Increase Police Presence in Bridgwater Town Centre

Increase Police Presence in Bridgwater Town Centre

For many months Bridgwater Town Centre has been blighted with wayward and unruly teenagers who's anti-social behaviour has gone unchecked. The behaviour of this small band of teenagers is unacceptable and should not be tolerated by the police or town officials.

Why is this important?

Bridgwater is a small market town and the town centre is the heart of the community. Many local independent stores have complained about the behaviour of this group of teenagers effectively impacting on their businesses. Locals who live in the town centre have said they do not feel safe.

Bridgwater residents in general have had enough of a small group of teenagers ruining what is usually a peaceful town centre. Many have said they avoid going to the centre now, especially if alone.

A prolonged police presence would deter this group from congregating and inflicting their anti-social behaviour on innocent passers by.

Reasons for signing

  • Does Liddel Granger even know where Bridgwater is? This problem needs to be dealt with once and for all and these kids not just moved on to cause trouble elsewhere
  • Sick of these scrotes thinking they own the place.
  • Ian Liddell Granger should well know why the Police have not increased their presence in Bridgwater Town Centre. Most likely the same reason they gave him when he didn't renew his shotgun licence in time before it run out and It would take at least 6 weeks to issue him with a new one. I.e. The police are too busy with other more important things, they don't have the resources or budget to deal with all crime.
