Dispersal order for Aylesbury town centre

A dispersal order has been granted for Aylesbury Town Centre. 

Thames Valley Police for Aylesbury Vale have had to issue a dispersal order due to people gathering in the town centre. 

It follows the announcement from Prime Minister Boris Johnson last night restrictions have been placed on peoples movements and gatherings. 

These measures have been put in place to stop the spread of coronavirus and protect workers like those in the healthcare for being exposed to extra risk as they continue to go to work.

A post on their Facebook page explains that the order has been authorised under Section 34 of the Anti Social Crime & Disorder Act, 2014.

 Inspector Davies, on authorising the order for a period of 48 hours said:

“This dispersal order is due to groups gathering in the town centre and acting anti socially. It is to prevent people from the community from being harassed, alarmed or distressed by those involved.”

This dispersal order allows officers to require an individual to leave the area if they are likely to be involved in anti-social behaviour or crime. 

It is an offence for an individual to fail to comply.
