"What are we doing about it"
Officers are working in partnership with local retailers, including licensed premises to ensure that underage youngsters are identified and prevented from getting access to alcohol.
Landlords for premises which have been identified as being problematic are being invited to the police station and a joint strategy is being impremented to prevent further incidents.
Officers are rigorously enforcing Section 30 legislation around underage drinking and the Designated Public Places Order.
"Keeping you informed"
Updates will be put on sector web pages outlining successes and the positive action taken against individuals.
Residents will be kept informed at local meetings and through leaflet drops about the activity of patrolling officers.
