New dispersal power

The new dispersal power will enable Police Officers and/or Police Community Support Officers (“PCSOs”) to direct a person who has committed, or is likely to commit, anti-social behaviour to leave a specified area and not return for a specified period of up to 48 hours.  The officer must specify the area from which the person is excluded from, and may specify when and by which route they must leave the area.  Where the officer believes an individual is under the age of 16, an officer can remove that individual to a place where he or she lives or to a place of safety.
