Youth plan pitched for Hamilton

amid concern at crime

Amidst frustration about youngsters doing ram raids and robberies, Hamilton’s council is considering a wider youth action plan.

This would be on top of a recent $1m from the Government for crime prevention, for which a project list is nearly complete.

City councillors, some wary of forking out extra money on a plan, have agreed to have a working group look at how existing youth organisations could work closer with the council.

A gap analysis will also see what new youth sector initiatives are needed and how the council might respond with the likes of an action plan – which would cover youth issues generally, not just crime.
