Authorities are hoping to hold more youth offenders to account to “ensure they are educated on the consequences of their actions”

“Police would also like to remind community members to report issues like this directly to police, rather than community notice boards on social media.”

“This will ensure a timely response and will help us to effectively curb the offending.”
