Our service is continually working on solutions to youth crime and crime in general. It is not our intention to down play any crime. We are working diligently to combat crime in our community.
I am very aware of a “gang” of youths in our community that have identified themselves as a gang. I refuse to name them as I believe that this would only bolster their image or “street cred.” Yes, this is how gangs are formed and if not targeted then the problem grows. We are working on a solution. I urge input from all members of our community.
I thank you for your patience and understanding during this trying time.
