Police to target hotspots

POLICE are targetting “hotspots” for youth disorder in Girvan.

INspector Andy Clapperton told a meeting of Girvan and District Community Council last week that Greg Place, Dalrymple Street and Park Road would all be patrolled regularly in the coming weeks.

“This is an issue that we need to focus on,” he said.

“We are now moving into the winter programme and we expect to see a lot more crimes like vandalism,”

The meeting also heard that there had been three drink drivers caught by police in the town centre area in Girvan over the month of August.
