and live on Freeview channel 276
Officers embarked on a multi-agency initiative in October in partnership with Burnley Council to tackle nuisance behaviour in the Burnley ward.
They carried our speed checks and found three cars speeding and one person without a seatbelt. Appropriate actions were taken.
The police went on patrol with Ticket Enforcement Officers, resulting in seven tickets for parking violations and another for parking in a bus stop.
They also carried out a test purchasing operation that uncovered illicit children’s toys and more than 280 tobacco products, which were seized. This effort also led to the discovery of a quantity of Class B drugs, resulting in the arrest of three individuals.
Queensgate Neighbourhood Officers also issued a Community Protection Notice to an address causing anti-social behaviour.
