POLICE today have a new weapon in the fight against anti-social behaviour in Ipswich.
Incident reporting forms have been placed in all the town's high schools,
sports centres and other public buildings.
And the 30 Co-op stores have also joined the campaign by Ipswich Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnership to crack down on the yobs.

People suffering from anti-social behaviour can fill in a form and send it in a pre-paid envelope to the Anti-Social Behaviour network.

Deputy leader of Ipswich Council David Ellesmere said: "People can be reluctant to report directly to the Police what they feel are minor problems.
"The idea of the incident reporting initiative is to try to resolve these issues by referring the complaints to the appropriate authority best placed to take action."
The scheme received a boost today with the announcement that the
Ipswich & Norwich Co-op was signing up to support the Safer Ipswich initiatives.
And the move brought an immediate message of support from the Home Office.
Louise Casey, Director of the Anti-Social Behaviour Unit, said: "This partnership between the Ipswich and Norwich Co-op and Ipswich Crime & Disorder Reduction Partnership will help people come forward to tackle and not tolerate anti-social behaviour."
