Don't fall foul of the law

The type of behaviour and attitudes young people are exposed to by their peers will very often mould and shape their opinions, and the type of company they keep can in some occasions shape their opinions and attitudes in a negative way. 

 Some young people who join a gang may be too naïve to understand the serious consequences of gang fighting, while others can develop an ‘us and them’ attitude with the Police, not realising that the Police have their best interests at heart. 

 Other young people may wish to speak to the Police over crimes they have witnessed, but fear being labelled a ‘grass’ by people of all ages in their community. 

 By giving young people the right information, they can be educated in an appropriate way as to the dangers of being in a gang, and properly signposted so that they can anonymously report crimes without fear of reprisals.
