GOOD JOB: Police obtain closure order on St Albans property following complaints of anti-social behaviour

 Published on: 14th April 2021   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

A partial closure order has been successfully granted for a property in St Albans following complaints about anti-social behaviour and suspected drug use.

The order relates to a flat at Telford Court, Alma Road. The order application was heard at St Albans Magistrates court on Thursday 1 April and has been obtained for three months from Thursday, April 1 to Wednesday, June 30, 2021. 

The partial closure order prohibits anyone from entering the property other than the registered tenant, their partner and children, as well as two others for childcare. Access is also authorised for St Albans City & District Council and their agents, utility companies in an emergency and the emergency services.

Sergeant Mike Saunders, of the Community Safety Unit, said: “We had received numerous reports concerning anti-social behaviour and potential drug related activity at the address.

“We worked in partnership with St Albans City & District Council to gather evidence in support of the partial closure order, which we felt were necessary to preserve the quality of life for other residents in Telford Court.”

Assistant Investigator Simran Chana, also from the Community Safety Unit, added: “We hope this latest development will reassure residents that we are listening, and we will take appropriate action when they report crime and anti-social behaviour to us.

“Anyone with information about anti-social behaviour or drug activity in their neighbourhood is urged to please report the details to us, so that we can take action to make your community safer. Your calls can make a real difference.”

You can report information about crime and anti-social behaviour by filling out the online reporting form at, speaking to an operator in the Force Communications Room via online web chat at, calling our non-emergency telephone number 101 (in an emergency, always dial 999).
