How Mosquito Helped A Shopping Centre

Location: Fareham Shopping Centre

Problem: Gatherings of large quantities of youths and escalating anti-social behaviour

On installing a Mosquito device:

The results were quite dramatic, with youths vacating the area within minutes within a 20-metre radius. Further devices are now being considered to further expand the area of coverage and prevent youths gathering in anti-social hot spots.

As a beat officer working in Bournemouth I had to deal with the problem of underage drinking and anti-social behaviour that regularly occurred at the rear of a community centre. We installed the mosquito system at the community centre for a trial period of approximately eight weeks. From the moment the system was deployed I was very impressed with its effectiveness. The rear of the community centre became deserted and therefore all the anti-social behaviour problems ceased.

Approximately £54k worth of damage over a 12-month period preceded the installation. There have been a couple of further minor incidents of vandalism but not while the units where switched on and operational. I have regular contact with the school, and they have suffered no further vandalism since the units were fitted.
