During the police session, children and young people engaged in discussion regarding the riots around the country and issues of criminality, peer pressures etc.
The Team continues to address issues surrounding illegal drug use and young people by providing high visibility patrols and stop checks. These patrols have assisted with the gathering of intelligence which will be closely monitored and actioned by officers.
