The Tribune (NZ) - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

Delinquent youths caus­ing trou­ble in city streets is never a new prob­lem.

The young trou­ble­some teens will al­ways find new places to hang out and new peo­ple to ter­rorise through­out any city, and it’s un­for­tu­nate that the lat­est is­sues have arisen in Ge­orge St.

Ge­orge St, with its charm­ing cafes and bou­tique shops, is a lively and quaint area of the city and while no par­tic­u­lar street de­serves trou­ble, it seems to mar the land­scape a lit­tle more in this sweet street.

As we rapidly ap­proach Christ­mas, I hope the po­lice are se­ri­ous in their re­solve to pa­trol the streets more fre­quently.

It will en­sure the fes­tive sea­son feels safe, as it should, for both shop­pers and re­tail­ers, de­spite the chaotic na­ture of Christ­mas shop­ping in what is a very busy and stress­ful time.
