BROOMFIELD Hospital staff will now be able to assist Essex police in tackling anti-social behaviour after a new scheme was rolled out.

Police announced the expansion of the Community Safety Accreditation Scheme (CSAS) at the hospital for the first time.

CSAS accredited staff have the power to require a person to give their name and address if they’re involved in anti-social behaviour.

In addition, they are able to assist police in dealing with incidents of disorder, nuisance, littering, underage drinking and graffiti.

Community safety accreditation scheme officer, Jenny Ayres, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Broomfield Hospital into the extended police family for the first time.

“The powers that they’ve been granted will provide benefits to the local community, and will help to ensure a joint approach between Essex Police and our partners in dealing with anti-social behaviour.”
