  • How Police deal with "yobs"

    Quite an interesting article and information could be used to push for similar action nationwide?

    Interesting, thanks Holly Yes, this could definitely be used effectively nationally I think.



    Out of interest, I think it's Halifax that has the public signs up in the centre that warns people from drinking alcohol in public places and an on the spot fine is used if anyone is caught doing so. Not sure if Hudds has similar in place, don't think so?

      I think there's a similar scheme here in Liverpool. I've seen the cctv van a few times, but usually during the day, looking for truants, I think. Then we had the shop-a-yob thing going on.



      I don't think things will change much until we make parents accountable for their kids actions. If they thought THEY'D have to go to parenting classes, or lose child benefit, lose their tenancies or pay fines they might take more notice of what their little darlings were getting up to.

        What was that case a while back, can't quite remember where the mother was sent to prison for allowing her daughter (?) to truant from school all the time? Can't quite remember.
