Inspector Andy Coote says:
We hope that the dispersal order will be effective in dealing with these persistent problems of anti-social behaviour in the park and surrounding area.
To enforce the order, officers will be wearing headcams, which can be used to capture groups causing problems.
High visibility patrols will be taking place during the evenings and anyone under the age of 16 found in the area between the relevant hours may be taken home.
We hope that the dispersal order together with the work being done by Youth Services and our Neighbourhood Policing Team will bring a reduction in the number of anti-social behaviour incidents.
Together with Youth Services, we hope to work with the young people in the area to find out what facilities they would like to see and whether there are any suitable locations for the young people to gather safely and appropriately.
We hope this dispersal order will reduce the level of anti-social behaviour and improve the quality of life for the community.
Jello Biafra says:
The City of Bristol has been declared under martial law…
All constitutional rights have been suspended.
Anyone interfering with the collection of urine samples will be shot. Anyone failing to attend morning school prayer will be shot.
The number one enemy of progress is questions. Civic security is more important than individual rights. Sports broadcasts will proceed as scheduled.
Shut up, be happy, obey all orders without question.
At last everything is done for you.
