    Issue was set on Thursday, January 12
    • We did : Tackling anti social behaviour in Workington Town Centre We will deal with this through proactive community policing, high visibility patrols, enforcement action and multi-agency operations as part of our on-going strategy.
    • 8/11/2016 Officers continue to patrol the area around Murray Road and the back lanes tackling anti social behavior. Officers are working with the Town council / Allerdale Borough council, Rotary Club and local businesses seeking a gate order at the rear of Argos where youths congregate.
