Location: Community Co-Operative Stores
Problem: Unwanted youths gathering at certain times of the day intimidating shoppers from entering the store, anti-social behaviour and littering.
On installing a Mosquito device:
Crowds have been dispersed quickly without any complaints or negative feedback. Shoppers can once again go about their business without having to negotiate troublesome youths. It has made a noticeable difference to the immediate area around the stores.
The results show that the trial has been successful and there has been positive feedback and enthusiasm from the stores. No negative feedback or complaints have been received by either store or from members of the public.
