Hardwick to get tough on thugs

New Police and Crime Commissioner for Lincolnshire Alan Hardwick has promised to get tough on antisocial behaviour in his latest interview.

Mr Hardwick said antisocial behaviour was at the top of his hit list for 2013.

“Antisocial behaviour is the top priority in the county. I have my own priorities for that and I personally would like to see a complete ban on street drinking,” he said. “That is something I know would receive huge support from the people of Lincolnshire, drinking is at the root of many causes of antisocial behaviour.”

Mr Hardwick has met with the Home Secretary Theresa May and has travelled around the county in a bid to get to grips with the task he faces. He thanked the people of Lincolnshire for electing him in the role and promised to repay their ‘faith and confidence’.

“No matter what financial penalties or evils the government put on us, we can together create the force that we want.”
