Police are right to take youth crime seriously

In response to the latest figures on arrests of under-18s, Peter Cuthbertson told
These figures reflect a fall in offending, but youth crime remains a major problem and police are right to take it seriously.
Nearly all of these 200,000 arrests were for serious crimes like violence, theft and burglary. It is vital for public safety that strong punishment follows arrest for young thugs.
