Closure order issued for address in Portsmouth

Alert message sent 28/06/2019 16:27:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary


Officers and staff from the Hampshire Constabulary’s Portsmouth High Harm Reduction Team, Anti-Social Behaviour Team and Charles Dickens Neighbourhood Policing Team have successfully gained a full Closure Order for an address in Bridgeside Close.
 
The teams, who worked in conjunction with Portsmouth City Council, were first notified of incidents occurring from the address in March 2019. Since then there has been an increase in drug use, violence, vehicle nuisance, underage drinking, noise complaints, criminal damage, harassment, intimidation and littering linked directly to the address.
 
The full closure order means that nobody will be allowed to enter the address. If they do then they will be committing a criminal offence and can be arrested. Police have now had the property boarded and secured.
 
PC Gem Cooper from the Portsmouth High Harm Reduction Team said:
 
“We are very pleased with this positive outcome. Our mission is to safeguard the people of Portsmouth from harm, and on this occasion we have taken robust action to ensure the safety of our communities. Local residents have had their lives disrupted over the last four months due to criminal activity at this house.
 
“Our message to those who think it is acceptable to act in such a way, is that Hampshire Constabulary and Portsmouth City Council will not tolerate this behaviour. We do not take these decisions lightly, but if you are caught breaking the law and your tenancy then we will take action. We hope that the residents can now enjoy some peace and normality back in their lives.”
 
Senior Investigations Officer Dave Clark, of Portsmouth City Council Anti-Social Behaviour Unit, said:
 
“This address is leased from the City Council and rented privately to the current tenant. The ensuing levels of crime, nuisance and disorder in and around the address made life entirely unbearable for local residents and their families.
 
“Working with our partners at Hampshire Constabulary, Housing & Social care, obtaining this order will stop the harm occurring within the community and allow the Landlord of the address to obtain an order for possession during the period of closure. Portsmouth City Council will not tolerate nuisance and criminality that negatively impacts on our communities.”
 
If you are experiencing severe Anti-Social Behaviour in your community then please call Police on 101. For any complaints surrounding Neighbours ensure you make contact with your local Housing Officer. For noise complaints please contact your local Council. Portsmouth City Council can be reached on 02392 82225.
