Police install CCTV and increase patrols after rise in anti-social behaviour and drug use in Shifnal
Police officers have seen an increase in reports of anti-social behaviour, drug use and littering in Shifnal over the last few months.
It comes as Shifnal SNT Team has today announced it has increased patrols in the Brookdale area and has been working alongside Shifnal Town Council to install a mobile CCTV camera.
PC Mandy Cooper of SNT Shifnal and Albrighton said: "If you are experiencing problems with anti-social behaviour, or have any concerns about it, or other community safety issues, you should contact your local council or report this to us online.
"In an emergency, if you or your property are at risk or a crime is in progress call 999.
"The police, local authorities and other community safety partner agencies, such as Fire & Rescue and social housing landlords, all have a responsibility to deal with anti-social behaviour and to help people who are suffering from it.
