PSNI must do more to tackle growing Crossgar anti-social incidents says Cleary.
Sinn Fein’s local government spokesperson for Rowallane Marianne Cleary has condemned a recent rise in anti-social behaviour (ASB) in Crossgar and has called on the PSNI to get to grips with the problem.
Over the Christmas period a number of incidents occurred which has caused considerable alarm in the village. There has been concern amongst some elderly residents who have contacted the local Sinn Féin representative in a state of panic.
Ms Cleary said: “In recent days we have unfortunately seen the community Christmas tree vandalised once again and a spate of fires being lit as youths gather to drink in various well known locations throughout the village.
“I have also received various complaints that broken glass has been left strewn across public spaces including the village playing fields.
“In another incident an elderly resident in Lislea Drive suffered a broken window when youths attacked her front door.
“This is totally unacceptable and I would call on local PSNI officers to step up their presence throughout the village and take a more proactive approach to tackling this anti-social scourge.”
