Private detectives from Private Detectives in Leeds respond to BBC News article dated 13th Feb 2013: Youth and child crime rates fall in Wales, YOT figures show, with youth crime prevention services

In our expert opinion some children are more likely to become involved in crime because of boredom, lack of discipline and lack of parental attention. The latter could be a result of being a one parent family or the need for both parents to work full time

According to the report from BBC News Wales a survey by the Youth Offending Team states that the number of children in Wales, getting caught up in crime last year has fallen from 2,044 incidents to 428 incidents. This fall is attributed to the targeting of children more likely to get into trouble and reinforcing the responsibilities of parents and carers for the behaviour of their children.

In Swansea the police and social services, together with health and social workers decide which route the young offer should go through when they have committed a crime, whether it be through the courts and end up with a criminal record or if the child would benefit from a second chance. The child will still be punished for crimes and anti-social behaviour to make amends but they will not receive a criminal record. The victim is also encouraged to become involved to make the situation more real for the child and the child is monitored to prevent further offending.

Private Detectives in Leeds have a high regard for this system and the work that the Swansea authorities and parents are putting into it. At Private Detectives in Leeds they are hoping that their youth crime prevention services will help to achieve the sort of success that they have in Swansea. Working with local agencies, police, council and social services and with local schools, youth crime prevention services include getting to know the local children who are most likely to offend by visiting schools and youth clubs, parental monitoring of both PC’s and mobile phones, curfew checks and many other preventions. Private Detectives in Leeds are keen to promote more child friendly social activities such as opening more youth clubs, discount prices for bowling, cinema, skate parks and swimming pools.

A spokesperson from Private Detectives in Leeds said:

“In our expert opinion, some children are more likely to become involved in crime because of boredom, lack of discipline and lack of parental attention. The latter could be a result of being a one parent family or the need for both parents to work full time.”
