Partial closure order for address in the Parks

Alert message sent 30/10/2020 17:19:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police


A partial closure order has been approved for an address in Park South, Swindon, in a bid to protect the occupant from criminal groups and reduce the impact of this activity on the local community. 

The order, which will last three months and will prevent anyone from entering the property other than the occupant and three named associates, has been approved at Swindon Magistrates Court for an address in Studland Close. 

Anyone found entering the premises during this time period will be committing an offence and may be arrested. 

Officers submitted an application for the address following ongoing issues, over a significant period of time, by groups of adult males and females involved in criminal activity and anti-social behaviour at this location throughout the day and night.  This activity was also having a detrimental impact on the local residents. 

PC Mike Diffin said: “A closure order of this kind is an effective tool available to the police to help us protect vulnerable individuals from being exploited by criminals in their own home.

“In recent months, officers have been called to the address following various reports from local people in relation to anti-social behaviour from known and unknown persons acting in a manner that has, on occasions, resulted in an escalation of violence and criminality.

“We believe this closure order will have a significant positive impact on the quality of life for the occupant as well as residents in the immediate area. 

“We will continue to conduct regular welfare checks at the address to ensure the order is being adhered to and the welfare of the occupant is not being put at risk.”
