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?

  • Nuisance antisocial behaviour is when a person causes trouble, annoyance or suffering to a community.
