Three people have been ordered to leave a town centre as police crackdown on street drinking and anti-social behaviour (ASB).
Thetford officers were in the town centre on Sunday, August 25 as part of ASB patrols after an increase in crime.
Three people were given direction to leave orders banning them from the town centre for the next two days.
A fourth person was arrested for breaching bail and is set to appear in court.
Speaking about ASB earlier this month, PC Leah Norton, from the Thetford Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: "We know this type of behaviour can have a significant impact on the local community which is why we've launched a dedicated operation to address it.
