Community Patrols

This week Community Officers continued to carry out patrols along the footpath adjacent to the South Esk River near Newtongrange and surrounding area, engaging with members of the public in response to concerns raised regarding young people jumping into the river from the dam, and reports of youth related anti-social behaviour.

During one of the visits Police met with a factor and assisted in clearing an area where there was evidence of alcohol use and fires having been set.

Community officers will continue to carry out patrols in this area.
