Late-night disturbances in East Corrimal

Residents and business owners in East Corrimal have asked for help to deal with late-night antisocial behaviour in the suburb.

Member for Keira Ryan Park said a number of people had contacted him in recent months concerned with behaviour ranging from abusive language to graffiti.

"Some of the issues have been around general antisocial behaviour, causing problems late into the evenings or early hours," he said.

"It's been swearing at people, sometimes graffiti, sometimes throwing objects."

Mr Park said transient populations, particularly during the holiday season, contributed to the problem.

"It's a quiet area in general, but no doubt people have raised concerns about safety on occasions in that area."

Mr Park said he had written to Wollongong police outlining residents' concerns.

Crime manager Detective Inspector Tim Beattie said police "endeavoured to maintain a profile across all suburbs in the command" while also responding to specific calls for assistance.

Insp Beattie said members of the public needed to contact police as soon as there was a problem.
