Crime / Fri 12th Apr 2019 pm30 01:11pm
A DISPERSAL order will be in place in Edinburgh Way and surrounding roads in Harlow this weekend, after we’ve received reports of a planned car cruise event.
The order will run from 6pm on Saturday, April 13, to 2am on Sunday, April 14.
The dispersal order gives officers the power order people causing anti-social behaviour to leave the area and breaching any direction given under the order is a criminal offence.
Inspector Tony Walker, of Harlow’s Community Policing Team, said: “Whilst we want to support those who have an enthusiasm for cars and other vehicles, we know that these events can often give way to anti-social behaviour, dangerous driving and other situations that can put attendees and members of the public at risk.
“By using this order we can make sure that the businesses and residents who would otherwise be impacted can continue to go about their evening safely and undisturbed.”
Please see above for the areas covered by the dispersal order.
