At last week’s meeting of the Community Council, Grampian Police representatives were on hand to meet with the members present.

The spokesperson for Grampian Police on Tuesday, March 20, informed the Community Council that the police were carrying out regular patrols of certain areas in Fraserbrugh, where annoyances were being reported.

These included lanes in which children loitered, an area in which, it was reported, that children were throwing stones at moving cars, and areas in the town where Environmental Health had received reports that people were causing a danger to others with on-street drinking.

The latter of which included the beach, where discarded bottles are a regular sight for many members of the public.

James Ramsay Park was also being patrolled, as was Broadsea, with the public commenting that broken glass, drinking, and even on-street urination was taking place.

To combat anti-social behaviour, the police said, extra patrols had been used over Friday and Saturday night, commenting that nothing of any note had taken place.

“It had the desired effect,” the spokesperson said, commenting that these increased weekend patrols would probably happen again “sooner, rather than later.”
