Crawley Police increased their presence across Maidenbower Park after receiving reports of Anti Social Behaviour.

The reports included use of Class B drugs being taken within the park.

What constitutes antisocial behaviour?

There are three main categories for antisocial behaviour, depending on how many people are affected:

  • Personal antisocial behaviour is when a person targets a specific individual or group.
  • Nuisance antisocial behaviour is when a person causes trouble, annoyance or suffering to a community.
  • Environmental antisocial behaviour is when a person’s actions affect the wider environment, such as public spaces or buildings.

Sussex Police confirmed they are working with Crawley Borough council to deal with any reports of on going anti social behaviour at Maidenbower Park.

In a statement Crawley Police said:

The public are encouraged to continue to report any new incidents to Sussex Police via 101 or the Sussex Police internet reporting system. If the matter is an emergency then please ring 999
