Anti-social behaviour rates down in Levenmouth

A Fife committee has been hearing how successful a scheme introduced to curb crime has been since its introduction four months ago.

Since the Anti-Social Behaviour Approach was rolled out in April there's been a 30% decrease in motorbike and quad bike related crime according to reports from Police Scotland, the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and Fife Council's Safer Communities team.

A further twenty-vehicles have been seized and 84 people have been charged with anti-social behaviour related crimes and road traffic offences. 

Convener of Levenmouth Area Committee, Councillor Ken Caldwell said: “It’s good to hear this new approach is paying off as the illegal use of motorcycles and quad bikes in Levenmouth has been an ongoing issue for many years.

“I thank the officers for all their hard work and praise the partnership approach to community safety in Levenmouth.”
