Police Scotland are continuing increased patrols around Sighthill Park and other key areas in the South West of Edinburgh to deter and deal with violence, antisocial behaviour and disorder.
There will be a zero tolerance approach and enforcement action will be taken if anyone is identified as being involved in any criminal behaviour. One of our priorities in Edinburgh is dealing with disorder and antisocial behaviour and we are committed to making these public areas safe places for visitors, local businesses and residents.
The patrols have stemmed form an increase in anti-social behavior in the area including a fight breaking out amongst a group of young people:
Officers received reports of a disturbance involving a group of youths within Sighthill Park in Edinburgh around 4.30pm on Wednesday, 15 June, 2022.
Officers attended and traced one male youth who had sustained minor injuries.
Enquiries into the incident are ongoing and officers will continue to carry out patrols in the area.
If you have any concerns about criminality or know who is involved, please speak to officers, call 101, or call 999 in an emergency. Alternatively you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers 100% anonymously, on 0800 555 111 or report anonymously online.
