Police will turn the spotlight on Ribbleton as part of a clampdown on anti-social behaviour.


Officers are set to be on the streets in the Brookfield and Greenland areas and organising numerous events from Monday 11 March

Dubbed Operation Cleanslate by police it will include dog chipping sessions, litter picks, open skips for removing waste and tackling fly tipping.

Police have vowed to visit every home in the two areas to speak to residents about local issues by Saturday 16 March.

PC Julie Stewart said: “Anti social behaviour and crime continues to bring misery to the lives of so many people in so many communities. Working together with our partner agencies, Lancashire Police continue to do all we can to tackle the potential causes of anti-social behaviour and crime. We are spending a week in these areas which will hopefully make a real difference in working towards a better community and improving the lives of residents.

“Spending time in these areas will allow us to try and identify particular issues and reduce crime rates as well as reassuring residents that Officers are working hard to tackle any problems.”
