“Our firefighters will be directed to areas in the community affected by anti-social behaviour. They will engage with young people in an effort to understand what their concerns are and the reasons why anti-social behaviour is taking place. “We can then feed this information to partners such as Lichfield District Safer Community Partnership and the police in the hope that it has a positive impact on the number of associated incidents occurring.”Nina Dawes, Chairperson of Lichfield District Safer Community Partnership, said:
“It is so important that we find out the root cause of why a small number of young people get involved in anti-social activities. Simply moving them on is a very short term solution to the problem. “This kind of project is all about engaging with young people to look at what we can do to direct their attention into constructive activities. We’re delighted to be involved, as tackling anti-social behaviour is one of our key aims.”
