The order will be in place between 4pm on Thursday 3 November and 4pm on Saturday 5 November, following reports of anti-social behaviour (ASB) in Ringland.
A dispersal order covering parts of Newport will come into effect at 4pm today (Thursday 3 November) following several reports of anti-social behaviour.
The order will remain in place until 4pm, Saturday 5 November covering parts of Ringland.
The areas covered by the order includes the Ringland Centre, Milton Court and the surrounding roads as shown on the below map.
Inspector Shaun Conway said:
"Following reports of anti-social behaviour from the residents and businesses in the area, we have issued this dispersal order. Our officers are committed to protecting our communities and will take action against anyone intent on causing harm or disorder.
“If you have any concerns about anti-social behaviour, and see us on our patrols, please do stop to talk to us.
"Alternatively, you can report your concerns by calling 101, or by sending us a direct message via Facebook or Twitter.”
Dispersal orders give officers extra powers to direct groups to leave an area if they are involved in ASB or disorder, if members of the public are being harassed, alarmed or distressed or if officers think their behaviour may lead to ASB.
If they return to that area after being moved on, they face being arrested.
