Police will be using dispersal powers in the area around a Coventry park for the second weekend running.
Edgwick Park in Foleshill and the bordering roads and homes will once again be subject to the dispersal powers which will allow officers to move on people or groups they believe are “likely to cause anti-social behaviour or violence”.
The powers came in to force at 7pm tonight (Friday) and remain in place until 7pm on Sunday, August 23.
A spokesman for Coventry Police said: “We will disperse people or groups likely to cause anti-social behaviour or violence.
“This is being done to protect the residents of Coventry. Please help us help you. Anyone with concerns or info should contact us via live chat or 101. Alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously.”
The same action was taken last week and comes in the wake of a shooting at the park earlier this month.
An 18-year-old man attended hospital with a gunshot wound on August 9 after an incident in the early hours.
Officers investigating the incident arrested a man and a woman, both aged 19, on suspicion of possession of cannabis with intent to supply before they were released pending further investigation.
The force then issued an appeal for dashcam footage and witnesses to get in touch while officers patrolled the area to provide reassurance to residents.
Anyone with concerns or information should contact police via live chat or 101.
