Criminal behaviour order means Ipswich woman Suzanne Brown cannot sit on the ground in public places
A woman from Ipswich has been issued with a criminal behaviour order (CBO) for persistently committing anti-social behaviour in Ipswich town centre.
Suzanne Brown of Alderlee, Ipswich has been issued with the order for continually begging near cash machines and for arguing and fighting.
Police and Ipswich Borough Council officers, who form the Ipswich anti-social behaviour team, have worked to address the behaviour and attended South East Suffolk Magistrates’ Court on November 12 to impose the CBO under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.
The CBO was granted for a period of two years making it a criminal offence for Suzanne Brown to sit on the ground or walkways where the public has access.
Pc Danny Thompson of Ipswich’s ASB team said: “The CBO is the final piece of work which started at the beginning of the year to stop Brown committing anti-social behaviour in Ipswich town centre.
