A new team dedicated to tackling criminal and anti-social behaviour challenges that emerge in a particular area have had a productive time in Beccles.

The Neighbourhood Crime Proactive team or ‘Kestrel team’ also supports local policing priorities to help tackle issues and concerns which local communities have raised to local officers.

Recent Kestrel team patrols of Beccles have included the train station, the local skate park, the car park at Tesco and town centre. 

The team were in Beccles in response to concerns raised by the public after reports of intimidating anti-social behaviour, some of which is linked to the anti-social use of motor vehicles.

Meanwhile, recent patrols also saw a teenager arrested following a Misuse of Drugs Act search, which was conducted in the Northgate area of the town. 
During the search, a small amount of suspected cannabis was located and he was later released under investigation pending further enquiries.
