Peterlee Police’s Neighbourhood Police team completed both high-visibility and plain clothes patrols throughout the evening and early hours of November 12 and November 13 to focus on hot spots and known areas of concern.

Over the course of the action, two females were identified as having behaved in a manner amounting to a breach of their Acceptable Behaviour Contracts.

Police have said that this will be taken forward to Durham County Council’s ASB Interventions team to consider further action.
