Police have issued warnings to two teenagers and a pensioner as part of a crackdown on anti-social behaviour in a Wiltshire town.

Community Protection Warnings (CPWs) were handed to a 74-year-old man and two 16-year-old boys in Corsham during the week ending Sunday, April 30.

Both the pensioner and the teenagers were slapped with warnings for “general anti-social behaviour.”

In a Facebook post, a spokesperson for the force said: “The team have issued a Community Protection Warning to a 74-year-old male in Corsham after concerns raised in relation to his behaviour.

“Two CPW's were issued to two 16-year-old males as a result of a continuation of their behaviour, and in line with the force priorities of keeping the streets of Corsham safe as well as tackling violent behaviour.”

Police told this paper they could not be more specific when asked for details of the offences committed.

CPWs can impose several requirements on an individual, including a requirement to do specific things, stop doing specific things or take reasonable steps to achieve specific results.

A breach of a CPW can lead to a Community Protection Notice being issued, while further breaches can result in an individual being arrested or fined up to £2,500.

CPWs are civil orders and run alongside any criminal investigations.
