Over the last week many fans have been in touch with us at FSF HQ concerned about police use of dispersal zones.
This follows news that Merseyside Police have invoked powers enabling them to issue Dispersal Notices over a period of 12 hours for Grimsby Town's visit to Prenton Park as they prepare take on Tranmere Rovers this weekend.
What are dispersal zones?
Dispersal zones are authorised under section 34 of the Anti-social behaviour, Crime and Policing Act (2014).
They give police the power to ask a citizen to leave the designated area if officers believe they have, or are likely to, contribute to the "harassment, alarm or distress" of members of the public within the zone or that they (the police) believe it necessary for reducing crime or disorder.
