To start off I would like to say that the men and women in uniform are doing an excellent job at fighting crime...but my question to you is..."Will there not be a spike in the adult detention system if these young offenders just get a slap on the wrist for their crimes? " I have been witness to many young offenders at court and they seem to be getting away with these things not to mention most of them are repeat offenders..I also find that many police officers are getting discouraged with the court system that allows these kids to get off when so much manpower has been put in to get these kids in front of a judge as well as your average citzen..Is there anywhere we can go to change these slack laws when it comes to these young offenders? prove once and for all WE ALL want to live in a safe world where we can walk down the street free of gangs and volience????...Thanks for reading and keep up the good work...KUDOS to you all

Thank you for sharing your concerns with us. As police officers it is our job to enforce existing legislation, and if citizens would like to change legislation you should contact a local federal Member of Parliment.
