Operation Adriatic to see Section 35 dispersal authorised on Aberavon beachfront

Last month we recommenced Operation Adriatic, an annual summer beachfront operation designed to combat anti-social behaviour.


South Wales Police is working closely in partnership with Neath Port Talbot Council, Safer Neath Port Talbot, the RNLI and other agencies in order to make the beachfront a pleasant space for all to enjoy.


On occasions throughout the summer, Section 35 dispersal will be authorised on the beachfront, meaning that people involved in anti-social behaviour will be required to leave the area.


The designated area to leave is defined as: Entirety of the Beach area including the ‘Small Beach’, North Pier, and the entirety of the promenade area including businesses along the promenade such as Remo’s and Franco’s to Baglan Bay Beach, including the dunes at this beach.


Inspector Jared Easton said:


“This yearly operation, which takes place during the summer months, will see officers tackle anti-social behaviour typically associated with the beachfront, such as drunkenness, inconsiderate use of barbecues, dog fouling, loud music, and parking, amongst other issues.


“Officers will be actively interacting with beach visitors, offering assistance, providing information, and providing a welcoming atmosphere, all while promoting safety and ensuring the beach is a place that everyone can enjoy.”
