Police step up patrols of parks and housing estates in bad behaviour crackdown
Officers were at crime and anti-social behaviour hotspots cracking down on shoplifters and illegal off-road motorcyclists in a borough.
Local policing teams were on patrol at sites including Walsall Bus Station in St Paul's Street; two Walsall Housing Group run estates in Bloxwich and Blakenall, and the Nest Common and Wood Lane areas of Pelsall.
Other projects included a pop-up surgery at Asda, in Bloxwich High Street and befriending youths playing basketball in Willenhall Memorial Park off Pinson Road in Willenhall.
The move was part of Anti-social Behaviour Awareness Week held from July 3-9 and Operation Juniper to highlight the actions that can be taken by residents.
Police and partner bodies have been carrying out high-visible patrols where communities reported issues including street drinking.
They have also visited derelict sites including the former Rising Sun in Chester Road North, in Brownhills.
