POLICE have vowed to act swiftly over anti-social behaviour this week.
Over Hallowe’en, Mischief Night and Bonfire Night, officers have urged everyone to play their part to ensure the nights are not used as an excuse for anti-social behaviour.
Parents have been asked to make sure they know where their children are and shopkeepers are urged not to sell items such as flour, eggs and shaving foam to young people. Police have also reminded youths to take responsibility for their behaviour and not cause people undue concern.
Anyone who does not want trick-or-treaters calling at their home can go to www.northyorkshire.police.uk/crimeprevention and click on the special occasions link to download a poster to display in a window.
