Minister: Police cut youth crimes by 36% by 2022 | Jobs Recent

AN ATTEMPT to combat misbehavior and vandalism has resulted in a 36% reduction in youth crime in the first nine months of the year, the Home Affairs Minister has said.

Deputy Helen Miles explained the work done by the police from the State and the armed forces in response to a written question from a representative of St Brelade.

Deputy Moz Scott asked the minister to outline the measures being taken in areas such as Coronation Park, Havre des Pas and St Brelade’s Bay.

Incidents are assessed for risk based on the level of threat and potential harm, Deputy Miles said, and are responded to by State or local authorities.
