There's been a drop in anti-social behaviour on the Isle of Wight and in Hampshire.
Almost 1000 fewer incidents were reported to police during June and July 2012, compared to the same period last year.
During June and July 2011 there were a total of 15,262 incidents of anti-social behaviour were reported; in June and July 2012 a total of 14,325 incidents were recorded.
Figures released today (Thursday) show that:
. Rowdy and inconsiderate behaviour is down 12.91 per cent (935 fewer incidents)
· Street drinking is down 44.03 per cent (188 fewer incidents)
· Noise nuisance is down 14.30 per cent (171 fewer incidents)
· Vehicle related nuisance is up 4.99 percent (72 more incidents).
Campaign leader Inspector Mark Hull said, 'tackling anti-social behaviour is a year-round priority for Hampshire Constabulary.
'However, during the summer we historically see a rise in ASB offences; therefore we are placing additional focus on tackling ASB issues during our Summer Anti-Social Behaviour Campaign.
'Our Safer Neighbourhoods teams across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight have been conducting increased targeted patrols in hot spot areas as well as visits to schools and youth clubs ahead of the summer holidays.
'We have been working closely with licensees to tackle underage drinking; and we have made use of our SpeedWatch schemes run by volunteers. We are also working particularly closely with Neighbourhood Watch schemes to improve the links between local residents and the police.'
Parents in particular are asked to keep an eye on their children during the school holidays to avoid them becoming involved in anti social behaviour.
Officers are reminding Islanders who witness anti-social behaviour to report it by calling 101.
