The Aberystwyth Behave or Be Banned (BOBB) is a scheme run by licensees within the town. Licensees, Managers and Staff of public houses and nightclubs have the right to refuse entry to anyone.  BOBB Scheme meetings are held every six weeks to discuss any issues arising within their establishments.  Where persons have committed offences or behaved in an inappropriate manner on licenced premises the members can vote to have that person banned.  This ban will apply to all establishments participating in the BOBB Scheme and bans can vary from six months to three years.  If a person who is banned tries to enter licenced premises that are participating in the BOBB Scheme they will be referred back to the next meeting and could have their ban lengthened.  Persons that have been banned can appeal their ban by writing to the committee.
Aberystwyth Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) has strong links with Licensees in Aberystwyth town and fully support the BOBB scheme.
For further information regarding the BOBB Scheme please contact your Neighbourhood Policing Team on 101 or contact and any queries can be forwarded on your behalf to the Committee for their attention at the next meeting.

A message from Aberystwyth Town NPT. Mindless vandalism caused to vehicles at night is a great cause for concern.
A large percentage of the damage is being caused to wing mirrors. The damage is caused by an individual who has had too much to drink and for no apparent reason decides to cause criminal damage on their way home.

Wing mirrors stick out from cars and can easily be targeted with a kick or grabbed hold of and ripped off.  Our message is fold your wing mirrors in, or whenever you park your car and leave it unattended. (particularly if you live in an area that is used as a late night
route home from the pub) take the mirrors. 

This simple act may make your vehicle appear less of a target and help to reduce the chance of you becoming a victim of crime.


01 January 0001

Criminal Damage continues in Aberystwyth Town with vehicles being “keyed” and shop premises front windows being smashed. 

Please can members of the public maintain vigilance and contact Dyfed Powys Police regarding any information.

ASB Issues – Aberystwyth Town

To monitor and address anti-social behaviour issues in Aberystwyth Town:

1. The consumption of alcohol within the designated No Drinking Zone

Proactive patrols continue and numerous people have had alcoholic drinks seized from them by officers after being found drinking within the prohibited area.

2. Criminal Damage to Vehicles

Since the implementation of portable CCTV cameras around affected areas, reports of criminal damage to vehicles have fallen dramatically.  Local residents are encouraged to report any future instances of damage at the earliest opportunity to give officers the best chance of catching offenders and to ensure that the portable cameras are deployed in the correct areas.

3. Graffiti

Reports of graffiti in town have reduced, however, officers are still looking for any information that could assist with identifying offenders.

Local Notices

During the Halloween and Bonfire celebrations, officers are increasing patrols in their communities to reassure people and to enable us to react quickly to anyone who uses Halloween or bonfire night as an excuse to commit anti-social behaviour.


Some of our residents do worry when trick or treaters knock the door. While we do not want to spoil people’s enjoyment, we also don’t want it to get out of hand and cause people to feel threatened in their own home.


Trick or treating advice includes:

• Always go with an adult

• Only to go to houses where you or your friends know the people and know you are welcome

• Only go to houses displaying the ‘trick or treaters’ welcome poster

• Don’t talk to strangers

• Don’t enter the house always stay on the doorstep
