POLICE are urging anyone with complaints about antisocial behaviour in Pioneer Parade, Ravenswood, to report it.
Inspector Michael Johnston yesterday responded to a series of complaints from residents in recent days that claim violence, drug use, theft and other criminal activity is rife in the area.
But Inspector Johnston said the incidence of crime was no higher in Pioneer Parade than in any other street.
He said people at times made complaints to the media but did not tell the police, which meant the matter could not be investigated.
He urged anyone with a concern to make a statement to police and be prepared to give evidence in court.
Inspector Johnston said people need not fear retribution if they reported incidents to police.
More people have made claims of antisocial behaviour in the street since a resident last week published a public notice and spoke to The Examiner.
Residents, who did not want to be named, claimed dogs were being stolen and made to fight at night in nearby bushland and that they expected more arson attacks on Housing Tasmania properties.
