Offenders clean up in Long Eaton

Derbyshire Probation staff arranged for offenders on unpaid work to help clean the St John Ambulance land on St John’s Street in Long Eaton.

Pcso Pat Barker of the Long Eaton Town Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “We have recently seen an increase in calls to the police about anti-social behaviour in the area of St John’s Street, as well as more graffiti in the alleyways and damage to telephone wires.

“Now that the clean-up is complete we will be increasing our patrols of the area to tackle the issues of anti-social behaviour and damage.”
