ASBO First

by msecadm4921

A police and housing organisation’s unit set up to tackle disorder in Newcastle has secured its first Anti Social Behaviour Order (ASBO).

Northumbria Police and Your Homes Newcastle, working with other partners, set up the city’s first Anti-Social Behaviour Unit during the summer, although it has just been officially opened.

And this week officers got their first ASBO against a man with a string of convictions for disorderly and abusive behaviour.

Roy Oscar Manu, 27, of no fixed address, has 27 convictions over the past three years, many for public order offences. In the last four months he has abused staff at Elswick Cemetery, spat in the face of police officers as he was being arrested and was abusive to staff and the public during another arrest in Gateshead.

Magistrates in Newcastle have now imposed an ASBO on Manu preventing him from causing any harassment, alarm or distress to anyone for the next three years. If Manu breaches the ASBO he could find himself sent to prison.

Whath they say

Sergeant Nick Gilks from the Anti-Social Behaviour Unit said: " This is the first ASBO the unit has secured since being set up and others are sure to follow. It demonstrates how we will target those people who behave in an anti-social way." Nick Dodgeon, Tenancy Services Manager at Your Homes Newcastle said: "The work carried out so far shows how effective partnership work can be and I’m sure it will continue to improve the quality of life for the vast majority of law-abiding residents in Newcastle."
