Officers from the Liverpool local policing team have welcomed a 5-year Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) issued against a man who has been involved in burglary and shop-lifting the city centre.
George Anthony Jackson, 31 years of Hornby Road, Walton was convicted of two offences of theft and burglary.
The order, which started on Tuesday, 19 March prohibits him from:
1) Entering the area outlined in black on the attached map
2) Entering 281 Breck Road, Anfield
3) Remaining in any shop premises if asked to leave by a member of staff of these premises within the County of Merseyside
4) Approaching, contacting or communicating with four named individuals
5) Within the county of Merseyside acting in an anti-social manner – that causes or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress.
Any breach of these conditions will result in further action being taken.
Community Sergeant Jacqui Keeler said: "Criminal Behaviour Orders (CBO) are one of many tools available to us to tackle this type of behaviour, and I hope the issuing of this CBO will reassure the wider community that we will deal robustly with anyone who behaves as Jackson did – having such an effect on businesses and shop workers in the area.
She added: “We have found Criminal Behavioural Orders to be an extremely effective way of tackling persistent offenders who cause misery with anti-social behaviour.
“Any breach of this order up will result in further action being taken against Jackson, and we will act on all information provided should he breach any of these conditions.
“This orders will improve the life of people who have suffered from his behaviour, and with the public’s help we will keep taking positive steps to make our city a safer place to live, work and visit.”
