Reason for Authority (Brief Summary for Publication)
 I have read the intelligence assessment and have been briefed by Supt Munroe from BWC. I am aware the area requested as a Section 60 S&S area forms part of a serious youth violence hotspot and recent issues lead me to believe that incidents and tensions are escalating. If not proactively managed through visible policing patrols and a section 60 authority it is highly likely further incidents of violence will occur involving young people and weapons, specifically knives or bladed articles. I am satisfied with the community consultation that has been carried out and the plan to message this out further through corporate communications and local NHT’s via the KIN network.   I authorise the use of this tactic for a 24 hour period and will review this at the 24 hour point.
