Cramlington Neighbourhood Policing Team have conducted regular patrols around the area.  Youths who were found to be hanging about in the area concerned have been spoken to, advised about their behaviour and what will be done if they are caught committing anti-social behaviour.  During those patrols youths who are caught committing anti-social behaviour have had their name and address taken and a letter has been sent to parents to inform them that their son/daughter has been spoken to by the police after they had been involved in anto-social behaviour.
