NATIONAL resources have been drafted in to help tackle anti-social behaviour in Prestonpans and Cockenzie and Port Seton.

Concerns about youth-related disorder have been highlighted by police in recent weeks, with letters being sent to the homes of a number of youngsters.

On Tuesday, November 10, a spokesman for Police Scotland said: “Officers from the National Force Reserve Unit (FRU) are again deployed this evening, as they have been most days, to tackle the ongoing youth-related disorder in the area.

“The officers work alongside local community and response teams and will be taking a zero-tolerance approach to anti-social behaviour.

“The FRU are a specialist resource available to local policing commanders to tackle local issues.

“They will continue to deploy to prevent crime, reduce disorder and keep people safe.”

Anyone with information relating to any disorder should contact police on 101 or 999 in an emergency.
