The Colchester Community Policing Team have carried out an operation targeting anti-social driving.
Earlier this week (2 and 3 February) Officers, PCSOs and Special Constables focussed their activity on vehicles at Leisure World, St Marys car park, Mason Road, and Tollgate.
A Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) is in place there aimed at reducing the nuisance and sometimes dangerous driving behaviour.
They spoke to drivers explaining the Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) which is in place and how any breaches would be enforced.
Visible patrols were also carried out in local car parks following a number of vehicle thefts.
Chief Inspector Colin Cox, District Commander for Colchester, said:
“Anti-social behaviour of any kind can have a significant and ongoing impact on the lives of our communities.
“Ongoing issues can impact on the wellbeing of residents and it’s something we work hard with our partners to tackle.
“The aim of the PSPO is to reduce anti-social driving and have a positive impact on the community.
“Ensuring this is enforced is really important.
“The people of Colchester have my commitment that this work will continue.”
