Fife Police appeal to parents after rise in youth anti-social behaviour
Police in Fife have urged parents to know where their children are after a large rise in youth anti-social behaviour.
They also want them to actively discourage them from using public transport to travel to other parts of the Kingdom where they socialise in large groups, and there have been reports of misbehaviour.
The appeals came via social media accounts run by Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath police.
In west Fife, officers reported “a large increase” in trouble involving youths - and some of it is down to people travelling from the Kirkcaldy area.
The strong ‘stay local’ message was also endorsed by Kirkcaldy Police who urged: “Can we once again ask parents to ensure that they know what their children are up to whilst out and about, and actively discourage their children from using public transport to travel to different areas, or to socialise in large groups; paying attention to Covid restrictions?”
