Officers from Epsom and Ewell Safer Neighbourhood Team have secured a full Closure Order against a property in Ewell.
The Closure Order was granted following drug related crime and anti-social behaviour associated with the address.
Officers from the Safer Neighbourhood Team worked closely with the housing department at Epsom and Ewell Borough Council to gather evidence over a number of months from victims who were able to provide anonymous impact statements that conveyed the fear, anxiety and disruption to their daily lives, rights and freedoms.
The full Closure Order was granted on Friday 5 November under Section 80 of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 by Staines Magistrates’ Court.
The order means that no-one can enter 106 Curtis Road, Ewell until 4th February 2022.
Borough Commander, Inspector Jonathan Vale from Epsom and Ewell Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “Friday’s result sends a strong message to our neighbourhoods that we are committed to tackling behaviour that is harmful and damaging to communities and serves as a warning to any perpetrators of drug related crimes and anti-social behaviour that we will use all available legislation to pursue them, and ensure that they are held to account.
“Anti-social behaviour and drug related crime have a massive impact on communities and will not be tolerated. The local policing team, along with our partner agencies, will continue to work together to ensure that action is taken where necessary.”
