Have your say on how to tackle youth offending

First published in News

YOU can have your say on how youth offending is being tackled across Hampshire.

The panel which assesses Hampshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Simon Hayes, pictured, will meet to see how well he is tackling youth offending.

And the Hampshire Police and Crime Panel want the public’s views ahead of their meeting with Mr Hayes on October 3.

One of Mr Hayes’ pledges since becoming PCC has been to cut youth offending in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

And the panel wants feedback from the public on how well the PCC is currently working with partners to reduce the number of youngsters entering the criminal justice system.

They also want residents’ views on what interventions and programmes exist which could be considered part of the priority to cut youth offending and what other best practices exist which should be considered as part of his pledge.

Hampshire Police and Crime Panel Chairman and Isle of Wight Councillor David Stewart said: “These proactive scrutiny sessions provide the panel with an opportunity to represent the voice and expectations of residents, and relay their feedback to the PCC.

“The PCC is accountable to the public. Any views the public can give us on how effectively he is tackling his priority to improve frontline policing to deter criminals and keep communities safe, will play an important part in helping the panel scrutinise and support his work.”

The deadline for feedback is September 18.

Responses can be sent by email to members.services@hants.gov.uk or posted to Katie Benton, Scrutiny Officer to the Hampshire Police and Crime Panel, Hampshire County Council Corporate Services (Room 102), Elizabeth II Court South, The Castle, Winchester, SO23 8UJ.

The police need to get hands on. Bring back the truncheon and use it. People won't muck about once they feel iron wood across their backs.

It's all about 'role models' & leading by example!
How can we expect the kids to behave when the people who should be acting as 'role models' can't even begin to behave properly.
We have a weak judicial that is infiltrated by the 'do gooders' & human rights brigade.
That said, there is a sizable element of corruption in the Police force too.
If you put that along size politicians that fiddle their expenses & lie, celebrities that do unspeakable things to children.
What real chance do the kids have in getting it right.
All we can hope for is that the parents do a good job (which fortunately most do).

I agree with much of what you say.
It is mainly about role models and sadly there are so many broken families that simply don't care what trouble there off spring get upto.

I'm unsure how you could directly tackle Youth crime unless we start holding the parents of these youths to account, maybe give them a huge fine so they discipline their children better?

It is tricky & I think that you can't put every case in the same box.
Some of the parents are barely more than children themselves.
I do think that some kids are being made to grown up too quickly & I think that a lot of that is to do with media influences & celebrity worship.
The problem is a big melting pot of different things I think & so it's not easy to attribute it to one thing in particular.

Again I agree,

Just look at the boy band One Direction, one of them was seen smoking a joint and it hit the headlines, his fans came rushing to his defense, so they now feel smoking that stinky brain numbing stuff is perfectly acceptable.
