Main article content
A man from Gloucester has received an Anti-Social Behaviour Injunction following numerous incidents reported by members of the public and partner agency staff.
Jamie Powell, aged 33, was served with the injunction on Friday 12 May following a hearing at Cheltenham and Gloucester County Court.
The case was brought against Powell by Solace, a joint team of officers from Gloucestershire Constabulary, Cheltenham Borough Council and Gloucester City Council.
It followed reports that Powell had been verbally abusive, drunk and disorderly and breaching the city's No Alcohol Public Spaces Protection Order.
The order imposed by the courts forbids him from:
Engaging in conduct that causes or is likely to cause alarm or harassment or distress to any person living in or visiting Gloucester
Using or threatening to use violence towards any person living in or visiting Gloucester
The injunction, which has a power of arrest, will remain in place until 12 May 2024 and breaches can be reported by calling police on 101 or the Solace team on 01452 396396.
Solace Street Aware Lead Officer Adam Stevens said: “Powell has shown a total disregard for the city’s No Alcohol Public Spaces Protection Order. He has continued in his abusive, aggressive, and drunken behaviours despite numerous attempts to engage with him.
"This order was sought in an effort to curtail the behaviours and to provide some protection and respite to those working, living in and visiting our city.
"We work with our partners in the Police, the City Protection Officers and City Safe to make it clear that this type of behaviour, which has a negative impact on our city, will not be tolerated."
