POLICE at Acle are getting tough with youths whose misbehaviour is making people's lives a misery.

New priorities for the Acle Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) will focus on problems in three different locations:

Acle - Youths drinking and vandalising property behind the medical centre.

Freethorpe - Youths at the village hall shouting, screaming and revving vehicle engines.

Lingwood - Minor vandalism caused by drunken youths.

The priorities, the focus for the next three months, were agreed at the latest Acle Safer Neighbourhood Action Panel meeting.

Those present also learned about the work the SNT did to tackle anti- social behaviour in another part of its patch, at Rackheath.

At Lingwood, the team has conducted high- visibility patrols and made clear to those causing problems how their behaviour has affected villagers.

Work has also been done with youth club workers

to try to encourage youngsters to attend the club rather than congre-gate outside.

And the team has used enforcement measures, including street cautions, for drug possession, as well as stop-and-search powers.

The next Safer Neighbourhood Action Panel meeting is on May 29, at 7.30pm, at Freethorpe Village Hall.
