Bring back the Youth Action Teams

Joint council/police teams addressing casual crime and vandalism committed by youth - aiming to solve the problem creatively through engagement.

We had them before. They worked.

Why the contribution is important

Most of the trouble in our neighbourhood is caused by bored teens - usually the same ones again and again. Ot escalates - they were scratching cars and pushing over rubbish bins. Now they're setting fire to them. They need active constructive engagement - not just the thrill of a high speed chase every now and then.
