The Youth Crime Action Plan is a
comprehensive, cross-government
analysis of what further we need to do
to tackle youth crime. It sets out a
‘triple track’ approach of enforcement
and punishment where behaviour is
unacceptable, non-negotiable support
and challenge where it is most needed,
and better and earlier prevention. It
makes clear that we will not tolerate
the behaviour of the minority which
causes misery and suffering to others,
especially their victims who, more often
than not are other young people. People
have a responsibility to obey the law if
we are to deliver fairness and prosperity
to all communities. (excerpt) The use of restorative processes is a part of the plan.
