EYES DOWN

Here is a photo of new-ish Chief Constable of North Wales Police, Mark Polin.

Last week the Daily Post reported that the number of well-known criminals being monitored by North Wales Police had dropped from 247 in 2005/6 to currently 156 according to Home Office figures. That doesn’t mean the number of offenders has dropped, just the number being monitored.

It seems as if the whole of Wales has become a dumping ground for people with behavioural problems such as persistent offending, and in Rhyl we have projects using money from the public purse to settle criminals in our midst – with the knowledge our elected representatives.

Offenders can get housing priority and special services that are unavailable to other people. In these ways bad behaviour is rewarded.
