claire Bodmer from Suffolk Police said “We are keen to look at ways we can help to maintain the safety of those enjoying the park and prevent any anti-social behaviour. Police will take any necessary steps to deter ASB and enforce the law where needed”.
The park is managed by the Nicholas Everitt Park Trust, supported by Oulton Broad Parish Council. A member of the Park Trust said “We have a unique and wonderful park here in Oulton Broad, it’s beautiful grounds and facilities make for a great place to relax and spend time with friends and family. We are pleased to be working together with the Police and councils to ensure it remains an area everyone can enjoy”.
East Suffolk Council will assist with the implementation of certain measures and Rachel Tucker from ESC said “Nicholas Everitt Park is a fantastic place to be and should not be spoiled by an inconsiderate minority. We want to make sure it remains safe and enjoyed by all throughout the Summer”.
