Safer Travel Target Anti-Social Behaviour at Dudley Bus Station

Published: 17-10-2022

We’ve taken action on antisocial behaviour at Dudley bus station.

As soon as we received the reports of WHAT WAS GOING ON we started to investigate.

We’ve now spoken four teenagers aged between 13 and 16 and their parents.

The 3 boys and 1 girl have been given warnings for breaching the public space protection order which covers the bus station. The order gives us additional powers to stop nuisance behaviour which is damaging people’s quality of life.

We’ll take further action if they don’t change their behaviour and continue to cause problems.

Our investigation into identifying other people involved continues.

Insp Rachel Crump, head of  the Safer Travel police team said;

‘In proactively identifying these 4 youths we have shown that we will not tolerate behaviour that affects passengers using public transport. The behaviour is unacceptable and we are working with partners to identify other youths who have been acting antisocially’
