Fixed penalty notices are issued for environmental crimes and breaches of a Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO).
Fixed penalty notices can be issued by either Police Constables, Police Community Support Officers, Prevention and Enforcement Service (PES) officers who work for the council or by the private enforcement company, Kingdom, who act on our behalf.
Offences which you may be given a fixed penalty notice for include:
- Breaching a condition of a Public Spaces protection Order (PSPO)
- Spraying graffiti
- Dog fouling
