THE police have praised young Islanders after a dramatic fall in youth crime.

The police and the courts have recorded a smaller number of offences committed by under-18s so far this year, and the number of youths detained at the young offenders wing at La Moye and Greenfields remand centre for offences is at an all-time low.

Home Affairs Minister Ian Le Marquand, says that the reduction may be a statistical ‘blip’ he has also said that a package of measures that began in 2003 to tackle a surge in youth offending may be responsible.
The police have praised the Island’s young people, saying that the vast majority are law-abiding.
