According to reports, gangs have attacked firefighters and scared residents in their neighborhoods, prompting officials to take drastic measures.

After a series of incidents last week, police officers will be swarming all over Merseyside this Halloween weekend.

The officers will be on duty over the next few nights after gangs attacked firefighters and scared residents.

The orders fall under section 34 of the Anti-Social Behaviour & Policing Act 2014, which empowers police officers and police support staff to instruct people they suspect of causing or are likely to cause crime, harassment or anti-social behaviour towards members of the public to leave a designated area and not return for up to 48 hours.

Dispersal zones now cover the areas where officials believe there may be unrest in the coming days and have issued a series of maps to outline where the orders will be in effect.

On Friday Merseyside police confirmed that more patrols will be deployed in Liverpool, Wirral and Knowsley to combat anti-social behaviour and disorder.

In parts of Halewood and Huyton, exclusion zones are to be set up this weekend following recent reports of anti-social behaviour and disorder.

Should a person who has previously been ordered to leave the area return, a crime would be committed for which he or she could ultimately be arrested.

This follows reports of young people gathering in large groups and throwing objects, including fireworks, trying to do harm, shouting and screaming, using foul and offensive language.

The order will be in effect from Friday, October 30, 5:00 p.m., until Sunday, November 1, 5:00 p.m., and officers will remain in the area to ensure a visible presence and deal with any incidents that may occur.

In the Huyton area, youths have also caused harassment in abandoned offices.

In parts of Kensington, Tuebrook, West Derby and Croxteth Park, restricted zones were established this weekend following recent reports of anti-social behaviour and disorder.

The dispersal zones cover the area delineated on the maps.

The order will be in effect from Friday, October 30, 4:00 p.m. until Sunday, November 1, 4:00 a.m., and officers will remain in the area to ensure a visible presence and deal with any incidents that may occur.

Officers from the Birkenhead local police team have established a 48-hour zone in response to recent anti-social behaviour and crime in the area.
