From Afghanistan to Essex: night vision goggles help combat anti-social behaviour

Night vision goggles have been issued to police in Essex to help drive misbehavers out of parks in Benfleet and on Canvey Island. Officers will be deployed to look for teenagers who cause trouble after dark.

The goggles make it easier for police to see what large groups of teenagers get up to from afar. According to one policeman: “If you see them at a distance and you shout out, or they see us using torches, they can move on before we catch them. Having these night goggles means they can’t see us coming, but we can see what they are doing and keep on top of it.”

The two sets of goggles have been provided by Castle Point Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnership at a cost of £100 each. The police now put one set to use on Canvey, while the other is in parks and open spaces across Benfleet now the schools have broken up.
