A 45-year-old man from St Albans was given a three-year Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) after other interventions failed to stop his anti-social behaviour.
Tarcus Tree, of Tennyson Road, St Albans, appeared at St Albans Magistrates on Monday, JulY 19 for being drunk in the city’s alcohol-free zone.
Tree breached his Community Protection Notice (CPN) which was issued after he breached his initial Community Protection Warning (CPW).
The court heard how Tree was found intoxicated on April 16, 2021 and in possession of an open vessel of alcohol in the public spaces protection order (PSPO) area.
Sergeant Mike Saunders from the Community Safety Unit explained: “He breached his CPN four times since January 2020 by being constantly intoxicated in the city centre and in possession of alcohol. Under the CBO, one of his conditions is to work with a specialist agency to deal with his alcohol dependency for his own well-being.
“Such behaviour will not be tolerated under Section 22 of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014. If he breaches the CBO conditions, he will be arrested.”
Under the CBO, he must abide by the following conditions or he faces arrest:
Not to be intoxicated within the PSPO area of St Albans, Hertfordshire.
Not to be in possession of an open vessel of alcohol within the PSPO area of St Albans, Hertfordshire.
To engage with CGL Spectrum initially by personal assessment and to further engage with subsequent treatment. Additionally, to allow consent for CGL Spectrum to share information with the police around engagement.
