We have no such plans. It is for the police working with the Police and Crime Commissioners, and with other local agencies to decide on the most appropriate approach to antisocial behaviour in a particular area. That approach may or may not include the use of Mosquito devices, but agencies have a responsibility to communicate with people in the community, including young people, to involve them and take account of their views.
